An Exploration of Sadhana

“The biggest embrace you’ll ever make is to embrace yourself completely. Then you’ll realize you’ve just embraced the whole universe, and everything and everybody in it.” ~ Adyashanti What extraordinary times! Each one of us must sit with the reality of a radically shifted world. Any sense of control we thought we had has fallen…

I am Here

Helpless. That’s the raw truth of it. At moments I feel helpless. All of my familiar ways of being, moving through the world, and supporting a community (both local and global) have shifted dramatically. Through this, I have found myself fumbling with how to be both the root of these teachings—these practices that help us…

FIRE

Here we go again…burning. The 370 fires burning across California are a manifestation of an entrenched global crisis. Human attention span has shortened to match the news cycle. While tending to one drama, we forget that the planet has been warming since at least the 1970’s, due to our choices and actions. The warning sirens…

The Pursuit of Sensation

“It is only when we understand the pursuit of sensation (drama), which is one of the major activities of the mind, that pleasure, excitement, and violence cease to be a dominant feature in our lives.” ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti From morning until night, we are drawn into the drama loop that spins through our own mind, our home, media,…

“Let what comes come. Let what goes go. Find out what remains.” ~ Ramana Maharshi What do I need to set down to become free? ⁣ ⁣ Without realizing it, we carry many heavy burdens from our family line, life experiences, and the pressures of living in this current time. These experiences imprint deeply on…

These tracks are meant to accompany us as we EMERGE into community and the world with a renewed sense of self, appreciation of our global family, and inner vitality. Our passion…

Mantras of Remembering

Do I miss singing with you? YES! In the absence of your voices, I’ve been turning inward to listen for you amidst all the other noise in there. I’ve been sitting with the echoes of all the songs we’ve sung together over the years; with the strength, longing, and joy you’ve brought forth through your voices….

Earth Day

We see the natural world breathing a sigh of relief from the near-incessant human encroachment. Our footprint upon this planet has been nothing short of catastrophic as we’ve erased billions of years of evolution in biodiversity and harmony in exchange for our momentary conveniences. Now, here we are, asked for a very short moment, to…

Chanting l Yoga of the Heart

Fear. Anxiety. Anticipation. Longing. Love. Frustration. Hope. Whatever you’re holding, carrying, or feeling, I’m pleading for you to bring it all. This is a gathering where you don’t have to clean yourself up to arrive. Your raw, full, vulnerable YOU is being asked to simply show up, as you are. Every emotion is fuel for…

It’s not about me

It’s not about me. This has been my mantra for decades. ⁣ We personalize everything, making it about the I/Me/My, as if the world spins around the Self. It’s natural, for sure…we all experience life through this Me. ⁣ However, this mantra is a reminder that life has been flowing for billions of years, births…
