Everyone feels it, nobody talks about it: Loneliness The feeling of being disconnected, separate, left behind, and alone can be really hard to sit with. The good news is, loneliness doesn't have to be so painful or shameful. With practice, we can learn to deeply understand our loneliness and approach it with care, gentleness and even gratitude. Sound crazy? Come to @mndflmeditation next Monday night (AUG 20) and lets get into it! Link to tix in bio.

Thanks @swami.journal !

Last night in Brooklyn after spending 10 years in this borough! I only cried about 4.5 times today. Trying to be gentle with myself. Excited to experience Washington Heights, but very sad to leave this place that is so filled with memories. Well- Manhattan- I’ll see you soon! #brooklyn #moving #transitions #endofanera #washingtonheights #waheights

On Monday I’ll be leading a meditation in this gorgeous space at @museumateldridgestreet on the theme, “Sabbath of the mind.” Re-read Heschel’s “The Sabbath” for the occasion. Followed by live music. Come through! Link for tix in bio

“Woke up” this morning after baby refused to sleep all night (hence the quotes) feeling sick and exhausted. While dropping of Zusha at day care, caught sight of this beauty of a Willow tree I had never seen before. It really took my breath away- a tree this big and majestic is such A rare sight in BK. All of the sudden I just noticed what a gorgeous morning it is. It Doesn’t take away the other not-so-pleasant mood- just adds to the whole picture. This is life. ❤️ #mindfulness meditation #mindfulwalking #keepingitreal #momlife #brooklyn #morning

So excited for this rockstar duo training on intersectionality and spirituality at #spiritualdiversitynyu ❤️❤️@nyugsl @marcellarhall @leahjanel

We are so deep in the trenches of baby poop, sleep, and life together. And yet So many times a day, every day, you astonish me with your patience, love, good humor and straight up skills as a father. “Love” doesn’t fully capture it, but it will have to do. Love you Ben. ❤️

...BUT it’s also good to be back at my beloved @mindfulnyu @nyuglobalspirituallife. The last photo includes a small glass cube I received for 10 YEARS of service at @nyuniversity! If you add that to my college years (#nyualumni) I’ve spent almost half of my life in this place. Good thing I love it here ❤️

The end of maternity leave. I miss these beauties so much already.
