Kidder Brook Falls – A Two Minute Meditation

Posted by in Meditation Videos, Meditations, Waterfalls

Kidder Brook Falls is in Warwick, MA not far from Royalston. I had sketchy directions, so getting here was a challenge, but the area is beautiful. If you visit, compare sources for directions and maybe connect to someone local who can help.  There is not a clear path to the falls, but they are close to the convergence of two well marked fire road/trails.

Helen Hunt Falls – A Two Minute Meditation

Posted by in Meditation Videos, Meditations, Waterfalls

A Calendar Of Sonnets: July – by Helen Hunt Jackson Some flowers are withered and some joys have died; The garden reeks with an East Indian scent From beds where gillyflowers stand weak and spent; The white heat pales the skies from side to side; But in still lakes and rivers, cool, content, Like starry blooms on a new firmament, White lilies float and regally abide. In vain the cruel skies their hot rays shed; The lily does not feel their brazen glare. In vain the pallid clouds refuse to share…read more

Mind (Dry Ice) – A One Minute Meditation

Posted by in Meditation Videos, Meditations

Mind (Dry Ice) My teacher once said “all is mind.” Such beautiful nonsense seeing Everest’s bitter cold aside a summer dumpster. Mind is all of a fool And so there is truth in it.

Fall of Songs – A Two Minute Meditation

Posted by in Meditation Videos, Meditations, Waterfalls

The Trip Fall of Songs waterfall is on the property of the Castle in the Clouds in Moultonborough, NH in the Lake Winnipesaukee region.  If you use the New England Waterfalls book for directions, as of July 2015, the price of admission to see the falls is now the full admission price.  In the book (published in 2010) they noted a smaller entrance fee for the falls only.  That’s no longer the case. Of course, being on a waterfall mission, I paid and went on. For the casual waterfall chaser, it was fairly pricey – $16….read more

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.
