Buffalo Creek Falls – A Two Minute Meditation

Posted by in Meditation Videos, Meditations, Waterfalls

My visit to Wellington Lake and Buffalo Creek Falls felt like the most authentic Colorado Rockies experience of my entire trip in July 2016. 13 miles of dirt roads after 40 or so long and winding ones through Pike National Forest surrounded by the breathtaking majesty of the these mountains brought me to this little camping area under the shadow of Castle Mountain.  The hike was an easy, pleasurable one, but always cautious of the bear that many signposts made clear were nearby. It was highlighted by several species of butterfly I’d never seen in the…read more

Beede Falls – A Two Minute Meditation

Posted by in Authors, Meditation Videos, Meditations, Waterfalls

. The trip to Beede Falls was one of several waterfalls I visited in the Winnipesaukee area the weekend of July 4th 2016.  This is a lovely little falls with a big shallow pool to cool off in on a hot summer day.  It’s a little off the beaten path, but a nice visit if you’re in the area. The nearby town of Center Sandwich is also lovely. The falls themselves drop over a ledge allowing you to sit behind the water and look outward.  It’s something of a secret hideaway.  Meditation…read more

Wellington Lake – A One Minute Meditation

Posted by in Authors, Meditation Videos, Meditations

. This time lapse of the clouds passing over Wellington Lake inn Bailey Colorado was taken in July 2016 on a trip to Northern New Mexico by way of Denver.  The trip getting there was absolutely stunning. Driving north from Colorado Springs through Pike National Forest is a beautiful way to experience the Rocky Mountains. I recommend it highly.

Briggs Brook Falls – A Minute Meditation

Posted by in Authors, Meditation Videos, Meditations

. Briggs Brook Falls was flowing very lightly on Memorial Day 2016, perhaps underrepresenting the potential beauty and awe that a waterfall typically offers. But the short hike and (unnecessary) bushwhack offered its own insights and foibles.  The Saturday afternoon I visited was the first 90 degree day as well as the first real buggy hike of the year.  I quickly regretted forgetting to bring bug spray.  It’s remarkable that the video I shot wasn’t overly filled with the hundreds of mosquitos that filled the air in my immediate vicinity. Poor judgement…read more

October’s Last Leaves – A Two Minute Meditation

Posted by in Meditation Videos, Meditations

. Through Samhain’s shimmering veil the word becomes flesh. Our ancestors speak to us in the body. With each accumulated memory autumn’s shift viscerally provokes remembrance. Each leaf’s shiver invokes real, yet hollow pangs from stiffly held joints. The fading of summer green into winter’s muted, odorless hues lades the mind with the passing of seasons. Return, my old friend to the freedom of an open heart. The vices of rigidity are turned by the forged chains of desire. Let the fire and spirits consume and set you free. Leaves…read more
