Let’s Meditate Together Several Sundays in May

Do you know what’s going to help right now?

Yes….A Big, Long Exhale.

I’ve been wondering how all of us–the whole world–will get through this global pandemic, several more weeks of confinement, and whatever comes next.

After several days in silent meditation last weekend, I’m pretty sure that remembering to breathe will be an important tool in our toolboxes as we’re all called to be even more resilient, resourceful and courageous.
So…Let’s Breathe Through it!
Continuing the Sunday Bursts of Strength
and Support Through May

Yes, I’m keeping the free, 30-minute breathwork, meditation and journaling sessions going through the end of May. The world needs this space–you need this space, and I’ll hold the space for you.

If you know anyone else who may like to give this a whirl, please forward this email to them.

The sessions will be on:

  • May 3
  • May 17*
  • May 24
  • May 31
6 p.m. Europe | 12 noon ET | 9 a.m. PT

Register here for the Zoom call.
Note: It’s a different link than the one we used for the April sessions.

* There will be no session May 10. I am beginning my formal mindful meditation teacher training program that weekend. 



Each Sunday in April: Let’s Co-Create Resilience and Resourcefulness

Because we all need to come together in new ways, I’m starting a Sunday Burst of Strength, Solidarity and Support.

Let’s come together for 30 minutes to breathe, meditate and journal/sketch.

Bring your favorite mat, chair, notebook, and pens or markers. We’ll leave a few minutes for sharing wisdom at the end.

Up  Next: Sunday, April 12, 2020

6 p.m. Europe/CET time  | 12 p.m. ET | 9 a.m. PT

The plan is to make this a weekly gathering for the next few weeks as we move through coronavirus-related confinement. Continue reading Each Sunday in April: Let’s Co-Create Resilience and Resourcefulness

A four-year flashback: First Steps Lead to More Steps

“Let’s just get to that next pole. We can rest there,” I tell Lluís, pointing ahead about 200 meters.

It wasn’t a pole. It was a half-constructed, load-bearing concrete substructure designed to support the weight of a road or train tracks being built over our heads. In the +33-degree Celsius (91 degree Fahrenheit) hot, sticky and uncomfortable Thai heat the phrase “load-bearing structure” never entered my mind. At that moment, I was my own load-bearing structure, with about 40 pounds on my back. Words didn’t come easy. That pole, or whatever it was, was my salvation, and so was the one after that, and the one after that.

A Fundraiser That Started 5 Years Ago and Continues Today

From June 15 – 22, I am doing a walking fundraiser for a Rutgers University journalism scholarship I co-founded to honor the memory of a classmate, work colleague, and friend.

Please consider joining me as we finish our walk the same way we started it with:  Finding and sharing kindness, one step at a time.
