Here are some essays written in answer to questions or common concerns. Please enjoy and feel free to contact me with questions or comments. The essays each have little titles and blurbs that explain what they are about and then can be read on their own. Or, you can read them in clusters. The essays on meditation all go together and should be read consecutively, for example, but you could also read the last essay on meditation and the essay on intersubjectivity together as a kind of study guide for bringing your practices and your awakening into the world of others. Finally, there is the first essay entitled, "Why I Write and How I Think You Should Read Me," which I apparently think you should read first. Please start with that one if in doubt.
