"Discover a way of being with experience that really helps."

"And when you follow the out-breath all the way to the end, it can draw you into a moment of stillness...by practicing in this way, over and over again, the breath can become a rudder to navigate the ups and downs of life with just a little bit more peacefulness, trust, and clarity."
"Clearly knowing how it is for you right now -- and that however it is, it's not a mistake -- this is the truth of the moment. It couldn't be any other way. You couldn't be any other way than how you are right now. There is no right or wrong way to be; the beauty of this practice is what's happening right now, who and how you are, is exactly the way it was meant to be simply because it is...simply because it's so."
Learn how to infuse your daily practice with love and kindness by cultivating an open attitude of joy and discovery.

"Out of the willingness to experience our wild and untamed mind…we begin to discover/uncover the depth inside of the simplicity of just being here.”
