Meditation is the practice of
coming home to ourselves
in every moment, exactly as we are.
In the times that we are in, it’s easy to become overwhelmed and confused. A lot of people are experiencing stress, anxiety, and depression and don’t know where to turn for help. But, we are not the first to have come up against this predicament.
Many of the great spiritual traditions teach us that truth, relief, and refuge can be found right here, right now, in each present moment. I believe we are infinitely capable to meet our experience - all of it, the joys and the suffering - with sincere and loving awareness. Friendship, teachers, and a community of practice help tremendously.
From young, I have been absorbed in different kinds of stillness and embodiment practices: diving deep into Zen Buddhism, Daoism, and Yoga, Some of my deepest teachers in these wisdom traditions include Diane Musho Hamilton, Cheng Yen, Jeffrey Yuen, and Richard Freeman.
