Today is my birthday. The passage of time is a curious thing. It feels as if I continually grow closer to new beginnings where life swims in my body with greater ease. This has less to do with the number of years as with the poetry of living moments that shape days. Life is stirring […]


In Silence

Something is here in nothing. A silky darkness. A wild emptiness. A river of shapes and sound. A face with its never-before, never-after turn of lips. Just so and never again, lighting universes and rainbows as tongues of fire singe my heart. Photo by Elizabeth Gadd


Life In The Making

The essential stream of life that animates wind and breathes in stone, equally moves in our heart freely like breath in lungs. The soul of the world is both deeply personal and universal and longs for its full wonder to come alive in us. We come to life in the best way we can as […]

Where Kingdoms Converge

We learned to identify our life by our circumstances, experiences and the manifest form we see. Deeper, like an underground drum pounding its rhythm through roots and treetops, life calls attention to wholeness. Beyond what is known, life invites experiencing this moment where an unseen and seen are realized as one. Here, kingdoms of dark […]


Authenticity In Action

Summer Message

Sometimes life includes a radical departure from the norm. We may be moved to do or be or let go in unexpected ways. Sometimes there’s a tug from our heart or a poke from grace that simply cannot be ignored. My great grandmother may have felt this way the day she stood on a dock […]


Happy Solstice!

A change in seasons points our attention to new life yet every day is a new season with new life. Every moment is a new tide washing us with fresh opportunity to choose what is here now — a pulse inside that is breathing itself alive as wildly varied expressions in this wide amazing world. […]


A Nameless Beauty

When I was 3, my parents were my center. When I was 25, my own family was my center. Life wore on, wearing me like springtime and winter. When I was 40, I was stripped to a raw center. Today my center is the altar of this moment. This centerless life is a Nameless Beauty. […]


Spring 2017 Update

It’s a fast world. Viewpoints and boundaries are thinning. Veils of unconsciousness are lifting. Horizons are merging. Global ideas are colliding and polarizing. Life is a curious thing as winter lets go into spring. The increasing speed of life calls us to live at a pace of presence with heart, sensitivity and soul. This season […]
