Wishing you the Best 2010

… with better decisions and perfect timing!

Here’s to 2010 … may it be a year of social and spiritual progress for you! I’m writing to congratulate you on making it through another year and to share some exciting developments in this new phase of my life — which involves interviewing profound cultural leaders, writing books, running a non–profit, and lots of travel to discover new sources of illumination.

After I sold in 2007, I set up the new educational non-profit Divination Foundation (DF) to explore, develop and promote “spiritual technologies” for the 21st century. Since launching its website, we have added new articles, blogs, videos, podcasts and more … and there’s something new every week. (I also continue to contribute blogs and articles to


A friend once remarked that I have a face for radio, despite an Irish-Polack being a delicacy in remote parts of Asia 😉 Be that as it may, in an effort to provide engaging educational content, DF co-directors Jewel Mlnarik and Nayana Jennings insist on producing short videos of yours truly. These 3-minute videos are kind of a cross between a fireside chat, a memoir, and the beginnings of an inspirational keynote. The first two are already available on “Discovering the I Ching” and “Our Decision-Making Crisis.” They are fun and sometimes funny and more are in the works.

Pathways Radio — Now Podcast!

This year my stint as host of the Pathways Radio program on KBOO celebrates 26 years of being on the airwaves in Oregon. I never imagined the show would last this long, and now in the 21st century, provides all my interviews of cultural leaders to a worldwide audience any time you want. We recently posted our 100th episode and Jewel set up a nice index so that you can browse to find the ones of interested to you, and hear profound conversations with spiritual and cultural leaders such as Deepak Chopra, Leonard Schlain, and John Gray, as well as lesser-known but equally thought-provoking guests from all over the world. In fact, you can now subscribe to the show and receive these fascinating conversations as soon as they are available … you can even get them (free) via iTunes!

Fresh New Look

In addition to the videos, Jewel and Nayana have been busy upgrading the site design and layout — to provide better access to all this specialized content, as well as a fresh new look. We’d love to hear your thoughts on the new design and what might like to see in 2010!

Here’s to better living through enlightened decision making!
