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.

Listening When There Are No Words

Her husband died six months ago. She has been coming to me for grief work for the last three months. Yesterday during our session we had two very long moments of just sitting together, no words, no eye contact...just being together. She sat there, looking down at the floor, just thinking.

When the session was over, she said to me, "Thank you for listening to me think."
Deep bows to her for sharing such a sacred time with me.
