Goodbye. Hello.

Tonight’s a good night to release.

A decade and change ago I was a living dead person, a hollow shell of a man. In a letter my friend wrote me nearly 13 years ago tonight: “I am scared you will not be able to take more disappointment. I am just afraid of you dying Bob. Even more I am afraid of you not wanting to live.”

Tonight I am full with the love of an amazing woman, an incredible life where I get to be me and teach others how to do the same for themselves, I have a family I love deeply and find myself ever more connected to, and within my heart lies a burning sense of purpose calling me forward.

Ahead of me lies more connectedness. More openness. More love. More laughter. More peace.

Here’s to spaciousness.

Open Your Heart. Ignite Your Leadership.

The Brotherhood Community Men’s Leadership Intensive is coming up March 2-4 in Santa Cruz, CA. For the men who join us, it will be one of the most epic journeys they’ve ever experienced.
