Tickets bought. We leave next week. One way to Brussels- me, husband, one dog & 2 cats. The process has been exhausting. No time to write (or think).

Meditation is deepening into clarity beyond the boundary of the body and the mind.

With so many spiritual traditions and schools teaching – and so many people practicing – meditation, you would think there’d be a consistent, solid understanding in how to meditate, as well as what the techniques and the goals are in meditation practice.  Sadly, in many places this is not the case today, and although the fundamentals and methods of meditation are at the core of every spiritual tradition, these practices have been largely overlooked or oversimplified, even though they are the very cornerstone to spiritual self-development.

For the curious and the ones who want to learn, you must ask many questions. Many of the best groups will not tell you much if you do not ask because they do not wish to be pushy or to become a commercial endeavour.

    Thank you once again,
