Stillness. One of the doorways into the temple. Mary Oliver
This space is intended to be of service to you. I hope to convey the path and the practice of meditation so that it can become accessible and come alive in your daily life. While people explore this path for many reasons, perhaps ultimately we arrive to experience a deep and abiding peace amidst the movements of life. After a long time, we may feel like we have found a place of rest and returned home.
While there are many methods and lineages that offer guidance, at the same time there is a simplicity that invites you to Be in your direct experience. As ordinary as this seems, it is at also profound and can reveal a depth of ease and calm. This does not require thoughts to subside, circumstances to shift, nor for you to change in any way. The experience of Being is closer than you may think, and my heartfelt intention is to help you find your way through this transformative practice.
In this new year of classes, I will be offering a gentle progression of themes, allowing a week or two of exploration per theme. We will begin with the foundations: uncovering heartfelt purpose in life, intention in our days which might include a fresh commitment to practice, and the feeling sense of an Inner Resource to which we can return at any point for refuge and nourishing. From these foundations, we will begin to explore the koshas or layers of our being. While a class discussion might hone in on a specific layer, guided practice will often include meeting all the layers: Body, Breath, Emotions, Thoughts, Joy and Being (Awareness).
