    3 steps to begin the most important conversation you could ever have.


    Pete here writing again....
    Start Your Divine Conversation (I use the word Divine, but you should use whatever word works best for you!)
    Learn to Access your inner wisdom and power
    Integrate deep meaning with every day life for Inspired Living

    1- Experience your deepest connection with Life – begin your conversation with the divine!
    So much of our lives can be put on automatic.  So many days are filled with simply moving from one obligation to another.  Who among us has not asked the question along the lines, “Is this really what my life is about?  Is there more to me and this Life experience?  How can I live a deep and meaningful Life consistently?” 
    The answer is a resounding “YES!” there IS so much more than meets the senses, but how do we experienceit if it feels outside of our everyday life?
    Enter, Your Deep Conversation with the Divine!

    2 – Say YES to accessing your inner wisdom, connecting with your spirit and purpose and expressing your heart’s desires in the world. 
    A conversation with the divine is simply connecting with who we truly are in our essence.   This is about seeking true security, enthusiasm of deep connection and experiencing the beauty of clear acceptance.  It’s a conversation that happens not only in the mind, but more importantly, in the heart.  It maybe more appropriate to say it happens through us. 

    At this point you might be saying, that’s nice but, how will this affect those around me?  I can’t drop into this conversation because it might have negative repercussions in my life.  But actually it’s on the contrary, by having this conversation you become MORE available for those around you, you carry a quality if deep connection that is beneficial to all you interact with.  In fact, I believe this is the greatest step to world peace one can take, but that’s a later conversation we can have ;-)

    Also this sounds like some lofty goal to achieve, speaking with the divine.  No matter what your background with spirituality or religion might be, it’s actually a conversation that’s so close, it can begin at any moment.   The divine does speak through you already, it breaths you, beats your heart, it is the intelligence the governs all of the visible and invisible world around us. It is your thoughts, your desires and your dreams.

    My conversation began years ago with a small crack in my life story saying, “There’s got to be something behind all of this (life).  I want to connect with that, nothing else seems as important.”  I later read that Albert Einstein is quoted as saying, “I want to know God’s thoughts: the rest are details.”   And so I have lived my life seeking to listen to that voice, that conversation.  When I’m tune with it, life seems to be filled with magic!  And,  When I’m NOT in tune with it, when I close it off for some reason (usually Fear based, more about that later) life seems chaotic, scary, unhealthy   and out of control.

    Yet deep inner wisdom of the ages has found a way to speak to these seemingly frightening conditions, such as in the Zen proverbs which state so beautifully, “The obstacle ISthe path” and “The snow falls, each flake in it’s appropriate place.” 

    3 – Let your deep conversation be your guide to peace, security and happiness!
    Now, I have the privilege to be in conversations with many special people, in many stages on their walk of Life’s journey.  Most commonly when talking about this deep conversation with the divine I’m asked, “Where’s a good place to start?  What’s a good beginning conversation?”  That’s why I’ve developed this pilot program, to make it easier for you to begin and sustain the conversation wherever you find yourself in Life’s journey.

    Once you’ve begun the conversation, learn how you can then infuse and implement the inner wisdom, compassion, creativity and divine guidance in your everyday living.  

    I'm ready to lead this new online course (get the details below)  I'm ready to support.  To inspire.  Are you coming?

    Deepening the conversation - a Podcast, a video, a new pilot program!

    Hi all, Pete here once again....

    I’ve always had a desire to go to the deep stuff in life’s conversations.  Asking the big questions, “Why am here?”  “Who am I?”  “What is my life for, what is the purpose of it all?”  Rather than shy away from these questions, many people are intrigued and even are excited when someone else is asking the same questions.  Yet, for most of us, we then go back to a daily life nearly void of the wisdom gained by asking such questions.  Well, isn’t it possible to embody both realms of experience?  Living a life that encompasses all the day-today details while simultaneously remaining connected to the deeper truths of Life itself? 


    These are not some lofty ideals available only to the spiritual devotees of yesteryears, but real-time, authentic, and easily applicable life wisdom queries ready for us to access NOW!  These seemingly lofty queries are the most natural and accessible of all human queries.  It’s not amazing learn of their usefulness, what’s amazing is that they’ve been all but removed from our modern culture or ostracized and therefore forgotten by us to be the most vital questions we may ever ask in our lifetime.

    Here's some new information about how you can join me  in the brand new offering I've created to safely and in a nurturing way begin your own deep conversation.

    How Deep Listening creates beautiful harmony anytime & with anyone.


    Hi All, Pete here again....

    Sometimes things are so close we don’t recognize them for what they are.  For me, that happens when Anne and I are singing in harmony.  I rarely think about the mechanics of harmony singing; the pitch, the phrasing, the subtleties of pronunciation and so forth.   
    I do experience something more attune to a picture in my mind of where our voices are moving together and the effect and influence it has in that moment, in that setting for that particular song.  Honestly, I’m amazed at how it seems to happen by itself sometimes!  And yet, I’m always keenly aware of how this is only possible when we both are in a state of deep listening.

    I’ve come to explain this occurrence as Deep Listening.  In my life I explain it as a state of Being, a kind of heightened awareness dedicated solely for that moment in time.  In workshops and in retreats I tell participants that it’s as if you’re listening with your entire body.  You feel the sounds and the space around you so fully that the listening becomes something of a physical act.  Thoughts usually slow down or sometimes they stop completely, yet you’re very alert and responsive to the person or situation at hand.

    It can be fascinating when you bring this Deep Listening into practice with music, you’re more aware of the subtle qualities music can take on.  This is the reason why music can help you feel better, happy or sad, contemplative or whatever.  You can actually “feel” the music and it brings on a certain “feeling” in us.  Maybe that’s why I’ve had so many people tell me the banjo just makes them feelhappy yet they don’t know why. Or when people tell us that our harmony singing makes them feel calm.

    Anytime we’re interacting with another person, we’re creating a certain harmony, whether we’re singing or not.  There’s two of us and we’re bringing our story, our song, our voice to that moment.  We are all capable of bringing a certain quality to each interaction.  Do we sing in a complimentary harmony or are we competing for the soundscape?  Do we bring Deep Listening or is there so much going on in our own heads we can’t hear or feel the other person?

    I try to bring Deep Listening into every conversation and interaction I can.  Sometimes it comes in easily, like singing with Anne, and with deep satisfaction and other times, not so much ;-)  But hey, I’ve been singing harmony with Anne for 20 years and I’m still learning how my voice can sing!

    Let me know how you experience Deep Listening and how easily or not you can bring it into your everyday conversations.
