Stephen has graduate degrees from Harvard, Antioch, and University of Massachusetts. His doctorate from the University of Massachusetts is in Aesthetics in Education – how to teach anything through art, music, drama, and movement. To create greater impact and raise the fun quotient in teams and large groups, he has applied these media in business settings for more than 35 years.
He is particularly interested in the intersection between business performance, psychology, and mind/body disciplines. He has practiced daily various mind-body disciplines for 49 years (tai chi, qigong, aikido, meditation). He says one more year and the universe will give him a merit badge (not redeemable at Starbucks for coffee). He has played classical guitar for 50+ years and now he’s moving toward jazz. He composed and published an album of songs (Songs of Lao Tzu). He is the coauthor of Leadership Agility and the author of Dragons at Work.
Through his pieces at Eusophi he hopes to help you achieve greater levels of performance, wisdom, and ultimately happiness than you ever thought possible!
My Top 5
Zen Master Genpo Roshi uses a beautiful process called Big Mind, Big Heart to work with emotions. Our inner monologue is often made up of many different characters, and understanding their conflicting wants and desires can help us achieve a greater sense of wholeness.
This is a good time to adjust our disposition toward life and move from worrier to warrior.
Sometimes it’s easy to ignore all the wonder and opportunity around us in favor of being trapped in a tiny prison of our wants.
By refusing to release our prizes, those small desires and obsessions that can make up much of life, we ultimately become trapped by them.
This is a process for setting the direction and creating a path to a wondrous future.
