There’s a Place in Washington, D.C.

 To learn the Inner Arts.

And what are the inner arts?

We all have heard of them, seen them in special people, people who are more:

creative, productive, stronger, imaginative, deeper, resilient, positive, wiser, and aware than the average person.

Now you can learn what they know.

We have actually felt the inner arts on unique occasions. Those were the times when we were the most engaged, energized, connected, strong, positive, smart, and creative. Life felt different and was different, then.

But most days, weeks, dare I say, months don’t feel the way we want them to.

We feel stuck,
our inner world is in conflict or
we just want to sit on the couch most evenings.

We never seem to get done what we want to get done

never tap the riches we know we have.

We may even feel downright ill,
burned out,
feel de-energized most of the time.

Stress has become our most vocal roommate.

We have lost our spark
and with it,
we have lost our creativity.

We see more of overwhelm, scatteredness, and lack of confidence than we do our friends.

Ugh. Things have to get better. Whatever happen to our dreams of doing something more, something else? How can we be one of those who has mastered the inner arts?

You Get the Tools

Thank goodness there are specific things to do to improve our lives. That truth is what set me on the road decades ago to research, learn, practice. Much I had to do, I had to do the hard way, that is, pull things together on my own.

But, I’ve also had help from some of the best experts.

Experts I made sure to meet and to jump through the hoops of their training.

It All Comes Together…for You

I’m constantly working to pull all this learning, research, experience from teaching others, and insights from my personal practice to develop a fresh, innovative, meaningful package of training highly useful to people like you. Learning and then teaching is my thing. I have done this for decades and I will never stop. Through much trial and error, and endless refinements…

My teaching is:
Easy to learn

I will share with you what I’ve learned on my journey around to the experts. I’ll save you the airfare, rental car costs, and motel charges. Not bad.

Enough talk. Let’s look at four important inner arts.

Get trained in one, two, three, or all.

Take a look at what’s available.

Getting Things Done Skills

Is this you…..can’t get an important creative project started? Can’t keep going? Frustrated you are not doing your potential? Not following thru on what you know how to do and want to do?

Face it, ARE A STUCK CREATIVE! No doubt about it!

Learn How To Self-Coach to Get That Book, Painting, Screenplay, Idea, Invention or Any Other Project Started and Done

Got a project shoved away in the drawer and you can’t pick it up again? Don’t have a project but know you want to do more with your life?

Getting projects started and done is tough work, especially if they are something that is an “add-on”.  We have our regular life—our job, household stuff, visiting with friends, family, and pets, etc, etc., etc. When and how can we ever get down to our creative projects!?

Help is available for creatives (that means artists, inventors, performers, writers – anyone – who has a project in mind but just can’t get the darn thing done.)

Learn the secrets of overcoming:

-the challenges we face every time we start (or restart) a project
-our worse enemy, our inner critics
-no time
-not knowing where to start
-lack of focus while you work and when you don’t work
-lack of self-discipline and persistence (these are different skills)

  • Learn how to start a daily habit of being productive

  • Learn how to spot and deal with obstacles, excuses, and distractions

  • Learn about what tools, apps, and services can help you

  • Learn how to change yourself to be the creative and productive person you want to be

Imagination Skills

We all have heard of the power of imagination but who ever showed us how to tap it?

Edison would make sure to slowly drift off to sleep when napping so he could catch ideas

Psychologist Carl Jung helped himself and his patients conquer all manner of issues

Dali, like Edison, got his surreal inspirations from coasting between waking and sleeping

Lindsey Vonn, alpine ski racer, gold medalist deeply visualizes every twist and turn her body will take hundreds of times before a competition.

All of these people (and more creative, wise, insightful, etc.) people are, what I call, armchair dreamers.

What’s that?  Why an armchair?  Each of the people above knew how to tap the unconscious and our ability to visualize, imagine, and dream and did something with that.  I mention armchair because, it is the place where a heck of a lot of — thinking, planning, introspection, napping, and dreaming happens. Meditation has it’s cushions and yoga has it’s mats.  Visualization, imagination, and dream decoding relies upon the comfortable place where we sit when we practice these skills.

With visualization, imagination, and dreaming, we can…

-receive insights
-mind travel to the beach or if we are spiritually-minded go to wonderful places and experience wonderful things
-redefine how we experience illness and pain
-rehearse new skills, to get closer to peak performance
-relax deeply
-energize sharply
-resolve inner conflicts
-find what we need to let go of the past
-discover what we must do to prepare for the future

-and much more

Our imagination is tremendously powerful, deep and broad in its effect.

I know that listening and working with our imagination is something we all can learn (hey, if I can learn it, anyone can).

Want to learn about imagination? Want to experience imagination?

Stress Reduction 24/7 Skills

Stress is energy. Energy can take many forms. Some take you up, some push you down, and some even keep you calm. But you have to know how to tame Wild Stress.

Getting control of your stress energy can make for a great life.

This is what happens when people practice Wild Stress methods:

Stage 1. “I don’t know if this stuff will work but I’ll give it a try. It feels sort of good.”

Stage 2. “Hmmm, you know, this feels pretty good. It takes off the edge. I want to do more.”

Stage 3. “Strange. Much of the stuff that use to drive me nuts, somehow doesn’t bother me as much. Very strange.”

Stage 4. “I’m feeling great in fact, I actually look forward to doing these techniques. I want to spend more time with them and see where it takes me.”

What you will learn:

  • Practical, relatively simple (but powerful) techniques

  • Techniques* that you have seen or heard of before with some surprises thrown in

  • Techniques that have a spin added to them so they help you at the right time and you feel their positive effects fast, even from the first time you practice them.

*Includes: breathing methods; home biofeedback; moving your attention to certain points in your body; eye movements; self-hypnosis; your own set of special images; meditation; positioning your body; and many other tools for managing both stress and relaxation.

Wait, one more thing before you go. I’ve created one more blog.

Wired Meditation focuses widely and deeply on the world of stress measurement devices. Think of heart rate monitors, brainwave equipment like Neurosky and Muse, and breathing trackers like Spire. Keep up to date on new developments and learn how to use current devices better.
