"Fluid movement enhances health and well being, and has far-reaching benefits, beyond our capacity to name/'

Emilie Conrad LIFE ON LAND

"Ah YES, I see it now.  The hardening of our bodies deadens us to our home.  We are no longer wet with love.  Love, a mysterious substance moves, like undulating memories, caressing each organ, reminding us, of bottomless one, without boundary, that we are part of this.  We are not separated, we are still one."

Emilie Conrad, LIFE ON LAND

 

  

 

            

Poems

"Close your eyes and follow your breath

to the still place

that leads to the invisible path

that leads you home".

St Teresa of Avila

I've been freed from the self that pretends to be someone,

And in becoming no-one,

I begin to live.  It is worthwhile dying,

to find out what life is."

 T.S. Eliot

    ONLY BREATH

 

Not Christian or Jew or Muslim, not Hindu

Buddhist, Sufi, or zen. Not any religion

or cultural system. I am not from the East
or the West, not out of the ocean or up

from the ground, not natural or ethereal, not
composed of elements at all. I do not exist,

am not an entity in this world or in the next,
did not descend from Adam and Eve or any

origin story. My place is placeless, a trace
of the traceless. Neither body or soul.

I belong to the beloved, have seen the two
worlds as one and that one call to and know,

first, last, outer, inner, only that
breath breathing human being.

Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi

ENOUGH

Enough, these words are enough

if not these words this breath, 

if not this breath, this sitting here.

This opening to life

we have refused again and again

until now.

Until now.
