The views of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have changed as our culture has evolved. Here she formally announces her support of same-sex marriage in a video released by the Human Rights Campaign last month.
Spring is upon us, and growth is in the air!
In addition to having an abundance of freshly-launched goodness we're blessed to share with the world, such as the Spring of Sustainability now underway to the Inspiring Women Summit starting Saturday, our team had the opportunity to come together, celebrate our first 3 years and plan for the next 37.
That's right, we did some visioning into what our company looks like in the year 2050, at the tail end of any of our active careers. Opening our minds to our potential legacy was illuminating and energizing. I found it liberating to dream into how much blessing, healing, awakening, and societal change work we could have helped catalyze by then . . . [read more]
Your Brain Is the Universe (Part 2) By Deepak Chopra
We all take the physical world for granted, with no doubt that it will still be here when we wake up tomorrow morning.

Pride Over the Prospect of Full Gay Equality By Byron Belitsos, Managing Editor
I join Stephen in being thrilled to see American culture—and many other countries—so quickly move forward to full equality for gay people, including marriage rights. As a long-time resident of the San Francisco area, I've closely watched as this issue has evolved. I was around when Harvey Milk, one of the first "out" politicians, was still alive and serving. I mourned as the ordeal of AIDS sweep through the gay community here, but rejoiced much later as couples were able to marry on the steps of City Hall. Stevee Postman, TSN's graphics artist, captures the present moment: "I marched at my first gay pride parade over 30 years ago, and I can't even express the depth of feeling I have to see how far we've come. We are at a huge turning point. Hopefully my partner Ryan and I will have the same rights as non-gay Americans in the near future."
This last week I had the opportunity to see former Washington state congresswoman Linda Smith, speak at a community event. Linda is now an anti-sex trafficking advocate.
