Innate: Meditation Colive
Reunion 2023! :)
Let it cut you more deep.
Let it ferment and season you as few human and even divine ingredients can.
Something missing in my heart tonight has made my eyes so soft,
my voice so tender,
my need for the divine absolutely clear.
What YOU'LL find here:
Also a link to a potential zoom class on 3 Year Retreat if there is enough interest.
I have recently hired a friend to help me redo a new webpage and help me with some marketing and she has asked me to collect testimonials. So if your willing I'd be quite grateful for any testimonials in regards to my teaching and our classes and for any of you that did one-on-one work with me.
Here is a link for those or feel free to send me one in WhatsApp at any point or via email. firstname.lastname@example.org. Much thanks for that.

― Chögyam Trungpa
“Everything is plundered, betrayed, sold,
Deaths great black wing scrapes the air,
Misery gnaws to the bone.
Why then do we not despair?
By day, from the surrounding woods,
Cherries blow summer into town
At night the deep transparent skies
Glitter with new galaxies.
And the miraculous comes so close
To the ruined dirty houses –
Something not known to anyone at all
But wild in our breast for centuries.”
-- Anna Akhmatova
"While my view is as vast as the sky my actions are as finely ground as barley flour."
