Recovery, Resiliency and a NEW Refrigerator Sequence

As I write this I am getting ready for my second hip replacement surgery. I am grateful for all that I have learned from the last 90 days of recovery from hip replacement #1.

March Newsletter

Delight. This word has been coming up in my mind and out of mouth frequently since I attended the Shambhala Guide Training earlier this month. Sakyong Mipham recently tweaked the instructions for basic mindfulness meditation, which he defines as “consciously placing...

January Newsletter

I’m looking at snow, lots of snow, which is seasonally appropriate since it is December, after all.  The official western 2012 is almost at an end, but the Chinese/Tibetan Year of the Water Dragon is not over yet.  It started on February 22 with the promise of gentle...
