Monk In The World

To be a monk is to have time to practice for your transformation and healing. And after that to help with the transformation and healing of other people.

Back Home


Been at the beach for seven days with 16 adults (all family) and six children (oldest was six years old). I love them all, but it is always good to come home.

That is one way practice speaks to me. It is a coming home, coming to things as they really are, not having to travel some long distance to find rest. Just this, just this moment, just this place is where life is. And the beautiful practice of ROUTINE! What rest and peace there is in that!

Deep Bows to my place of abiding.
