Welcome! You’ve happened upon the front door of a Hidden Monastery dedicated the mystic wisdom of body and soul especially as found in music, dance, poetry, art, meditation, writing and compassionate witness. When we put body first, soul shows up in a very clear way.

As a teacher I uplift spiritual intelligence. The way I do this is to start with the body. Oddly, this can put our thinking on its head. Here is a sample meditation on “The Art of Being Ensouled.”

If you are in search of solace, there are guides in the online dance chapel. Or link to Clarissa Estes Pinkola’s Letter to Brave Souls in Times Like These.

If you are tired of explaining yourself, want to live by the wisdom of your soul, or to express more of who you are, I am your guestmaster. I offer my prayers, especially for those who host other hidden monasteries. See my prayer here. Thank you for visiting.
