I've always been big into giving.  I'm pretty sure it's because my Mother always did a good job of instilling those mantras and verses in me: "It's better to give than receive," and "The Lord loves a cheerful giver."  I was always giving notes, presents or food to my classmates, relatives, neighbors and friends.  And back then, it probably wasn't a bad quality to have. Into adulthood, my giving took on a compulsive quality.  I once gave my babysitter my entire...

I’ve been massaged, hot-tubbed, de-stressed and serenaded by a Rumi poet.  As I sit in a lounge chair, wrapped in a fluffy robe, gazing out over the Pacific, the birthday bliss sinks in, and I ask, “When can I move in?” And some people do like Esalen so much, they stay.  If you have a preconceived notion of what Esalen is, Hot springs where clothing is optional?, asked with raised eyebrows, then think again.  This one-of-a kind retreat center, hugging a...

Thanks to some dear and generous friends, I recently wound up knee-deep in the Mayan Riviera.  The New York Times calls Tulum, "a hot spot for yoga tourists."  Part bohemian and part eco-friendly chic, this laid back paradise was the perfect spot to...

As I witnessed the death of my pool pump today, I couldn’t help but reflect on 2010: the year of births and deaths.  Truly, a year with such magnificence, aliveness, heartache and brilliance deserves a year-end reflection to bookmark it. My dear friend and business partner, Laura Pitari, and I kicked off 2010 at a party that would truly set the tone for the year: a year to be remembered (for better or worse).  As I gazed around the Chateau Marmont...

[caption id="attachment_64" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="Deepak Chopra and Patrick Flannagan"][/caption] What do you get when you put 350 of your closest meditating friends in an awe-inspiring setting called The Enchantment Resort in Sedona? Add in daily hikes and outdoor yoga sessions amidst the majestic red rocks and wise teachings by Deepak Chopra. The Chopra Center calls this "Seduction of Spirit," one of their signature meditation retreats. I had the privilege of attending this spiritual retreat a couple of weeks...

People are always asking me how to pitch a story to the press. Should they send press releases, pitches, books, marketing materials? Through the years, my reporter friends have taught me to ask two simple questions: 1) What's the story? 2) Is it newsworthy? Here is the Associated Press planning editor Jon Resnick and Associated Press Editor Donna Cassata on how to pitch a news story: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vut4gPPzEac ...
