With countries throughout the world grappling with the enormous problems and terrible implications of the coronavirus pandemic, Marco has decided to make this fascinating and stunningly beautiful documentary available for free through Passover (April 9) and Easter (April 12), and I am honored to share it with you.

The True Meaning of Christmas Stories

Here in the northern hemisphere of the Americas, ’tis the season for watching televised reruns of our favorite Christmas movies. Why do we love them so much?  What is it that brings us back, again and again, to re-experience stories we’ve heard so many times?

A Summer of Numinous Moments

In these moments of heightened self-awareness I feel like I’m in touch with beauty, my true Self, and the Source of life. When I was younger, this usually only happened in church.
