Vipassana Meditation

Vipassana Meditation as taught by S.N. Goenka, is a straightforward, practical way to achieve real peace of mind and this to lead a happy, useful life. Vipassana means “to see things as they really are”. The technique is a process of mental purification through self-observation. Upon request I happily host Weekly Vipassana Meditation, Group Sittings, in Kaslo BC for those…

Dance for Awakening

Body Is The Temple Odissi Indian Classical Dance works not only with the body but with the entire being. It is like learning to walk again. The struggle itself is a blessing. To challenge oneself and grow beyond self-imposed limits is the empowering nature of dance as sadhana. The essence of what we all seek…

Impressionable Shapeshifter

I’ve always been intrigued and quite curious by our ability as human beings to be shapeshifters. And the idea that without self awareness it is not so much an ability we are tapping into, but rather its an automatic response, a reaction to the changing environment, energies and worlds around us that make us naturally…

A Gentle Rain

Falling asleep to the sounds of gentle rain fall last night felt like a lullaby soothing my body, mind and soul – teaching me how to wait better so as not to become tense in the “not knowing” but rather formed by the waiting and transition to the other side. The sweetest dreams are yet…

Mask of Power

Who will come to my funeral? For I have just gone through a death. Will you celebrate my re-birth, on this day I’m born anew on the earth? My willingness to die, a thousand million deaths, is my power and strength in life. Its how I illumine paths. Like the brightest rays of the Sun…

Rite to Bloom

At first it appears as a simple square canvas, 30×30, pure white and plain. The longer I stare at it the more I See. It is like a window into the dream lodge of my Soul. It tells my stories, the echos of my heart in full frequency grandeur and scale, vibrating colour and shifting…

Each Thought, A Seed

I saw a swirl of darkened seeds, rotten with diseased thought and terror just floating in space. They seemed to be gathering… like they were attracted to each other by an unseen magnetic force in like a mid-heaven between this earthly paradise and the mystical skies above. They started to gather close and swirl like…

Spider Woman

As I stare into the white void. . . colours and images start showing themselves to me, some fully formed and some in their processes of becoming the form that they desire to be. I see a giant woman, an elderly, straggly woman who appears to be at least 10,000 years old. Her hands are…

The Practice of Loving Kindness

Metta The buddha taught that the cultivation of a kind and loving heart, and ultimately of a “boundless love” for all creation, was the most important dimension of our spiritual work. Sustaining a loving heart, he taught, even for the duration of a snap of a finger, makes one a truly spiritual being. This quality…
