Wish you were here

July 24th, 2008

This weekend I’ll be reading here, then packing up for a weeklong retreat here, and after I get back, speaking to a group of parents here.

You’re welcome to join me wherever I go. Do give serious thought to coming here this Saturday for an intimate gathering as I read and sign Momma Zen. Every guest is guaranteed a triple shot of bliss!

In case you ever give serious thought to going on retreat like me, you should know that a meditation retreat is not really the kind of retreat we wish for, but a startling immersion in full-contact living. You probably have no idea what you’ve been missing, and you will never be the same. You can read about why I do it here, what it’s like here, and what I find when I come back right here.

Since I’ll be gone for so long, I’ll be re-posting personal favorites like the ones here, here, and here. Be sure to check back here for the announcement of this week’s giveaway winner after this Friday.

And anytime you’re here, come into my backyard for a one-on-one. I’m always here and wishing you were too!


  1. Oh, I wish that I could be there!

  2. Have a wonderful retreat! Your backyard is sensational. I watched your little video and really enjoyed it.

    Pasadena is not very far from me.(as you know:)) Maybe I will be able to make it up there for one of your readings, someday.

  3. One day I will be there. Right now I’ve got to work on being here.

    And I wish I could answer the question you left at my place. But like I said over there–I don’t know where to begin.

  5. Wandered on over here at the suggestion of Kristin from JilliJava…She told me you were training for a marathon and so am I. It’s nice to “meet” you!
