1. Exploration

2. Intensify your exploration

3. Increasing energy and clarity

4. Fritz’s manifesto

5. Fritz at Esalen and Cowichan

Fritz begins exactly where you are right now as you read this sentence. This moment is all you ever have. His goal is to make you fully aware of the NOW---be it beautiful or ugly, boring or ecstatic, petty or magnificent.

Being in the NOW gives you a more accurate connection with Reality and increases your opportunities to create a satisfying life.
