Becoming more deeply engaged with the world around you
can accelerate your own path of liberation.
Your life is bigger than the boundaries around your skin.
When I was growing up, I loved the start of the school year – new books to read, inspiring teachers to learn from, and reconnecting with friends returning from summertime adventures. I’ve always had a passion for learning and connection.
September has always felt to me like the real beginning of the year – I wonder if that feels true for you too?
As this September starts, I’m ready to create something new… hence this newsletter!
A little background may be helpful. You’re receiving this email because you’ve signed up for one of my lists: the Liberated Life Project, Five Directions, and/or the Jizo Chronicles. Over the years, I’ve discovered that readers on any one of those sites often have no idea that the others exist. It seems I’ve created different spaces for different parts of myself… but now I can see how connected they all are.
Recently I’ve started to see how all these venues — and my whole body of work — have one thing in common: creating space for learning and transformation.
In the next few months, my big project is to bring together these online personas into one integrated space, a place dedicated to transformative learning and mindful awareness and to supporting those who share those values. This monthly newsletter is a first step in that direction and makes it easier for me to tell you what else is going on in my ‘world work,’ as a friend calls it.
I know lots of folks are downsizing in the email department. If you need to unsubscribe from this one, I understand. But if you feel that you’d enjoy hearing what I’m up to, staying in the loop about ways to learn along with me, and keeping connected to the other great folks please do stick around! I would love to stay connected – if that feels right to you.
blessings and love,
