In the last few months, I have conversed with two different young people (both mid-twenties) who told me they do not have computers, barely text, and don’t have smart phones. I found my mouth literally ajar. “Really?” I said, “But how do know what’s happening in your area and stuff?” One of them said “Oh, […]
I’m focused on the practice of presence. The practice of my own soul-presence in my body resonating out and watching how the mind interrupts this juicy experience with stories and memories of fear. I have every good reason to run fear through my nervous system (based on what I have lived through) but now I don’t need […]
Torielle and I make videos every few months to mark the moment and be creative together. We have gotten used to bantering like this. We kind of mind-meld. Here’s what Eckhart Tolle says about children and the pain-body. Here he is talking about what to do after tantrums or big expressions of unhappiness in the […]

For me, my daughter points the way. All day long, she points me in the direction of opening. She shows me how to do it. She thrives at a level way beyond my usual, daily suffering. She reaches towards me with her big, fearless heart and says “Go this way” and when I follow her, […]
Today I set an hour and a half to just focus on T., my 2 year old. Turned off phones, closed computer, no texts, no distractions at all for that time period. I gave myself the task of FOLLOWING HER LEAD on everything and not asking her to follow mine AT ALL. Usually it’s a […]
