2 Years of Blogging!

I started this blog 2 years ago, and I’m proud to say that I’ve written at least once a week for 104 weeks straight. I started writing because I needed a way to process through my Vipassana experience. Shortly after I started publishing my blog because I felt so alone in my journey, and I didn’t want others to feel quite as isolated. After several more months I invited some new authors to the blog to share their unique perspectives and journeys. Living Vipassana has had writers of all different ages and ethnicities bringing together a diverse community all walking along the same path.

Throughout this process, I’ve witnessed the benefit of both reading and writing this blog. We’re not here to tell people how to practice or what they should be experiencing. We simply want to share our path with the hope that it might help your path. I’m going to step away from writing for sometime, but I would like to invite new writers to contact me (ryanshelton7@yahoo.com) if they are interested in contributing to this project. Thank you and metta to everyone who has supported my journey, my practice, and our blog! I’m sure the writing bug will bite me again, so let’s just say, until next time. Time to meditate.

About Ryan Shelton

While I'm currently married to a beautiful woman while teaching physics at Padua Academy, these descriptors fail to capture the totality of my adventurous life. I have hiked over 1700 miles, traveled to 5 continents, managed a bakery, started a meditation center, counseled troubled teens, attended Duke, UNC, and Harvard, protected forests as a wildland firefighter, volunteered thousands of hours with Americorps, rafted the Grand Canyon, SCUBA dived on the Great Barrier Reef, and continues to find new adventures. I hope my writing encourages you to pursue your dreams and be the best version of yourself while supporting your communities to work together to solve the current challenges in our world.
