THEME: Giving
MEDITATION: Silent Illumination
INTERACTIVE PRACTICE: The Natural Generosity of Presence

The television told me the holidays are a time of giving; who am I to argue? There are at least two interesting and related questions here. The first: what do we want to give? I mean, beyond the stocking stuffers and the Chapters-Indigo Gift Certificates, what non-material thing do we want to give to the people in our lives and, perhaps, the people beyond them? And a second question: what do we need in order to be able to give these things? Obviously we’re not just talking about coupons and bank balances here. Today we explore our inner resources – presence, not presents.
