  • “When we question openly, our spiritual practice becomes a living experience, without dogma or fixed ideas.”
  • Teacher & Student

    What does it mean to trust anyone, especially a spiritual teacher? What do we do when a teacher doesn’t present him\herself in a way that is comfortable for us? I don’t see how it is possible to skip over questions like these.

    Meditation

    The purpose of meditation is to develop a sane relationship to experience. The struggles we have in life—shutting down, pushing away, feeling overwhelmed, and all the neurotic attach- ment—arise from the confusion we harbor about how to relate to the rich energy of the mind.

    Open Questioning

    What we call “suffering” is impossible to pin down because “suffering” is not a static thing. Ask yourself, “is this painful and raw experience ‘suffering’ before we judge it as such?”
