There is a Better Way
Enter the Urban Monk. I was a Taoist monk who studied with masters of pretty much every tradition out there and was an acetic- meaning I had renounced the world and was off contemplating life in the Himalayas. I realized the world was getting worse while my fellow monks and I were tucked away in monasteries so I decided to come down and take on a regular life again. The place I could make a difference was down here.
It wasn’t easy to make the switch.
Having a job, bills, dogs, kids, and daily stressors really challenged me to make the systems I was trained in work for people down here...people living in the trenches of society. I had to find that balance in my own life- running a medical group and then becoming a best selling author and filmmaker. I’m no stranger to bills and deadlines. I started with zero dollars and had to figure out the “work thing” on my own. Over the years, I figured out how to find work-life balance for myself and thousands of patients and students in my communities.
I call it the “Life Garden” system and it’s a framework designed to help you map out your priorities and water the most important plants first. This way, you’re moving forward with your life- your health, your family relations, your career, and yes, your dreams. Yes, you deserve to live the life of your dreams. The world brow beats us into settling for a job and living a life of mediocrity. That’s such a waste of this gift called life. I’ll help you break free of that silly trance and step into your potential.
