Our True Way Is Nature’s Way

Sometimes, I am nearly awed at the coming together of events in that way Carl Jung describes as “synchronicity.” For the past six months, once again, I have been preparing to travel to India to teach a leadership course in Kerala in December. Last year, when I went to India for the first time, Continue reading
