Conscious Leaders are more than just competent business or religious leaders. They are leaders deeply connected to themselves, to others, and to this world. They know the interconnectedness of all things and, as a consequence, they seek to lead from this profound awareness. As a conscious leadership coach and spiritual teacher himself, Dr. Steve McSwain guides leaders and professional people, companies and faith-based organizations in learning and living by the leadership laws of success. One-on-one and group coaching is available. For more information on Steve McSwain’s conscious leadership coaching programs, CLICK HERE

Dr. Steve McSwain’s The Enoch Factor is an award-winning book, having been named one of two finalists for “Most Inspirational Book of the Year-2011″ in the IndieBook Awards at the Global Book Expo (NYC).
It has been described as “a candid memoir” on how misguided religion can become and what can be done to restore a vital religious or spiritual life.
It calls for an end to religious dogmatism and narrow-mindedness and the consequential crisis of faith that is driving millions to question lifelong beliefs, change religions, or abandon religion altogether.
The Giving Myths makes the compelling case that the highest purpose of human existence is to give yourself away and generously share your abundance with the world.
Being generous isn’t the way to happiness, it is happiness.
The life you’ve always wanted cannot be found in things such as career, relationships, personal achievements, or, as Steve McSwain puts it, “…in your trials, tragedies, trophies or triumphs. It is found instead in learning the skill of getting outside of yourself and freely giving yourself away in the service of others. The Giving Myths shows readers how.

Divine Consciousness: What Being Saved is Really All About What does “being saved” really mean? I am sometimes asked, “You frequently use the words ‘conscious’ or ‘Divine consciousness’ or ‘higher states of consciousness’ and, sometimes, ‘awake’ or ‘awakening’. What do you mean by these words?” What I mean by “Divine consciousness,” or any of these […]
Given the title to Gushee’s newest book, Changing Our Mind: A Call from America’s Leading Evangelical Ethics Scholar for Full Acceptance of LGBT Christians in the Church, you might think that the distinguished and conservative Christian ethics theologian David P.

Leadership I know many people just assume that I am a lost liberal and, while my personal theology might be so described, you might be surprised to know I actually voted for Bush. I’m not at all proud to admit that today, which explains why I voted for Obama twice. That was because, however, I […]
Mark Nepo is beautiful in his devotional today… “Believing is all a child does for a living…” As a child I used to talk to things–birds that flew overhead, trees that swayed slowly in the night, even stones drying in the sun. For years, though, I stopped doing this freely because of what others might […]
Want to live a better life in the new year? I can think of many things our world needs. I can think of few things the world needs more, however, than this: better people living better lives in a world gone very wrong. “What is a better life?” you ask. 1. A Better Life is Life […]
I hear voices in my head. I hear one voice in my heart. But I live mostly in my head, you see. You probably do, too… …if you’re telling the truth. From the moment I wake up in the morning, the voices in my head begin. One voice tells me what I must do that […]
I cannot help but smile when I hear people talk about “orthodox” Christianity. Do they even know what they mean when they say this? Or when they question something by asking, “Is this Orthodox Christianity?” Orthodox Christianity: What Do People Mean? I have doubts whether they do. What I am sure about, however, is that […]
“Seek first the kingdom,” counseled Jesus, “…and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33). When I read these words, I have several questions. 1. What is the Kingdom? 2. Why should the Kingdom be sought? 3. If I were so inclined, where would I seek the Kingdom? 4. What “things shall be […]
