My Brothers and Sisters,


I trust that you have been able to take some time and enjoy this season with friends and family a little. It seems that is what summers are partly for; coming out, meeting up with friends and family members. Reuniting with ones we haven't spent time with in a while, going on hikes, barbeques, going to the beach, riding bikes, folk festivals, etc.


Humans have been doing it for centuries. After the long winter, gathering with's not new. Maybe we do things a little differently now then how our great ancestors did them, but it's not much more different. favorite season is coming to an end. It's been a strange summer here in the Northeast; an early start, then stop, then there was this wave of unusual humidity and high temperatures at the same time. And now in August I feel like I'm in Maine, rather then Westchester NY. Cool evenings and cool mornings, already. Not that I mind; it's just unusual.


So as the summer starts to come to an end, I encourage you to do something to make this summer a memorable one. You're not going to see it again.


In my main newsletter article this month, I write about feelings and being judgmental. I hope you take a moment and read about it and share your thoughts on it. I am not a professional on these topics; just another traveler on the road sharing my experiences and insights with friends and loved ones.


Peace and Love.




Feelings and Being Judgmental    

This can be a touchy pun intended.


This month I'd like to share with you my thoughts on feelings and making judgments.


Over the years, I have heard different instructions concerning feelings. You should have control of them or you're not at peace if you have feelings of anger. Another one is feelings aren't facts or for those who are alcoholics, it is said that we have to be free of anger.


Feelings are a part of us. They can act as a barometer. Ignoring them or trying to stuff them can be as dangerous as having them spill out all over the place.


The question is: Do we have feelings or do our feeling have us?


As far as being judgmental, in today's world it's like you're a bad person if you are judgmental. Again, being judgmental is necessary and will help you and your loved ones.  I hope that a young adult makes a judgment call when a friend is intoxicated and doesn't get into the car with them (and, in fact, also tries to prevent the intoxicated friend from getting behind the wheel).


Being judgmental can be a very good thing depending, like everything in life, on how it is used. I will share additional thoughts on Feelings and Being Judgmental in the Ah-Man Blogs this month.





Spiritual Recovery is all-inclusive and non-sectarian; available to any man or woman, regardless of age. It happens when someone is reconnected to Spirit, allowing one to begin to see things from a different perspective. There's usually a common thread that brings one to seek Spiritual Recovery. That thread is pain: physical, mental or emotional.   On rare occasions, it can be a joyous or spectacular life event that brings one to Spiritual Recovery. But in most cases, it will be life's painful events that we explore.


Let Michael's vast experience guide you in learning how to enrich your journey to Spiritual Recovery during upcoming half-day Spiritual Recovery Retreats.  


Whether you're a neophyte beginning a new relationship with your Inner Self or you've already had a Spiritual Awakening/Divine Experience, you'll want to deepen and enhance your experience.


Below is a listing of retreat dates, times and venues. Each session is scheduled for a Saturday from 10am to 2pm. The fee is $25 per person.
