My last class at Sama Yoga was so sweet and beautiful. It was intimate and fun, and we laughed a ton. They all lined up to say bye to me afterward, and one student baked cookies and treats for everyone. I’ll miss all these yogis so much!

Exciting news! Some of you already know this, some of you don’t.

In February, I’m leaving New York to do a residency at a Buddhist monastery, Zen Mountain Center in the San Jacinto mountains of California. I’ll be living the American version of monastic life, doing a work/study to continue my formal Buddhist training, and at the same time working at the center to help maintain it.
My time there is open-ended right now. I’m starting with a month commitment, and after that, if it’s a good fit, I’ll probably commit to a longer period.
In the meantime, I’m kind of in limbo right now as I prepare for this big life change—feeling like I’m not quite here nor there as I leave my partnership in a business of 10 years; as I leave New York, my home for 13 years; say goodbye to friends; and say goodbye to my yoga students. I’m leaving these things behind as I move into a completely new, uncertain experience filled with so many unknowns—will I miss New York? Will I hate monastery life? What about movies, brunches, whiskey, Xbox, and binge-watching Netflix!

It’s in this limbo-space that I’m feeling unsettled and a little ungrounded—a feeling that leaves me a little anxious, but at the same time liberated and excited! Anything can happen now. And it’s here, in this place of unknowing, that I’m feeling really full and complete. I’m looking forward to the future. And New York—I’ll be back!

Like Frodo and Sam, on our way to Mordor. (We came across a bear so it was definitely like going to Mordor.) @jammertron

I don't get many opportunities to be manly. But when I do, I'm moderately so.

Today I start my meditation retreat with the Village Zendo up at the Grail. I'm always excited, nervous, anxious, and relieved (all the things!) before going on retreat. Always curious about what I'll discover, and what I won't discover.
