My mindful living lineage is the Massachusetts forest-dwelling tradition of Henry David Thoreauji, my primary philosophical school that of hard knocks and soft whispers, and my practice an abundance of personal experience and places, great books — East and West — sweet dreams, great teachers, long walks and lonely winters, the woods and the waters, mountains and valleys, the glorious sun and just-fallen snow, stillness and silence, and, perhaps most importantly, great trust in the wisdom within and without, whispered by the greatest teachers of all — the breath and the ten thousand things — such that only the subtlest of listeners can hear their truth.
