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.

Storms: Navigating Life’s Storms

I’m thinking about those times in life when the doubts of faith are many and the difficulties of life are manifold. Thank God, on the sailing journey of life, those times are few. Do you remember that time when Simon Peter and the other disciples were sailing on the Sea of Galilee (Matt 14)? Suddenly, […]

Follow Jesus: Three Reasons to Do So

Why follow Jesus? Or, what does it mean to follow Jesus? This morning, I opened the Gospel of John to the sixth chapter, desiring to read and reflect on what has become my favorite Gospel account of the life of Jesus. I did not get very far in the text, however, before I stumbled over […]

Religions: How to Love Them All and Be IN LOVE with Yours

The Parliament of World Religions I’ll be attending and presenting at the upcoming Parliament of World Religions meeting this year in Salt Lake City, October 15 – 18, 2015.

Knowing God: How to Know God

Knowing God: Is it Possible? There is no religious belief that, once you know it or say you believe it, will magically unlock the door to God. So, I would advise you to remember this: the impulse you feel to know God…that impulse IS God.  But, having said that, don’t get too attached even to […]

The Stuff I Was Raised to Believe and What I Believe Today – Part One

Like many of you reading this, I was raised to believe many religious things. Much of that stuff, however, I no longer believe today. Make no mistake, I’m still a believer. And, what I believe today is very important to me. But what I believe has been and continues to be subjected to rigorous questioning […]

Spiritual Growth: How Does It Happen?

For your faith to remain vital you must question it, then affirm it, and then let it die. Spiritual Growth Then, you repeat the process. Do not be discouraged by this cycle of birth and death. Every death makes possible the birth of something grander, even more glorious. Death and resurrection is only a one […]

Christianity Isn’t in Trouble: Churches Are in Trouble

Below, I’ve reprinted an article that recently appeared in the Religion News Service. The link below will take you directly to an article worth reading. (RNS) Let’s be clear: The much-heralded “decline of Christianity in America” isn’t about God losing faith in humankind. It isn’t about losing our moral compass thanks to whatever you happen […]
