ILLUMINATIONS . . .
is a newsletter I publish "every now & then" on mindfulness, compassion and creativity.
It supports coursework taught by the San Francisco Zen Center on managing depression & anxiety through mindfulness and self-compassion practices, and also includes content on creativity and means for AWAKENING JOY! It's available to anyone interested and currently reaches several thousand people from all walks of life.
On the right are links to past issues of ILLUMINATIONS. See if a title captures your attention. Click on it to read. And feel free to subscribe. It's free.
I always welcome hearing from readers, and hope you'll write me if you subscribe and read something that opens up your world in a new or useful way.
