At age 19 I had already lived in Thailand for 2 years. During my first year of university I was paired with a wonderful roommate who introduced me to some Buddhist principles and had told me she’d gone to several meditation retreats including a 10-day silent meditation retreat in the province of Surat Thani. As it turned out, Suan Mokkh was one of the few that offered an English-speaking retreat. And so, as one odd 19 year-old I hopped on a train that following summer to Suan Mokkh. […]
It’s Holiday Season and at this time of the year we always like to encourage our yogis to stay centred, stay grounded, and remember what matters most: kindness and compassion for all beings.

I’d like to start off by underlining the fact that when my husband Eric and I decided to plant an organic apple orchard I was in my mid twenties, so in general, there were a lot of things that I didn’t know. But what I have learned in the last 15 years, and continue to learn every day about agriculture and the way conventional, mass market food is grown blows my mind. […]
