Three Faces of Pain ... Life and Life’s Pain is the Teacher

I had been journaling for a number of years ... and supplying handouts to my clients on a weekly basis in our group sessions ... in 2001 ... I decided to format them into a work book form ... thus Zen and the Art of Walking Lightly was generated ...

Hidden Pain

Obvious Pain

Deep Internal Pain

Life and Life’s Pain Is The Teacher … for those who have passed by me and attempted to notice, almost to a person, they discovered that life and the ensuing pain acted like a fierce and loving teacher that reminded them again and again to go beyond themselves and their own preconceived notions into a deeper investigation of self, and to begin to let this moment be as it is … to simply observe what arises in the fullness of what’s next that needs to be addressed.
