They’ve been referring the surplus of families calling for donations to individual donors and having the donors do the work of contacting to […]

Is it a selfish practice, one that takes time away from the outside world, so that we may focus on our internal landscape? Is it for the good of others? My answer to these questions is yes, it is for these things, and for so much more.

as I settled into not practicing physically, I felt my practice with me endlessly. This is not something that I came to learn right away, but as I’ve grown to experience the effects of my practice when I’m living my life, out in the real world, I’ve grown to accept that this practice is available within me, is part of my living, no matter where I am. The key is in developing consistency in arranging your life around being a practitioner.
