Larry Crane Release Technique Retreat & Live Class Reviews

December 9, 2009 Release Technique

Hey guys, I’ve finally signed up for the Release Technique retreat for Dec 26, 2009 to Jan 1, 2010.  I’ve thought about the 7-day retreat for a while, and there was a number of reasons not to go.  It is a little expensive, and does take a whole week out of your work schedule.  Luckily [...]

Update on “Huge in a Hurry” Workout/Diet

December 7, 2009 Uncategorized

Hey guys, I see some differences in physique from the new workout/diet already, but no real numbers to speak of yet. I’m still about 170lbs with a 15-16% bodyfat.  What’s more interesting for me to write about is the challenges of sticking to the habits and restrictions of this endeavor.  I’ll go into some of [...]

Are Desires and Attachments Bad?

December 1, 2009 Uncategorized

There’s a bit of a paradox in the self-help and spiritual communities. We want to improve our lives, gain wealth, improve relationships, and perfect our bodies.  At the same time we quote Buddha all the time and talk of “letting go” of desires and attachments. Are we being self contradictory?  Are we just using the [...]

Journey of 1000 Steps

November 19, 2009 Uncategorized

I started a new workout program a couple weeks ago called “Huge in a Hurry,” by Chad Waterbury.  People love the title.  Catchy, yet a little ridiculous.  It’s going pretty well, and I already have seen some muscle gains and some fat loss. Right now I’m pursuing the ever elusive six-pack.  You know, abs that [...]

Radical Humility

November 4, 2009 Self-Development

This week, I was listening to Dr. Wayne W. Dyer’s, “Secrets of the Power of Intention.”  I’m a big fan of Wayne Dyer, both of his books and speeches.  For the past ten years, whenever he has a new book release, he’s recorded an audio of it in two formats.  You can either get it [...]

The Importance of an Accountability Partner

November 3, 2009 Release Technique

When I first got the Goals & Resistance course (by the Release Technique), one of the requirements was to have a partner the whole way through.  You’d talk to this person every day to make sure you’re doing the exercises and staying on your path.

Are Your Blinders On?

October 29, 2009 Money & Careers

You meet some interesting people at the gym at 1:00 AM. I was on the exercise bike when someone a few bikes away started up a conversation.  He said, “You ever notice the girls at the gym are all teases?  They check you out and give you the eye, but when you finally go up [...]

Would You Have Left the James Ray ‘Sweat Lodge?’

October 27, 2009 Self-Development

Well, would you? It’s a question I keep asking myself since the news came out about the James Arthur Ray “Sweat Lodge” event.  See this post for details on what happened. It’s easy for us to say, “Those people who died were idiots, I would have left once people started getting sick and throwing up.” [...]

Inglourious Basterds Review – Must See Film

October 26, 2009 Movie Reviews and Inspirations

I’ve thought long and hard how I can give a meaningful review of this movie without giving away plot points, and have decided it’s impossible.  You want my quick review? Definitely go see it.  It’s an uncommon movie that covers certain ground with more depth than anyone before.  It’s superb, and a required viewing for [...]
