Becoming Water: Heart Path to Wisdom: Poems on Life, Love, and Awakening Paperback
“Becoming Water” is a manual of sorts. A series of pithy poems inviting the reader to drop beneath the mundane into the ethereal truths of being-ness. The poems are laid out in a linear fashion- LIFE, LOVE, and AWAKENING. First come the wisdom teachings on discernment regarding the practicalities of life. Then on to love- the bridge between the mundane and the infinite. Lastly, the reader is led towards the experiential, a journey to no destination, where everywhere is home and love is arising naturally as an innate element of awakening.
The InWord Meditation Journal
“The Meditation Journal” is built to inspire. Created by long time meditation practitioners and writers, The Meditation Journal combines both simplicity and beauty to create the perfect companion to your daily meditation practice.
The Meditation Journal was custom crafted by Cayce Howe, Senior Meditation Instructor for InsightLA and Psychiatrist Dr. Monisha Vasa. Every aspect was lovingly hand selected in order to design a journal that is beautiful, functional, and portable.
“I have been meditating now for nearly 30 years. The creation and maintenance of a meditation habit takes consistent effort. The Meditation Journal is the perfect tool for this. By tracking my meditations, I find it easier to hold myself accountable, as well as easier to deepen my motivation by looking at past meditation successes. The act of journaling itself also became a meditation, clarifying experiences that had no words. I now see the journal as both an extension of my sitting meditation, as well as a way to quantify my practice. Ultimately meditation is goal-less; yet, having a tangible record can motivate us to practice.” –Cayce Howe, senior meditation teacher for Insight LA
“Combining meditation and journaling makes intuitive sense to me. Our meditation practice deepens our self-awareness, and allows us to cultivate a greater understanding of our thoughts, emotions, body sensations, and life experiences. Being able to take that understanding, and deepen it through journaling allows us to reach greater clarity and wisdom. Furthermore, our very own words can become a source of future meditation, like an ever-evolving spiral that brings us closer to our own truth. I am so glad to now have a beautiful, portable tool that allows us to integrate meditation and writing, and can support the development and tracking of both practices.”
