"The master's tools will never dismantle the master's house." Audre Lorde 

Dear we begin to emerge out of our lives of solitude and back into the world of socializing and being with other humans, we might find ourselves asking questions like, "Who's clothes are these hanging in my closet?"  or "Why are my shoes so small?"  (#ThatBarefootLife). And as we begin to hang out with folks again, we might be saying, "Hu, so THESE are my friends...interesting choice!"

This question of belonging;  in our social circles and even belonging in our own skin, is really up for folks right now, so no, you are not alone! 

This week I'm offering some teachings on Anatta: The Unreliability of Self  with Boston Meditation Center and a Day of Practice with Sangha Live, as we dive into the tenderness of our emotional lives.

I'd love to know what you're exploring / fearing / unearthing, about who you be in the world right now. You can find me on IG 
@TheRealBookerProject or follow me on my new Facebook page....I'll be taking down my personal FB page soon.

A Day of Practice with Sangha Live
July 17th 
7-10am PDT |10am-1pm EDT | 3-6pm BST | 4-7pm CEST

Being present to the depth and breadth of our emotional life is needed for us to understand and feel into the fullness of this human form. And so often, we can feel ostracized and alone when we feel or express anything other than happiness and contentment; as if having an emotional life is a personal failing, or that we are broken.
Join me for a Day of Practice with Sangha Live as we unpack tend to our emotional lives.
