A DELI OF DELIGHTS!

I’d like to share a little walk with you. The other day, two friends and I were alternately strolling, loitering and walking randomly about our Berkeley ‘hood. It was a walk on a day not unlike any other day. You know, a full sky and a full town – up to the heavens and down […]

NATURAL WELL-BEING & AGING: A Meeting Invitation

It’s our nature to be happy! You’re invited to a free, 6 week exploration with friends about life’s most profound and timeless existential questions – “Who am I?” and “What is this?” This is an unstructured and teacher-less gathering, drawing on some of the core non-dual spiritual principles common to all the major religious traditions […]

LIVING IN THE HALLWAY OF TIME

We’re always passing through time, living our actual life in a hallway that connects yesterday with tomorrow.

The kind of “curiosity” we’re talking about here is the kind that always moves toward love. The kind of curiosity that lands us smack […]

GUEST TEACHER FRED DAVIS: CLARITY IS A TWO-WAY STREET

SPIRITUAL TEACHINGS ARE TYPICALLY LAYERED. For example, sacred literature, whether it was written a thousand years ago, or the day before yesterday, can only reveal to us what we’re already prepared to see. There is a wealth of terrific information, and a ton of fabulous pointers in plain sight every day. We can’t see them […]

AUTHENTIC LIVING

“Every heart to love will come, but like a refugee” (Leonard Cohen) It’s a good thing that thought has almost nothing to do with reality. Not that thought isn’t a part of reality – a running commentary based on our conditioned memory – it’s just that thought is not nearly the whole of it. In […]

LEAVING THE ISLAND

It’s called “Terra Cognito” – Latin for known territory. The island is an insane little place in an ocean of sanity. Leaving Terra Cognita, the rock of knowledge we all know so well, happens when we see that sky-high piles of ideas can only ever tell us more about…ideas. It happens when we discover its […]
