From the heart

Have you ever helped a student reach an 'ah ha' or transformational moment?

My office hours are regularly full. I love to be with Naropa students as they use contemplative practice, study, and ongoing dialogue to recognize and gain confidence in their inherent sanity. Wonderful moments emerge as we consider the possibility that there is nothing fundamentally wrong with us.
