Laurie went through a series of losses. She withdrew from the world, isolating herself more and more. She continued to study with many different teachers, but she became more reclusive and isolated.
She eventually saw how disconnected she was, from the world around her and from herself. She drew all on she had studied, and created a morning mindfulness practice. The core of the practice was going outside every day to the same spot and sitting there for at least 20 minutes.
But sitting for at least 20 minutes was not Laurie’s problem. She loved sitting there so much that she had to set an alarm to remind her to go in, sometimes sitting as long as 2 hours. Her feeling of connection was coming back, bringing her to tears every day for the first two years.
Laurie shares in beautiful detail how she practices today, the influences that have meant the most to her, and the deep connection she has regain with herself and the world around her.
