Our friend took a 5-month retreat to write his own story following his departure from work. He had been dissatisfied for many years, and he needed to fight his way back to himself. Finally, for those 5 months, he gave himself the gift of silence, space, and reflection. Our friend spent many lonely evenings away […]

Our nephew Joshua described a simple dish that we think is worth sharing far and wide.  Josh decided it was time to take some action with his general health.

We were reading a number of books about consciousness, among them were several by Ken Wilbur: “Boomeritis,” and “A Brief History of Everything,” as well as another book called “What Really Matters.” We also read (after having seen the movie) “What the Bleep Do We Know,” which led us to discover “Ramtha: the White Book.” […]
