2014 was a year of change for me.
My wife and I entered the year finalizing plans for a retreat cabin in the San Juan islands, hoping to bring to fruition our dream of having a place for people to spend time devoted to their practice in a quiet, peaceful setting. Those plans were put on hold when we learned in January that we would be expecting our first baby. Things have changed a lot since then.
I got a new job. We had a beautiful daughter. And now we are moving.
It has been a challenging year to practice. Even more challenging to write. It has been a joy for me to be able to share my journey with you, to share a glimpse of my practice. Thank you for supporting me and I look forward to what we share together in 2015.
Here is an overview of 2014.

of your own and others aims!
