Our practice is about remembering: remembering to come back to the breath, remembering that we are not our thoughts and experiences, remembering to attend to the body with kind awareness—that the present is the only place where the body resides.

Remembering that we are impermanent beings who are only visiting this realm of materiality for a moment in time, and that there will be others to come after us.

Remembering that our lives, and the earthly experiences of everyone and everything around and above us, below us and within us, are sacred—that we are all part of a jeweled web of interconnection and interdependence.
