I must admit, I’ve been enamored with Rumi ever since I began my spiritual journey, or took my first step down the cobblestoned road to spirituality.

And so meeting a Rumi expert, and one so heart-opened, and alive as Kalma K. Kapur was such a special treat. We bonded, and shared from the heart, and she took me on such a special journey with her stories.

I am completely smitten with this interview, how expansive it is, how it makes me feel, and the joy and courage for life I’ve gained from Kalma, from her courage, and for the lessons from Rumi she shares.

Live isn’t all easy, nor was it meant to be…it’s a profound and important message from Rumi. For if we truly understand our greatness, our connectedness, and how our challenges are here to help us and to serve us, it truly changes everything!!!

I hope you enjoy this interview, and the amazing Kalma K. Kapur, as much as I did.

Enjoy and Shine Bright!!!

90 seconds can change your life!!!

It's rare that an individual comes along that breaks the entire paradigm in a field, and does it so cleanly and eloquently as Dr. Joan Rosenberg has done.

This interview blew me away in how one simple technique, aptly named (by her colleague, not her) the 90 second Rosenberg Reset can help you wade through the wave of your emotions, and come out the other side.

If you want to understand your emotions, and be able to ride the waves without being taken under, then this interview, with such a brilliant author is for you.

She'll help you take back control of your emotions, or what happens after the emotional wave. 

It'll help you be happier, help improve your relationships, and most importantly help you understand why you do what you do, and why those around you do so as well.

I'm so glad I had Joan on the show, and know it'll improve my response to my own emotions, my relationship with my wife Jessica, and likely help you with your emotions as well :O).

Enjoy and Shine Bright!!!
