As some of you may have already gathered, my journey here in Asia has increasingly focused on what is called ‘mysticism’ by some, and quantum physics by others. Chi, prana, kundalini, chakras, universal energy, zero-point energy, etc. The words (and the traditions from which they derive) are less important to me than the underlying phenomena … Continue reading
My short story, “Bali Magic”, is one of five finalists in the Bali-High.com community blog contest. Bali Magic “Michael!!” she screamed as I parked my bike at the warung restaurant. What the hell?? I had never been to this village before or even to this part of Bali. I was staying at an eco-luxury resort down … Continue reading
A taste of my past week here in Indonesia: Research: Digging in deeper into my research about profound manifestations of ‘energy’ (chi, kundalini, prana, mystical – the names matter much less than the phenomena themselves and related implications), developing a database of people around the world with X-Men type abilities, and exploring similarities and dissimilarities from … Continue reading
Joel – artist, filmmaker, friend – just finished this fabulous 15-minute video of Balinese ceremonies, rituals and processions.

Shortly before I left Bali – I’m not going to say much about my two months there, cuz even my friends are starting to look at me with murderous eyes - I caught wind that Michael Franti had opened a yoga retreat in the village of Ubud. Turns out Franti is a geek for Geckos. Who … Continue reading
Check out my latest article – about the remarkable Ms. Nila Wati, her ‘Sari Organic’ farm and wonderful restaurant.
Scuba diving near Bali is fantastic, and while researching related environmental issues (coral bleaching, over-fishing, etc), I met many hard-working individuals in NGOs and small businesses doing incredible work. Today, my article about a few of these people was published, and I hope I´ve done justice to their stories, to their efforts. There are actually three … Continue reading
