Start again! I started this blog in 2012 to share my journey through the tumultuous beginnings of my Vipassana adventure. Establishing a daily practice of 2 hours a day was one of the most difficult challenges of my life, but the silver lining and my biggest support throughout this journey has been my now wife, Maria Shelton. I met her 4 years ago under a tree in North Carolina immediately after completing 7 months of service at Dhamma Patapa. Maria knew little about meditation and had never heard of S.N. Goenka, but on that day, she began an amazing journey with me along the path of Dhamma. Maria quickly established a daily practice of Anapana. 2 years later, she bravely relocated with me to Delaware to help support the start Dhamma Delaware. Recently she sat her third 10-day course with me and my Mom (her first course!) at Dhamma Dhara. Last week, she decided to start writing about her journey on this blog. She has some amazing stories to share, so please give her your support as she bravely enters the world of blogging. Time to meditate.
