Dear Friends, Our 15-year-old son was on one side of the plexiglass barrier. We were on the other side, having just passed through US Customs, and were ready to make our way towards the airport gate.

Traveling with a guide, we took daily hikes in alpine mountains, leafy green foothills, rolling vineyard country, and seaside retreats. Divested of commercial bombardment and electronic overwhelm in public spaces, the country was idyllic, relaxed, grounded. Water in … Read More

Sunday Meditation – March 3rd

Dear Friends, I had a funny thought the other day. While meditating with my inner gaze at the point between the eyebrows, and getting ready to come out, for some reason, I put my glasses on my face before opening my eyes. And for a split second, my brain expected the disappointingly fuzzy image before my spiritual sight would become … Read More
