I no longer check my main work email, and I don’t check social media either. Instead, I have a team who read and respond to each note, and who share letters with me on a regular basis.
I’m grateful to everyone who reaches out. Every time I read about how practice has helped some real person, it stops me in my tracks. Thank you for writing.
I have three primary ways of engaging with my community. One is through in-person retreats. Another is through my weekly Sunday Do Nothing Project on YouTube, where I guide a live meditation and people say hello in the chat and I sometimes respond to questions etc. The last one is on Substack with Home Base – my blog and studio for creating and sharing free meditations. Each week I write about, er, some aspect of existing, accompanied by a short guided meditation that anyone can listen to. Occasionally I respond to people’s comments there.
