Welcome! This website and blog are dedicated to pioneering on the frontiers of human emergence. Courageous men and women who are seeking breakthroughs in awareness will find here a place to examine, learn and exchange experiences. The subject is poise, the seeker’s highest state of consciousness. I hope our time together will be challenging, provocative, and exciting as we leave the ordinary life behind and move to a vibrant life of joy and practical advantage.
Serving others is our life purpose, Martin Luther King taught us. I used to believe it and repeated that moral position to leaders in my coaching work, even though serving others never felt like my own primary purpose, I recognize now. Serving others seemed, at the […]
A couple of evenings ago, sitting on our west-facing deck just after sunset, I stopped the world for a while. I used a trick that I invented–well, stumbled onto– and I’m delighted to report that it works. Stopping the world is stopping thinking, a state of consciousness in which you have brought your mind […]
“You are something that the whole universe is doing in the same way that a wave is something the ocean is doing.” Eckhart Tolle (quoting Alan Watts) We all seem to have some narcissism, so we like to look in the mirror. We probably have quite a few mirrors in our house, and lots […]

Professional and Reader Reviews of Poise: A Warrior’s Guide
Five Stars This book is a gem! Katie Kaites
Five Stars It is nothing short of an invitation to a new life. For the religious among us it is the experience of death and resurrection. For the secular among us it is the process of claiming one's full potential. For those in recovery it is the daily decision to live the 12 steps as the spiritual path toward sobriety. The book zeroes in on the discipline required to identify and root out self-pity, the nemesis of a deep and connected life. The author invites us to confront our demons - pride, anger, rigidity, fear - all couched comfortably in self-pity, in order to rise like the phoenix from the ashes to engage our loved ones and the world in a full and loving way….All you warriors out there, read, mark, learn and inwardly digest this book. Then prepare to change the world as you are changed! Jeff Paul
