Hello, I hope you and yours are well.

Before today’s meditation, I offer a few thoughts on the Middle Way, as Buddhism is sometimes referred to. No one has to be a Buddhist to benefit from contemplating this middle way. What is it in the middle of? What does it mean to me and my practice? Have a listen and let me know what you think.

If you want to take a deeper dive, here is a whole book you can download for free, authored by an esteemed teacher, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche.

With love,

    Thank you, Susan! My thought for today is that you will never regret learning about the dharma at taking a few moments to rest in it each day.

    Thank you so much, Susan. You’ve described what the middle way is not, neither this nor that, but is there a way to say what the middle way actually is?

      I wish there was! Starting with what it is not might help. Xo S
