Out of nowhere, yes

All night I could not sleep because of the moonlight on my bed. I kept on hearing a voice calling: Out of Nowhere, Nothing answered "yes." ~attributed to the poetess Zi Ye sometime between 6th-3rd century BCE (transl. Arthur Waley)

I will be offering a 2-year online Dharma program, starting in late April of this year--2019-2021. We will allow the teachings to emerge from the field of our practice, commitment, friendliness, and silence. Participants will take initiative, listen, practice movement, leave space, share, meditate--connect to life in whatever ways help each one of us. One main guiding principle will be the practice of "dialog"-- David Bohm described what happens when a group of people begin to be less defensive, less interested in "expressing fixed positions." A "different kind of mind" begins to emerge, and we find clarity and kindness sprouting as if from nowhere.

Applications will be accepted soon.

Celebration where once there was a person

I was feeling like it was a good day for some Rumi...and came across this interview Tami Simon did with Coleman Barks, creator of modern versions of Jalalluddin Rumi's poetry. Barks met his Sufi teach

May our practice and our lives be dedicated to the momentum of awakening for all,

including ourselves.
