Family Practice

By Diane Roome Our Family Day of Mindfulness at Green Gulch Farm is still with us, and will always remain as a little pool of clarity in our memories.


Despite his initial uncertainty, our son Alex warmed to some of the ideas we encountered. I read him a little allegory about one-pointedness last night, and he got it! For Ben, everything seemed rather natural, I think. He told me some time ago he wanted to learn to meditate, and our day definitely helped him on his way. My husband and I both feel much better as a result of our visit. The potato planting, the carpenteria californica, the discussion, the quiet sitting, the delicious carrot soup, the songs—all gave us a lovely sense of harmony.

Diane Roome lives in Mountain View, California.
