Samu: Work As Spiritual Practice

In the house where I used to live I often watched out the back window of my ground floor office where there was a children’s playground. It was a closed in small area probably no more that 40 X 30 feet where the children attending a private school would play during lunch and breaks. But early in the morning I was most interested in watching a custodian who worked there.

Indra's Net

As many of you already know, Laura's brother died on December 9th of a sudden and massive heart attack. He was only 53 years old and left behind his wife and 19 year old daughter, two siblings (Laura & Keith) and his parents (Ray & Jane). And as this New Year has come upon us so quickly, I find myself thinking of Craig's death only a few weeks ago.

Seven Weddings, Seven Funerals

I was getting my hair cut the other day at Marilyn's house. She has been cutting my hair every five weeks for the last ten years and the hour is filled with getting caught up with each other as my ever greying hair drops to the floor. I should also mention that Marilyn has her doctorate in Psychology and a private practice.

But You Also Eat Jello

There is a new voice that I am writing with these days. It is a voice that has a louder baritone hum. It has no falsetto. It is an unnerving new sound. Lower. Wider. Slower. I don't recognize it yet.

You Have A Back

We are front-oriented beings. As much as we would like to claim otherwise and believe me, my mother used to, we do not have eyes in the back of our heads. When we move out into the world, we orient from the front of our bodies. There are interesting things to see and smell and notice.

Air Pockets of Wisdom

I know a lot about Integral Coaching®. It is where I spend all of my time. I mean it: all of my time. It is as though it breathes me, it works its way through me. Every book I read, every song I hear, every conversation I have, and every movie I see. Integral everywhere.

Compassionate Disruption

I attended my first one week silent retreat at Mabel Dodge Luhan House in Taos, New Mexico two years ago. The format of the retreat was complete silence, periods of meditation (zazen), slow walking (kinhin), and writing practice. We attended mindfully to our own care, ate meals quietly and made no eye contact with each other.

Truth Speaking Softly

The soft curve of the day meets me and invites discovery Gently I awaken to wonderment with eyes clouded over by too much pain or too much looking for pain


I have noticed that we human beings anguish much more about choice-making than situations that feel "choiceless."
