In his book, Back to Sanity, Steve Taylor focuses on cognitive discord that he refers to as mind chatter. According to Taylor, human minds have two focuses – the inside and the outside.

When our minds are disengaged, mind chatter begins. For the most part it involves absorption in negative thoughts and negative energy patterns that drain our mental energy and cause anxiety and frustration.Read More

In the process we can create and improve well-paying jobs that can ultimately benefit the economy as a whole and in the process increase our GDPRead More
Before we can enter into a knowledgeable balanced discussion on how to improve our world, we have to take a step back and acknowledge and limit the effects of our biases. The key is to know ourselves and develop our intrapersonal intelligence.Read More
Those of us who have called the Sound home have come to enjoy the peace and quiet of the forest, the majesty of the mountains that are just a few kilometers away, and of course the ever-present sea. Some of us find spiritual sanctuary here believing it is a vortex of creative thought and spiritual growth. The Sound is home to the arts: drama, music, fine arts, crafts, as well as published writers on both Denman Island and Vancouver Island. Baynes Sound has been the perfect place for me to spend my retirement. I live here in harmony with my Self, ever mindful of and grateful for the healing power of nature.Read More
