Dear Friends and Readers,

       Namaste and Thank you for visiting my web site.  2011 is off to a very exciting start for my wife Gabriele and I, as we have bought a new home!  We will be offering extended weekend workshops for small groups, families and couples as our new home has an extra guest room and workshop area.  It is located in Hidden Valley Lake, just northeast of Harbin Hot Springs in Lake County.

        During 2011, I will be putting more time and energy into finishing the series of DVDs that we started almost a year ago!  THE ART OF COMPASSIONATE COMMUNICATION features very specific DVDs for special interests and needs.  I would like to encourage ALL OF YOU to purchase the first DVD:  "THE ESSENTIAL TOOLS AND FOUNDATIONS".  This DVD will remind you of the basic practices that can improve ALL OF OUR RELATIONSHIPS!  It comes with a study guide, including several worksheets and lists of FEELINGS, NEEDS and ADJUSTMENTS.

        2011 will also include travel to new cities, as well as many of the locations that I have previously visited,  The schedule will include trips to Southern California (3-6 times a year), ,the Midwest (2-3 visits) and Europe (1-2 visits).  I am also planning my first trip (as "Love Coach Scott") to Florida (March),  and a return to the Hawaiian Islands (early 2011).  Please visit my CALENDAR page for specifics.  

        For those of you in the San Francisco Bay Area, I will continue to teach once or twice a month in Marin AND occasionally in other parts of the Bay Area.  When Gabriele and I are at home, we teach a weekly class on  Sundays at Harbin Hot Springs.  When we are traveling, the class is led by qualified friends such as Donny Regal, Lakshmi Devi, Christy Michaels or Lakshmi Devi.

        If you are interested in hosting a class or workshop, please contact me via e-mail at and put something PERSONAL into the subject line.  Thank you!

        Gabriele and I are wishing you all the best that life has to, tomorrow and always!

with Care and Best Wishes Always, Scott 

Our plans for March, 2010

         Aloha!  I have just completed an extraordinary week in Louisville, Kentucky.  This was my fifth visit to this beautiful community in the past 12 months.  The community of people that come to my events have deeply touched my heart.  They are primarily hard working people, mostly in their 30's.  They have full time jobs, children, spouses and challenging issues.  Despite carrying so many responsibilities, they are humbly devoted to self improvement.  They have embraced the tools that I offer in dynamic ways.  Many report that their lives have transformed due to Compassionate Communication.  I am grateful for their devotion to their families and to self improvement.  I love coming here, and seeing the changes and meeting old and new friends.
         As I look ahead to March of 2010, there are several exciting developments.  My beloved Wife Gabriele will be having her first "Poetry" evening in the temple at Harbin Hot Springs on Friday Night, March 5th.  Joining us for the weekend is the magical muse Angelika, who will play music on March 5th, and then collaborate with me on Saturday, March 6th for an afternoon of ONENESS at the Sunrise Center in Corte Madera.  On Sunday, March 7th, we are celebrating our Wedding Anniversary with a party that will also include the Academy Awards.
         During March, I will be working with my wonderful support team of Banyan Theo, Gena Galenski and Donnie Regal to kick start our tv series:  Keep your eyes out for details.   Later in the month, my dear friend and another Magical Muse Kataka Gara will be coming up to the Bay Area to join me for a series of events.  We will be giving presentations & concerts in Santa Cruz (3/19), San Jose (3/20), Harbin Hot Springs (3/21 and/or 3/28), San Rafael (3/26), San Francisco (3/27) and Sebastapol/Sonoma (TBA).  
          I look forward to my next connection with you.....virtually OR in person!

It's Great to be back in California!

Dear Friends,
         Namaste.  My wife Gabriele and I enjoyed a wonderful four weeks in Thailand & Cambodia.  It was a time of deep cleansing, relaxation, exercise and reflection.  2010 looks to be a very full year for us, as we travel throughout the U.S., Europe (and possibly back to Asia) sharing the tools of Compassionate Communication.  February can be a challenging month for many, as Valentine's day is the dominant holiday.  Between the mass-marketing & commercialization of "romanticized love", many are left feeling sad, lonely and disconnected.  Certainly for those who are single, it can be a challenging time.  I also have noticed that many couples also feel increased agitation, as their relationship is not living up to their own standards.  Let alone the fantasies presented in the media.  I will be offering playshops throughout California (San Diego, Los Angeles, and all over the greater Bay Area) this month.  A special theme will be how to be REAL & AUTHENTIC with your life at this time, AND how to increase the experience of genuine LOVE.  Whether you are single or in a relationship.  I hope that you can participate in one or more of these events!  Please check the calendar to see when we will be close to your area.  I also do 3-4 private sessions a day, mostly by phone or SKYPE.  If we are in the same geographic location, we can do it in person.  I love my dharma of supporting individuals AND couples to enjoy life more fully.  How can I best be of service to YOU?
