The journey towards becoming an integrated human being must be approached in awareness of the three basic centers in our make up: the physical, the emotional, and the mental.

Most spiritual paths include tools for all three, but with a strong emphasis on one: Hatha yoga connects us starting from the body, Zen meditation puts the emphasis on observing and calming the mind... music and chanting connect us with heart energy.

Zen, Yoga and Sacred Sound

Each center also has its own kind of “food”, and awareness of this and the quality and quantity of our food intake can help our evolution tremendously.

On the whole, the Path leads us towards a much wider perspective of so called “reality”, and our role in this miraculous movie we call Life: an ever so brief opportunity to experience the vastness of Being, and the mystery of Existence, from this incredible creation that is the Human Body.
