Subtle Breath

“Our breathing pattern was formed in relation to our childhood environment. But we cannot be present in ourselves unless we breathe the air that is here now.” – Judith Blackstone

Subtle Perception

“All of the sights, sounds, tastes, smells, and textures of each moment seem to arise directly out of the empty space, without any effort on our part to perceive them.” – Judith Blackstone


“Our whole being will be reflected in the timbre of our voice, in the way we touch or move.” – Judith Blackstone

Fundamental Consciousness

“We can experience ourselves as the one light, the undivided consciousness that is the ground of our being, and of all being.”  – Judith Blackstone

Standing and Moving

“The Zen master can see, in [the] hermit’s gesture, the depth of his practice. … The hermit is present in his arms. His body and his mind have become one.” – Judith Blackstone
