Debate as a Contemplative Discipline

Practicing the process of debate outwardly in relation to other beings can teach us so much about how to go through it internally with ease and elegant simplicity. We can learn to enjoy the process whereby existing opinions are forced by wisdom into concession. This is a crucial compliment to a non-conceptual meditation practice for anyone wishing to become a masterful co-creator of intention.

Sacred Sorrow: Being With Grief and Loss

With recent global and personal events, many of us are experiencing feelings of profound grief and loss.

By giving specific space and time to the grief that needs to be processed, we can both work through those feelings and be in the world.
