Rubi’s a little behind the curve today — I was away for the weekend at an amazing workshop on the Enneagram. Upside: came home full to the brim, truly moved, and satisfied. Downside: much catching up required on the homefront.

But I do want to send my love and prayers to everyone in Japan. In a previous version of my life, I traveled there regularly for business, and fell in love with the beautiful country and the kind, generous people. I’ve often said it was the only place in Asia I could see myself living. A big part of my heart is there — and I’m very relieved that my friends are all well, out of harm’s way.

Please do what you can to help. If monetary support isn’t possible, remember that prayer, lovingkindness meditation, or positive visualization also go a long way toward healing.
