For me to be able to present a workshop based on early mindfulness teachings is a big thrill. The material at the time was so juicy, and it still is. It's about making everyday life the root of your dharma practice, not just incidental events that happen while you're trying to get enlightened.
I grew up knowing Pema Chodron (the second most popular Buddhist in America, after that Dalai Lama guy). Or, rather, she knew me (I was just a little kid running around not paying attention to anything).
Get thee to an eco meditation cushion, if only for a few minutes each morning before the day's madness ensues, and if you need a jump-start of inspiration or a little training, check out one of these Buddhist teachers.
