everything happens

April 14th, 2010

It doesn’t look like anything happens in those torturous few minutes of motionlessness. But everything happens when you meditate. Whole worlds are dismantled, innumerable scores are settled, grievous deeds are undone, and the entire universe settles at rest.

Please click here and read an exclusive excerpt from Hand Wash Cold featured by my good friends at Shambhala Sun magazine. Then, everything happens. I’ll award a signed book to one commenter on their post by this Saturday, April 17.


  1. I love this.

  3. I won’t pop over to read the excerpt, because I’m delighted that I finally found my own copy of the book (uptake slow here in Canada!) and it’s sitting eagerly waiting my attention on my nightstand.
