Way of Stillness
I believe that by sitting in stillness our brains are allowed to process and thereby reduce the emotional intensity that frequently overwhelms and obscures our experience of the present moment. I also believe that sitting in stillness often results in spontaneous feelings of appreciation, gratitude, and thus, compassionate behavior.
A carefully constructed discussion of this path is available in my book, Way of Stillness(2015). It may be purchased on-line from the tab, "About Way of Stillness". Additional pieces on the subject will be found under the tab, "Short writings".
The way of stillness is very much a way of action. Sitting with others on a weekly basis supports and enhances our practice greatly. Because of that I have organized a number of Stillness Groups in the Tri-State area. For more information about what to expect from these opportunities , as well as a list of current Stillness Groups, please go to the tab, "Stillness Groups". Also, check out some very worthwhile special events coming up in the near future.(Click the tab, "Events".)
