This moment right here is the path.

Meditation allows us to become more familiar with our lives. By resting our attention in the embodied moment, we come to appreciate how things are for us. These dishes. This meeting. That reaction. As our capacity to be present with and open to all of it deepens, we begin to understand and experience the path that is our lives.

This is the heart of what meditation has offered me through the years: a growing awareness that this moment, whatever it may be, is my only true path in life. This here-ness is my most reliable teacher and guide. Through the practice, I am called back to nothing more, nothing less than this.

Knowing how much this work has enriched my own life over the past several decades, I look forward to sharing the teachings and practices of embodied meditation with you in yours. Whatever your background or level of experience, you will find a range of opportunities and resources here – all intended to help you welcome and explore this moment right here, this path that is yours to live.

I hope you are inspired to join me,

Sitting Quietly

At the beginning of every practice session, I spend a few moments sitting quietly. I stop all obvious movement and orient my wandering attention in a single direction. I’m not too forceful with this. I don’t define that single direction too precisely. Nor do I demand too much fidelity in this regard. All of which means there’s a fair bit of drifting during this span.

A Simple Return

It was a simple return. My daughter had a pair of socks she wanted to take back. As I was going to the mall anyway, I volunteered to do this. After taking care of my own errands, I searched out the appropriate clothing store, offered up the item and receipt, and watched as the amount was placed on my credit card. Like I said, a simple return.
