We’ve been so deep in ideas and philosophy on this blog lately that I haven’t done a personal update for ages. I did promise the blog would be more fun and more personal this year.
Just letting you all know that I’ve taken a break from blogging over Easter. We have been very busy with social engagements (i.e. going to the beach!), and the fact is I work 7 days a week, between my day jobs and RPT, so it’s great to take a break.
I know people forget that I have a day job since I’m just associated (on this blog) with RPT. Actually the brilliant Valeria Moore (author of Healer Wisdom) is the general manager of RPT. She’s the only full time person working in RPT and it wouldn’t exist without her. Evette’s full time job is writing, she recently finished writing her book New Stepping Stones about healing abuse. It is being edited. She’s currently working on a huge encyclopedia of healing, Metaphysical Anatomy. That could take a long time – it’s an unlimited topic. I think in practice it will come out next year and be fully revised every year or two.
I don’t have 1 full time job, it’s more like I keep myself busy 15 hours a day. Things that I’m passionate about include corporate and strategic consulting, life coaching (using RPT tools), tax structuring, legal risk management, outsourcing, productivity tools, and I love gadgets. I can help clients restructure their business so they minimize risk, don’t pay more tax than they have to, etc.
One thing that I love is helping people to find their freedom, as I wrote about in a set of articles last month. For instance it is much easier to quit your job and move to a different country than you think. I help people navigate through a range of issues – so they know they can still earn money, live well, send kids to school, etc, from just about anywhere in the world.
I used to be a full time healing teacher/practitioner and I felt like my left-brain (legal side) was atrophying. It’s fun now to get a good left-right brain balance.
Back to Vanuatu news – my father and step-mother arrive from Australia on Sunday. These are our first international visitors to see the house and garden, and I look forward to playing tour guide and showing them some sights I haven’t seen yet. I have a list of great snorkeling and diving spots to explore.
Evette and I are really excited to be going to Russia in only 2 weeks time! As you probably know we are teaching in Moscow and Kiev. We are also visiting Budapest to explore my roots (my mother’s family is Hungarian – my dad’s is Polish). One of our students in the USA is helping us to connect with some doctors in Budapest who are interested in our work and will hopefully promote some courses there.
We fly back via Singapore and Australia – hopefully a chance for some shopping. I love buying gadgets (iPad anyone?) and could probably do with some new shirts. As much as I love Vanuatu, there’s one thing we don’t have is shopping. There are no malls, and just one small strip aimed at cruise shop tourists. I figure that we actually save a fortune – I mean you don’t really need much here, some shorts and some flip flops is all I wear and t-shirts if the humidity drops a bit. I have a wardrobe full of shirts and trousers and really crazy stuff like shoes and socks, which I can only wear when we are teaching abroad!
I’ll be a bit busy this week with dad here, but I promise I’ll make the time to finish the current set of blog articles on causation. I have lots of research to do – this is one topic I can’t just do off the top of my head. It will get done.
Well, it’s been great doing a personal update for a change. Don’t hesitate to remind me to update you all when I’ve been stuck in my philosophy mode for too long!
Oh one other thing I thought I might mention because I value your feedback: I was thinking about adding a product review section to this blog. It could be healing tools, supplements, books etc, but it will probably be gadgets because that’s what I love! If you would be interested in me writing occasional short articles about really cool toys / products I find, let me know. Also feel free to send ideas for things to check out. We get lots of emails about healing tools, products, courses and we do check out lots of them, and sometimes they are really great.
OK back to the garden!
