St. Paul (in the first century) wrote, “I pray that you may have the power to comprehend how high and wide, long and deep is the love of Christ, and that you may know this love that transcends all understanding so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”  St. Bernard of Clairvaux (twelfth century) said, God is “the stone in the stone, the tree in the tree.”

And so, God is the heart in our hearts, nearer then than our next breath!  And God is all around us if we have eyes to see and ears to hear.

My aim is to invite active people around the world to experience God in the midst of their daily lives —whether they are changing diapers, arguing a case before a jury, painting a wall, or walking in the woods.  My aim is to inspire those whose desire for God has been awakened for one reason or another to experience what saints and mystics have known of God throughout the ages—intimacy with the Great Holy Lover.  And by doing so, I want to inspire them to find their own way to live focused, happy, and compassionate lives in our turbulent world through contemplative practices.
