Embracing the Darkness

The darkness is fully upon us, and I invite her in so that I can know her more intimately. The darkness is not only in the form of winter, cold, and COVID aloneness, but of human depravity and ignorance in the time of the great unraveling. Our human civilization has wandered far from the path …

High Divide 9.20.2020

3:45 a.m. The Milky Way twinkles silently over head. Restless sleep in the back of Hotel Prius, but small admission price to pay for entrance into one of the last large tracts of wilderness left on the planet. I heat some oat meal in a pot next to the car and by 4:45 a.m., I …

CommuniChi Update May 6, 2020

One of my Buddhist teachers often quoted Voltaire: “Doubt is uncomfortable, but certainty is absurd”.

Dear Patrons and Friends, I hope this finds you joyful and at ease, remembering to breathe as you navigate whatever challenges the world lays at your feet. I miss seeing you all!

Building A Better World Starts Here and Now

In my last blog, I shared my experience of being abruptly pulled out of a silent retreat by COVID-19. I had intended to remain in silence for a month. Nonetheless, I felt fortunate to have participated in 12 days of rigorous spiritual exploration. Having been home for nearly a month and not having held an …
