What is your workshop “You’re Not Going Crazy…You’re Just Waking Up!” about?

It’s about how to rebuild your life after it has fallen apart. I mean any falling apart whether its minor like you lost your car or major like you lost your intimate partner or job. First why the changes are happening. They are about lessons you are trying to learn. Second how to go through the [changes] with integrity. Finally where to go after these changes. Some people go right back to the same old thing that got them into trouble in the first place. And then they have to have their lives dismantled all over again. [Instead] you can learn to connect to Spirit in a new way. You can go to a higher level of consciousness and build a new and better life from there.

What is the most challenging part of the ‘Waking Up!’ process?

There are five stages to the Soul Transformation Process. The First Stage is Dismantling. Something changes in your life. It could be a loss or a betrayal. After that the Second Stage is Emptiness. It’s like you’ve been punched in the gut. You’re in the aftermath of having lost something and you’re not even trying to sort it out yet. The Third Stage is Disorientation. It’s not, “Oh my God, my life is changing (first stage).” Or “Oh my God, what just happened (second stage)?” It’s “Oh my God, where do I go from here?”

Disorientation is the most crucial stage because it is where the choice is made to either step over the bridge into stages four and five, or stay stuck in one through three. Some people say, “I’m an intelligent person. I can figure this out myself.” That’s not what gets you over the bridge. What does is surrendering your soul to God. Remaining still and trusting and praying for guidance to take the next step. It’s a good time for counseling and life coaching to help you rebuild a new, more divine life.

That’s why Stage Four is Rebuilding and Stage Five is A New Life. These stages cannot be done on your own. They must be done with God.

What is your workshop “Enhance Intimacy in Relationships” about?

It’s about learning how to be present and intimate with ourselves and others. I’m one of the country’s primary teachers on Tantra. When I use the word Tantra, I’m not talking about the extremes of religious Tantra on the one hand and hypersexuality on the other. I teach Middle Path Tantra. That’s a spiritual Tantra where with integrity, love, and respect we learn how to be more in touch with our own bodies. And we learn how to be better intimate partners.

What do you see missing in people’s intimate relationships?

There are two things—one is internal and the other is external.

When people are not in touch with who they are they cannot be in healthy relationships. So our first responsibility is to create a healthy internal life, which means to be aware of God and ourselves. And to do our own self-healing work. If we don’t have that intact, how can we possibly bring it to others?

Then it’s about allowing our healthy internal life to bubble up to the outside in the form of honest, loving communication. And last but not least it’s about touch—literally getting in touch with each other through shoulder rubs, hugs, and random acts of kindness. When it comes to that, no matter how many books you read on sexual techniques, none of them are worth anything compared to just slowing down.

Men and women would most benefit in their intimate interactions from slowing down. Slow down and feel everything—from the most subtle kiss to your love making movements. Everybody has seen movies with hyper sex, the man ripping the woman’s clothes off and so on. It’s entertaining to our ego-based eyes but it is not Tantric. It is not deep spiritually, psychologically, or emotionally. It is nothing but an addictive behavior called stimulation.

Slowing down may seem boring to an addict of stimulation. But when you try it, you will feel things you never could have imagined. So the next time you are making love to your partner, slow down, look into their eyes, and concentrate on every sensation. Some couples who have tried this say to me, “Michael we tried it and it’s amazing. We are exploding with love and passion for each other.
