A Warm Welcome to All of You

I want to give a warm heart-felt welcome to all of you who are visiting this new website.

In Soto Zen monasteries, a chant recited at meals begins, “Seventy-two labors brought us this food. We should know how it comes to us.” Seventy-two refers to the seventy-two individual jobs found in a monastery, ranging from cook to abbot, which enable the spiritual community to flourish. 

The creation and flourishing of this website are also dependent upon the labors of many people. I would like to acknowledge and express my gratitude to all who make it a (virtual) reality. Without your help, I would not be able to do it.

Robin, who is my editor extraordinaire and the love of my life –  

Mike, who hosts the website and provides vast amounts of technical guidance –

Alex, who created and designed the site –

The lineage of Dharma practitioners who have brought me these invaluable teachings and practices for liberating the heart –

And all of you, generous and curious visitors and friends, who have made it possible for me to offer the Dharma teachings and the healing of Somatic Experiencing® through your support.

Many thanks to all of you from the bottom of my heart! I look forward to our continued journeys together.
