Free Discussion Groups in Southern California: Seriously Playing with New Life Management Options

During September and the early part of October, 2016, I will be facilitating group discussions in Southern California on very uncommonly expressed perspectives on living life more powerfully.  The point is spiritual empowerment, not the kind that has to do with how much money you have in the bank, how many sexual partners or how much stuff you have so that you can impress other people or feel artificially better about yourself.

Some of the basically insane or misguided things that sports figures and fans say or do are WTF moments.  We bring these up here for you to play with, not as an opportunity to denigrate anybody.  So the personal names of the people involved will generally not be included in this series if they are still living. The Sports WTF series posts will be generally brief and will often include questions you can ask yourself about what fits for you in your life.                                           art by Thomas Jordan This Week’s Sports WTF This first Sports WTF comes from the world of college basketball, which will complete its annual “March Madness” championship tournament this week.
