Life is EASY!

Posted by on Sep 30, 2016

One of the many reasons I LOVE Thailand is that life is SO easy here! This Thai man makes the case so clearly and beautifully: I am now leading excursions showing people new to Thailand how EASY life can be here, so that whether they want to live here or return again and again for travels and sabbaticals, it is EASY for them!

VisionForce In 2016

Thats the view from my hotel room high above Santiago, Chile a few weeks ago. I am here preparing my return to my work. Although I am getting ‘productive’ again after a 5 year sabbatical… I am not going to give up this life of international travel! Currently my focus is on creating material and programs for men who are not inspired to follow in the footsteps of their elders or...

My First Day at Ave Maria!

Posted by on Aug 7, 2014

The next morning after an early breakfast I joined...

“I Just Want To Give My Gift!”

Posted by on Oct 23, 2013

BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM… Wild African drum beats echoed up from the valley, bouncing off the mountain walls and through the open balcony doors.  It was Carnival, high in the mountain town of Ouro Preto, Brazil, February 2012–middle of the night. Everyone else was celebrating for the fifth day and night in a row.  I was in my room, tears streaming down my face, my heart beating fast. The...

My Next Experiment: Gifting Meets Crowd Funding

Posted by on Oct 7, 2013

Hey it’s Michael Skye, writing from Thailand. In 2006 at the height of the Iraq War, I was no longer content to sit on the sidelines. I knew that I could make a bigger difference, if I turned the focus of my work and my life to supporting revolutionaries, social entrepreneurs, visionary artists and activists… That’s when VisionForce was born. If I take away all the grand...
