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,

All of which seems pretty straightforward in a 1 + 1 = 2 kind of way. But what the heck is meant by this term? What is being pointed to with the word ‘solidify’?

The Path

I was watching television the other night. Hardly the activity one might expect for a bit of meditative insight, but this is the truth: I was watching television. I’d tried viewing from the couch. Laying on one side and facing the TV, I found my glasses far too temperamental for this position.
