hello,

Instead of a cross-country road trip, this summer we took our kids to Plum Village, a Buddhist monastery in southwest France founded by Thich Nhat Hanh, a Zen Master. Faced with pandemic stress, we were on screens too much, taxed by relentless to-dos, and felt increasingly dissatisfied. Teetering on parental burn-out, we were craving peace, time away from devices, and strategies to handle increasingly uncertain times. It’s a stretch to sign up 9-year-old and 12-year-old boys for a week of mindful walking, silent meals, and sitting meditation. We were willing to take the leap if it could reconnect us and help us find our grounding as a family again. In this episode, I share with you 6 lessons and related practices helping us to restore our homeostasis and how you can try them at home.
