THE THOUGHT EXCHANGE
Overcoming Our Resistance To Living A Sensational Life
With the proliferation of books like "The Secret," we now know that what we think, appears in the world as what we see there. So how come we're having such a hard time holding the thoughts we want to hold? How come we take on a positive thought only to find, moments or days later, that we're back to the same old thought and seeing the same old results we've always seen.
In this groundbreaking book, David gives us the missing piece, the real secret to identifying the underlying thoughts we're actually thinking, exchanging them, and being able to stay with them and see the results we've always wanted to see but never knew how to achieve. Order the book here.

IS TITHING FOR ME?
A Practical Exploration of Tithing
Tithing (giving 10% of your income to your church or spiritual home) is not charity. It is not a gift. It is not a donation. Tithing is a way of supporting a person, place or institution that you consider your source of spiritual food, so that that person, place or institution can support you in getting what you truly want. When we realize this, tithing changes from being a burden and an obligation, to being a joyful and easy way to know and experience that infinite abundance is here right now and available to all of us. This pamphlet is especially for those who have had their doubts or have struggled with tithing.
IS FORGIVENESS FOR ME?
For Those Who Have Tried and Just Can't Seem to Do It
Yes, forgiveness IS for you, and only for you. We do not forgive anyone else, but rather forgive ourselves the thoughts we took took on about someone else, or about something that happened. With the understanding that our thoughts are the only thing causing our world to appear as it does, we realize that forgiveness has nothing to do with talking to anybody, letting anybody off the hook or having to let go of anything. It's a completely inside job. In this insightful and readable pamphet, David not only offers a new perspective on forgiveness, but takes us through any resistance we may have to doing it. When we forgive ourselves, our world changes dramatically as our "problems" disappear into thin air.
Live Lecture – IS TITHING FOR ME? – mp3
In this talk, given live at Unity of New York, David elucidates why tithing, rather than being a burden or an obligation, can be a liberating, abundance-producing activity. This light and funny talk is especially for those who have their doubts about tithing, but also for those who want more insight into why tithing works.
The Thought Exchange® is a workshop I developed and have been leading all across the United States for the past five years. The book The Thought Exchange – Overcoming Our Resistance To Living A Sensational Life describes my method of working with the concept that the world is merely a mirror of our thoughts, and that by exchanging one thought for another we can actually see our world change right before our eyes.
Although this basic principle has become fairly common knowledge with books such as Conversations with God, The Power of Positive Thinking, and most recently, The Secret, Thought Exchange work addresses critical aspects that all the other methods leave out:
I first developed the concepts in this book while conducting most of the major Disney Animated Films, In addition to many years of studying metaphysics, psychotherapy and New Thought, my qualifications for doing this work come from my long career as a composer, record producer, conductor of Broadway shows and films, teacher and lecturer.
All this being said, The Thought Exchange has to be experienced to be appreciated. I invite you to read the book, try out its principle and see how they impact your own life.
Thanks for your interest in The Thought Exchange.

"You brought a lot of class to our program and personally helped me with a road block I could not get around. I am better because I met you, to paraphrase a line out of Wicked. I look forward to our paths crossing again."
Elizabeth A. Joyner, President - Oklahoma Women's Bar Association
"Thanks for taking the time to address your own issues so that you're now able to explain these concepts so clearly that we can actually understand and use them. By the time the seminar was over this afternoon, I had exchanged a limiting thought I was holding to one that encouraged me to apply for a newly-created position on staff. Sent my resume in tonight. "I can live with the feeling!" It's worth it, because I really want to be the one responsible for coordinating our volunteer ministries at the church."
John Lochner, Unity of Dallas
"It was as if something unlocked within me at The Thought Exchange Wednesday night. I've read countless books and all roads have lead to your door it seems. What you give, share and teach with such clarity and simplicity all pulls together on a personal level and the professional creative level. It is for me like a giant piece of a puzzle that kept eluding me, and now I've found it."
Dora Ruben, New York City
"So when we trade a thought that doesn't best serve us for the one that we want; AND then we get to feel the feelings we've been trying to avoid; AND if we don't label, interpret, despise or diminish them, we can now energetically move over and remember that anything/everything is possible – that the Universe if pure poential. We don't blanket the feelings we're dodging with platitude or affirmation band-aids. Rather, we give a nod to the feelings without picking at them or coating them with extra attention/crud—which then frees us to remember the big background Truth: all is possible, and I can choose to breath in (inspiration) possibility. In this state of remembrance, of congruence with the Truth, affirmations can now successfully do their work."
Kathy Szaj, New York City
"I can't think of any experience like this, where the level of heartfelt consciousness is so active and trusting, and inspiring for us to continue working on our most creative project, ourselves...and to have someone like you who really gets it all and makes it happen is a gift. I feel very lucky to have landed in this space. It's an incredible experience which requires work, hard work, in allowing feelings to take center stage."
Arje Shaw, Unity of New York City
"I am writing to tell you how much I have loved reading The Thought Exchange. I've told people that I believe that that book was written for me, but I am sure that a lot of others feel the same way. I feel that your book, coupled with The Secret and The Law of Attraction, coming together the way and the time in which they did have helped me move forward in my 'new thought.'"
Marian Bommarito, Unity of Dallas
What you did with me at The Thought Exchange last night and how you wrote about it is amazing...because you are amazing. I AM so grateful.
Theo Roca, Unity of New York City
"There isn't really a way for me to express my gratitude for you or for your work. I have a renewed way of looking at the world since I began studying with you. I never truly believed that I could walk through my feelings. I have now done it, and I know that this new ability is a direct result of going to your classes. The moment when things clicked was just astonishing."
Melissa Garno, New York City
"I love what you have created and I have only come one week! I am glad there is such a mix of talent and I am thrilled at how you treat everyone's growth as important. I will try to remember everything you said when I come next week. My goal for the class is to find a few things I can comfortably sing and to work through the feelings of nervousness. Thank you for being so welcoming and attentive and I feel especially grateful for your stories and the vast talent and experience you have! Thank you for sharing it with me."
