WORKING WITH JOE

My work is all about understanding one’s self and encouraging authentic expression. Much of the self work available today is either about transcendence or how to go about getting what you want. It is like we have been given only two choices: you can be spiritual and live at peace or you can live an outward life that is appealing.

I take apart this assumption. My tools give a felt sense of how the outward expression of life, from business to relationship, can be used for powerful spiritual awakenings. These tools also allow us to be more effective and fulfilled in our actions.

On the other side of this assumption, I nurture the natural expression of a self-realizing life. To understand how we are one with the universe is not the end of the journey. In fact, an unrelenting focus on achieving or maintaining this realization can be a form of ignorance and suffering. Once we know what being one is, then we are drawn to knowing how oneness does. How do we work from oneness, start businesses from oneness, be married in oneness, create community in oneness, and parent from oneness?

My work is very loving and very fierce. Everyone’s sense of safety and respect is always a priority, since these are the keys to growth and healing. At the same time, every belief and action we hold dear to us is open for questioning, as these are often the barriers to that same growth and healing. My approach combines the journey of self-realization and the journey of a potent life. Living in authenticity allows us to know ourselves deeply and act with power and vulnerability.
