The peace we cultivate within ourselves
flows outward.
And in the same way
the suffering we allow in others
creeps into our own lives.

Gathering Silence Reminder Pre-Order by Dec. 5

Gathering Silence Reminder Pre-Order by Dec. 5

There are just a few days left to pre-order your copy of Gathering Silence at the discounted price. Pre-orders must be received by Dec. 5. The new book will also be available in a couple of weeks through Amazon, but if you want to receive your order in time for the holidays, pre-ordering is the safest option.

See everything
with a fierce eye
and a gentle heart.

And don’t forget about Rashani Réa’s wonderful collages! In the Introduction, I say of her artwork, “With their rich colors, organic forms, and fluid lines, her collages feel as if they have been grown in a secret magical garden.” The book’s color makes it a wonderful gift for family, friends, and fellow seekers.

You can read more about Gathering Silence here. To pre-order your copy, click here.

and take notes.
