Poetry is a powerful way to connect with the heart of the experience of Mindfulness. I use poetry often in my teaching and here are a few of the many that touch me. They offer a deep sense of this path that we are all on together.

May they inspire you and bring you closer to the wonder of living a mindful and compassionate life.



These few words

Are enough.

If not these words,

This breath,

If not this breath,

This sitting here,

This opening to the

Life we have refused

Again and again

Until now.
