We are living in unparalleled times. Saying so is such an understatement that I am reluctant to be cliché. And yet, it’s obvious to everyone. A sweeping virus, swinging stock markets, and increasingly polarized dynamics at social and political levels, can pull us off course. Public health professionals call upon us to shelter in place. Practicing physical distancing is almost the new normal. In the midst of these turbulent seas, many of us are experiencing anxiety, isolation and loneliness. What can we do? As I live into my own reactions to the news of the moment, my worldview has been...

A recent article published in the online magazine, Uplift, discusses Marilyn Schlitz's parapsychology experiments. Dr. Marilyn Schlitz has conducted some of the most prominent parapsychology experiments in history. In the lab, she has explored psi phenomena like the ability of a person’s thoughts to physically affect another person’s body. She has taught at Trinity University, Stanford University, Harvard Medical Centers, and currently at Silicon Valley’s Sofia University. She has lectured at institutions including the United Nations and the Smithsonian Institution. Schlitz has been instrumental in making inroads for parapsychology into mainstream science—in starting to bridge the gap between believers and skeptics. But even if skeptics...

A recent article published in the online magazine, Inverse, details the the life and dreaming culture of the indigenous Achuar peoples of the Amazon. I was interviewed for this piece, drawing upon my experiences working with and conducting anthropological research with this thriving jungle community 20 years ago. Specifically, I had studied the dreaming culture of the Achuar who interpret dreams daily to inform their lives and act for their future. In partnership with a dozen young Achuar men who agreed to record their dreams for the course of one year, the collaboration yielded a deep perspective into the power of sharing dreams amongst a community, and...

What does it mean to be part of a greater whole? How does our worldview, or model of reality, impact what we understand about who we are and how we relate to others? And how can we become more aware of all the ways we are part of an interrelated, global community? It’s clear that we are social beings from the very beginning of life. Social relations impact every aspect of our being. Of course, there is developmental variability in the extent to which each of us is aware of culture’s impact on us. It takes a level of perceptual acuity,...

How can you find the inner resilience to match the outer complexities of your life? I ask myself this question everyday. It is sometimes a struggle, just to turn on my computer, or get my son to school, or get through the dishes on the way to making breakfast. My most important tool is simple: practice mindfulness by taking time to center and track my breathing. Simple. Powerful. And easy to forget when we’re caught up in firestorms of our busy lives. But the value of mindfulness is not new to our modern world. Far from it. For thousands of years, people...
