- Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel -

Remember that there is a meaning beyond absurdity.
Know that every deed counts, that every word is power.
Above all, remember that you must build your life as if it were a work of art.

Women’s March

By Jared | Mar 6, 2018

Women’s March Last year my family joined the Women’s March. I believe our only path to sustainable peace, equality, and stability is to foster a society where women and girls have just as much access and opportunity to be in positions of leadership as men and boys. I spent 5 years living in Rwanda, petitioning for gender equality…

The Gift of Mindfulness

By Jared | Mar 6, 2018

The Gift of Mindfulness Awareness and focus are the natural results of deliberately training your subconscious through the practice of mindfulness. They rarely come to us by chance.  90% of our thoughts and actions throughout the day happen subconsciously, as habits of our mind. If you want to transform your life, you have to transform…

Shine So Bright

By Jared | Mar 6, 2018

Shine So Bright Back in 2011, I wrote a short blog about called Sweet Discipline. Self-discipline has always been a source of joy rather than pain in my life. Discipline has afforded me healthier relationships, excellent physical health, and meaningful work.  I’ve long been attracted to the concept of being a monk or priest because I’m…

By Jared | Mar 6, 2018

DANDAPANI Dandapani is a Hindu monk. He lived at a cloistered monastery in Hawaii for over a decade. Now he travels the world teaching, coaching Fortune 500 exects, doing TED talks and generally continuing his journey as a Saivite Hindu priest.  I recently learned of Dandapani when I saw a video on YouTube from Wired for Wonder where he gave his Energy Alchemist…

Like any relationship, communication is the medium for connection.  I believe technology can, and should enhance our life experience. And it can certainly enhance the…

The Ineffable God

By Jared | Mar 6, 2018

The Ineffable God I’m very deliberate about not hovering over our kids or trying to control them. Rather, I want to give them the space to manifest the ineffable song that plays in their hearts.  I’ve resolved that “parents” are what we call the “chief influencers in our early development”. So my efforts go towards…

Transcending the Threat of Trump’s Cabinet

By Jared | Jan 6, 2017

I understand why people are reluctant to talk about politics, especially in the current political atmosphere. It so often fuels negativity, anger and conflict. I believe that is largely due to the nature of our President-Elect. When we speak of someone like Gandhi or Mother Teresa, emotions of peace, love, empathy and benevolence are evoked.…

I Ask for Wonder

By Jared | Aug 27, 2016

I’ve been a philanthropist and activist my whole life. It’s part of my identity. It derives from my profound love and reverence for our human existence and the gift of the magnificent cosmos in which we dwell. Over the last four years or so, my perspective on activism has evolved considerably. I wrote about that…

Let Me In

By Jared | Jun 26, 2016

Our friend Jonathan Olinger at HUMAN recently wrote and directed the latest Alicia Keys video, Let Me In. The film is a tribute to the refugee crisis around the world. There are more refugees today than at any other time in history. Half of them are children. Despite all our technical advances, the exponential growth of these…
