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.

Experiencing God… Not far from our home here in Louisville is Gethsemane, the monastery where the monk and spiritual teacher Fr. Thomas Merton spent his final years. One day, a younger monk approached his mentor, frustrated at what seemed to him to be an impossible task of knowing or experiencing God. “Experiencing God is such a struggle,” he […]
Does Goes exist? Is there a God? I have answered that question for myself. You must answer for yourself. Or, ignore the question, pretend you’ve never asked the question, or just wait for the question to return. It likely will. Whatever you do, my advice is to ask the question, seek an answer, but do not seek […]
Suffering, to paraphrase Richard Roar’s definition is “the feeling that you are not in control.” Being conscious, or aware, that our suffering, this internal disquieted state of our soul, is the consequence of our feelings of being “out of control” may escape us. The suffering, however, does not. The suffering, too, may take many different […]
What do I think when I think God? I try not to. It makes sense to try not to think too much of God, does it not? I mean, how does one think of God except in ways that are limiting, loaded with ideas and assumptions that are incomplete at best and, most often, just […]
Morning thoughts on your real ancestry… Your spiritual ancestry. Try this on for size. Your spiritual ancestry – your real ancestry is revealed in the tenth chapter of his Gospel. John says that the people were intent on killing Jesus because he was not content with merely breaking the Sabbath, He dared to speak of God […]
Healing. “Do you want to be healed?” asked Jesus of the invalid man who was brought daily to the Pool of Bethesda (John 5). Not everyone wants to be healed, do they? Do you? It is healing we need, isn’t it? Or, is it something else? For much of my Christian experience, the preoccupation of […]
One day, Jesus went into the temple and began throwing people out. Or, is this a story of the day Jesus threw God out of Church? Check it out for yourself. In Luke 19:45-46, we read… “Going into the Temple, he began to throw out everyone who had set up shop, selling everything and […]
Wrestling with God. What does this mean? Wrestling with God This is a Biblical myth for which I have had much fascination and attraction over the years. It is that story of Jacob who wrestled all night long with a man, an angel, or, was it God? I suspect it doesn’t matter, though I am […]
What is the secret of contentment? Christ consciousness. Contentment But what does this mean? The following is my attempt to explain these words and how they connected to the secret of contentment. When I use the words “Christ consciousness” I am referring to an inner awareness of one’s origin and identity as a temporary human expression […]
Problems. We all have them. Which makes all this talk I hear about gratitude all the more problematic. The longer I live, the more aware I am that there are two distinct types of gratitude: The first is SITUATIONAL or CONTEXTUAL; the other is a STATE OF CONSCIOUSNESS. Problems The first comes and goes based […]
