I watched Ram Dass’ movie Fierce Grace yesterday. It touched me deeply. If you don’t know about Ram Dass, look him up, look up his books. A beautiful soul.

Keith Jarrett’s Köln Concert is my all-time favorite. It’s my go to when I need grounding and centering. I had *no* idea what happened leading up to the concert. As he arrived at the concert hall he noticed that the piano was out of tune. He was livid and said he couldn’t play. But he had empathy for the organizers and decided to conquer the challenge. Absolutely inspiring. He flipped a seemingly impossible situation. AIt became the most successful solo jazz album in history! Wonderful!
This Tiny Desk concert with Daniil Trifonov made me gasp.
The film Moving the Giants profiles David Milarch, an arborist from central Michigan. In 1991, Milarch had a near death experience that inspired a personal quest – to archive the genetics of the world’s largest trees before they’re gone and to replant global forests to fight climate change.
I was in the room when Gabby Rivera gave this talk. I was sitting in first row and feeling my heart opening listening to her story. 11mins well spent.
The way to my heart is paved with cheese. So happy for this brief history of cheese find.
Last week, while in San Francisco, I had the unexpected pleasure to meet contemporary American artist Pae White. Her work is stunning.
The world is full of super inspiring, creative humans.
While visiting my friend in California last week I got to experience this pocket projector by miroir. I would have never thought such a tiny projector could be so powerful. Projecting a movie on my bedroom ceiling sounds pretty cool…

An exploration of the basic questions for anyone attempting to do business in a conscious way. Is it possible to do business, make a profit, act in truth and integrity and be of genuine service all at once? In his presentation Ram Dass depthfully sheds light and answers.
Last week, during my solo birthday trip to New Mexico, I was introduced to the work of Ram Dass. What a beautiful world it has opened up.
From 1967 to 1972, the Ace of Cups were at the epicenter of the ‘60s cultural and social revolution, the first ever all female rock band. They shared stages with everyone from The Band to the Grateful Dead, and were chosen to open for Jimi Hendrix the week after his groundbreaking performance at The Monterey Pop Festival.
Despite eliciting music industry interest for their exceptional songs, sublime harmonies and exuberant live performances, the Ace of Cups never got the chance to make a record… until now.
Check out their music. Love these ladies so much.
I admire how David and Clare Hieatt show up in this world. I respect their mission to revive a jeans town in Wales with their jeans company called Hiut Denim. Love how they are highlighting their employees and their strengths and loves in this feature.
They are also the forces behind my favorite tiny conference, called the Do Lectures.
