Heart Light in Dark Times
"I've been reflecting on the environmental crisis, and as I do, I find myself in the darkness, as I imagine we all are to some degree. And that says something, something we shouldnt brush aside or try to make go away. This is a place for sharing truth -- and the truth right now is darkness. I sometimes reflect on how I've been practicing meditation, morality, restraint, generosity, sharing, and si... posted on Dec 03 2021, 1,966 reads


The Well of Being
The Well of Being is an exquisite 'children's book for adults,' one that encompasses the journey of life from the Big Bang, to this very moment that we find (or lose) ourselves in. Jean-Pierre Weill spent three years writing and illustrating this book about himself-- and perhaps everyone. Playful and profound in its approach to the human condition, Weill's words and whimsical drawings reveal the ... posted on Dec 02 2021, 2,240 reads


The Nap Ministry: Rest as Resistance
"I think all of these things are working to get us back to our full selves and back to who we are: divine human beings. That's one of the central ideas of the Nap Ministry: you are not a machine, you are a divine human being. If you knew your divinity, you would not be grinding. You would not allow for grind culture. You wouldn't allow yourself to miss sleep. If you saw yourself deeply as who you ... posted on Dec 01 2021, 2,379 reads


Transforming Trauma
"This is the timeless wisdom of the shamans, our planet's oldest indigenous healers, and also of our great religious and spiritual traditions: suffering is the soil in which wisdom and compassion grow; it is the school from which we graduate, committed to healing others' hurt. Recent scientific studies on post-traumatic growth yield similar conclusions.This is what I know after fifty years of clin... posted on Nov 30 2021, 2,736 reads


The Golden Rule & The Transformation of Being
"The most ancient of principles that binds all religious and philosophical traditions together is what we have come to call 'The Golden Rule.' Simple in its statement, its actual practice seems at best fitful and, for many, difficult to impossible, from the level of our ordinary consciousness. To be able to practice the principle even with those we already love is not always easy. To practice it w... posted on Nov 29 2021, 2,414 reads


Engraving Trust in the Heart
"The great way is not difficult
for those free of preferences.
Without attachment or aversion,
everything is transparent."
So begins this lovely translation of Xin Xin Ming (Engraving Trust in the Heart) attributed to Seng Can, the Third Chinese Patriarch of Zen.... posted on Nov 28 2021, 2,494 reads


Radical Self-Care for Survivors of Suicide Loss
"What does self-care mean, and what does it involve? Simply put, it implies -- physical, emotional, psychological, social and spiritual care. The very idea of survivors of suicide loss practicing self-care can seem radical. The stigma, shame, secrecy and silence that a survivor faces invisibilizes, erases and marginalizes any of their valid concerns. Equally relevant, most survivors themselves fee... posted on Nov 27 2021, 2,362 reads

ThanksBeing with Rumi
"It's Thanksgiving time...the holiday of humility and togetherness. The holiday that asks us to look within toward that ever-present beacon of gratitude which is often obscured by the frenetic world we've created. It reminds us to give, to make amends, to repair ruptured friendships and family ties. It leans into sustenance and nourishment. The table becomes the altar. The family become precious g... posted on Nov 25 2021, 4,709 reads


The Woman Beside Wendell Berry
"Here's my portrait of Tanya Berry: This white-haired 81-year-old is a fiercely independent thinker who embraces interdependence. Someone with a deep humility who gives others credit reflexively, and a self-confidence that makes her comfortable telling you what she believes she's good at. A kind person who doesn't hesitate to offer blunt advice. A woman who kept records of her prodigious canning i... posted on Nov 24 2021, 3,329 reads
