A Little Help From My Friends

Dear Friends, 

This is a happy moment. Many of you have been following my healing journey over the past few years and some of you for my entire life. I'm completely in awe of the support I recieve from loved ones, and forever grateful. In an effort to continue to deepen my understanding of Dharma & Mindfulness practice I'm interested in an extended stay with my Brothers & Sisters at Blue Cliff Monastery in Pine Bush, NY before hitting the road and moving back to my home in Austin, Texas. If you don't know who the amazing souls are that live and pracitce at Blue Cliff please follow this link to learn more: www.bluecliffmonastery.org
I've practiced with the community at Blue Cliff twice now during the young adult retreat in 2013 and 2014. My experiences of healing during these weeks at Blue Cliff are beyond words. In short I'm completely inspired to return here for an extended stay to learn, grow, and heal before returning into the world to share my deep connections and quivering heart. 

I've been through many traumatic experiences in my short life and I feel it is my duty to learn how to heal past wounds and share that with the world. This is my ultimate mission, and I need your help. 

In order to practice at Blue Cliff for an exteded period before moving I need to help covering expenses involved. I'm asking my friends to contribute any amount they can that would enable me to take time away and practice in a supportive community setting. Retreat practice means a lot to me and also any help offered means the world as well. If you can only offer $1 that is enough. You are needed and loved. 

If I've ever helped you in any way. If you ever have been inspried by what I share, please consider helping me deepen my practice so that I may continue to share the good news of life with the world. We can all heal one breath at a time.

A Lotus For You,



If all goes according to plan I will entire retreat for the month of June. I would love for my New York area friends to visit me during my stay. The Monastery is open to the public on Thursdays and Sundays for a day of mindfulness. <3
