    People Think I’m a Robot… (excerpt from The Nine Keys)

     This is an excerpt from “The Nine Keys” Sandy, Investigator (5) formerly married in a 6-year relationship with Marco, Investigator (5) “People think I’m a robot underneath, but I’m really more like a nebula. I am always trying to understand the structure of my nature, but I know that the human suit I’ve been assigned to contextualize my shape is wrong. That feeling of discrepancy eats at me to the core. From a young age, I felt at odds with the people around me– my schoolmates, neighbors, and so forth. When I was really young, I’d climb up on the counter and push the medicine cabinet mirror towards the main…

    The Tuna Incident…(excerpt from The Nine Keys)

     The following is an excerpt from “The Nine Keys” Charlotte, Leader (8) married in a 20-year relationship with Oliver, Helper (2) “We were 26 years old when we met and each going through difficult times. His kindness, softness and tenderness, despite my constant resistance, was what won my heart… He knew somehow that my hard shell was just that, a shell. He saw through it whereas other people didn’t. Or others saw it, decided they could not break it and walked away. He was persistent. And that won me over. Somehow I felt he passed the test. My husband is stable, reliable, self-sacrificing and wants the best for his family.…

    How Airbnb Will Restore Your Faith in Humanity

    When I was the CFO of a venture capital firm in San Francisco, one of the managing partners was a Rhodes Scholar. I remember him talking about the scholarship program and how the goal was for the potential “future world leaders” to go to school together. The idea was they would get to know each other from an early age, and the result would be that these relationships would lead to a more peaceful world. While I will never be a Rhodes Scholar, I have recently found another, and potentially faster, path to world peace—Airbnb. 🙂   Earlier this year, I became an Airbnb host. My goal was not a…

    Kundalini Yoga as the Key to Unlocking the Power of the Enneagram

    I became a Kundalini Yoga teacher as the unintended consequence of a relationship breakup. I first started taking Kundalini Yoga classes to get through that difficult period and a year later, I enrolled in Kundalini Yoga teacher training “just to learn more.” That was 9 years ago, and I’ve since changed my life completely, moving from San Francisco, California to Athens, Greece and trading a 20+ year career as a CPA and finance consultant to teach a combination of Kundalini Yoga and the Enneagram. Along the way, I’ve become more and more convinced that Kundalini Yoga is the key to unlock the true power of the Enneagram. I’ve also become…
