"You do not have to be a monk to train like a monk,
but you have to train like a monk."
"The Monks devotion to a life of meditation, contemplation and prayer is central, and informs his or her understanding of the Ancient Texts. This is the only reason why he or she begins their day in serene meditation and prayer, until their entire life is serene and a prayer for all sentient beings." - Seijaku Roshi

"INCH BY INCH"
Why are we so impatient when it comes to life and what we want to accomplish?
Learning Patience is essential, the pacing of life little by little. We are not here to find Heaven on Earth. We are here to release Heaven by living slowly and deliberately, without fear, on Earth.
How do we accomplish this?
What Spiritual practices are involved? Can we learn to Love?
Join Chimon as he guides and advises us on this path.

"LIVING YOUR LIFE AS A VOW:
What does it mean to live Your Life as A Vow?
While livining morally is as important as any commitment to meditation and mindfulness, our focus is rooted in our daily living, including our interactions with others and our daily responsibilities; our habitual distractions, addictions, attachments and desires become the ground for liberating ourselves from our discontentment and their real causes.
