Yesterday mid-afternoon I went into silence. Except for posting the blogs and leading the morning meditations I will be living unplugged for the next few days.
Why? Since my early 20’s silent retreats have been strong medicine to realign my body, mind, heart and spirit to radical changes in and around my life. Being in silence, sitting on my zafu, making simple meals, and doing kinhin in the morning and evening helps me sink into the “what-isness” of the infinite moment.
Within the silence the ordinary becomes extraordinary… In this silence fear cannot live.

We are all new at this. We are all collectively rewiring our brains to adapt. This is why tiredness can be part of our day.
To help the rewiring process Live in Beginners Mind.
Attend to your day as a newborn, napping when needed. Rest your body and mind. Utilize meditation, mindfulness practices and good old fashioned exercise with foods that nourish.
Zen it down. We are all on a Learning Curve of Not Knowing.

The world is reinventing itself in this moment. Together we are walking in the mysteries of the unknown on a crash course of adapting and integrating.
You are invited to join me on Zoom each day to meditate silently from 6 to 6:30am Mountain Time. It’s in these silent spaces where we find resiliency in an infinite and nourishing mindset.
Come, come, whoever you are. Wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving. It doesn’t matter. Ours is not a caravan of despair. Come, even if you have broken your vows a thousand times. Come, yet again, come, come. Rumi
