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.

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 […]
The Problem with Faith is that Faith is a Problem The following video blog first appeared as a blog at my site with BeliefNet.com. At the close of this video below, I’ll provide a link to that site, should you be interested in reading the lengthier version of what I am video-recording here. This is […]
Generosity in giving is best motivated by storytelling. “Once upon a time…” Not this kind of storytelling. But who does not love from time to time, a good “Once upon a time…” kind of story? The kind of storytelling that best motivates generosity in giving is the personal and authentic. My name is Steve McSwain. […]
When a pet dies, what do you do? This post first appeared on my BeliefNet.com blog. Last Wednesday, we said “Good-bye” to our beloved Oscar, a mini-Dachshund, who brought to Pam and me more joy, laughter, and companionship than I can describe here. I have never cried so much in all my life. Will I […]
The recent public storm over actress Renee Zellweger’s changing facial look is raising the age-old question about growing old: How does anybody do it? You don’t. Growing old does you. That’s the conclusion to which I have come, anyway. Nobody grows old. You just wake up one day and realize you are. Dress up aging […]
How to Know God Or, Making Room for More…of God Matthew 22:1-14; Philippians 4:1-9 How to know God. I get that question a lot. I’ve asked that question a lot. Jesus once told a parable of a Wedding Feast (Matthew 22:1-14). A king prepared a huge party…a wedding party…for his son. When the party was […]
