with Sharon Beckman-Brindley
Recent events and much of popular culture invite us relentlessly to wander off and then hide out in the “rabbit holes” of mental chatter, confusion and familiar though unhelpful thought patterns. Our daily practice invites us to step out of those patterns and pause into awareness, curiosity and choice: ongoing investigation and choice toward what is most wise and loving, though perhaps less familiar.
