Life may seem a little crazy for you -- there certainly are good astrological reasons for feeling harried and stressed -- so I'm offering a particular perspective (along with a set of tools) that may just bring enough succor to gain footing in bliss, joy and ecstasy.

My goal is to offer astrological and Tarot readings, combined with dreamwork and intuitive insight, as mediums through with clarity comes to the surface of our awareness.  Plans are also in the works for weekend retreats (possibly longer), workshops and teaching presentations.  This alone may be enough to satisfy your current needs -- knowing that certain cycles and patterns are alive in your life, so that you may adjust your beliefs, thoughts and emotions accordingly.

On the other hand, you may be moved to initiate more radical changes in your daily existence -- changes that lead to a rigorous and skillful ecstatic contemplative practice, around which the other elements of your life are arranged.  So, the second aspect of my goal here is to build a support community -- local and international -- designed to assist contemplatives in their practices.  An ongoing group meditation practice is being planned for those who live in or near Boulder.

So, if you've been led to read these words, you may just be thinking in terms of Big Change.  You are to be congratulated on your willingness to pass through the straight gate in order to follow the narrow way.

It's good to know you.

Michael Hawkins is one of the most advance contemplatives I have ever met. He is also one of the kindest and gentlest souls I have met as well, and he has a brilliant mind. I am sure any dedicated contemplative and student of Asian and contemplative philosophy would be very interested in reading what he has to say, attending his weekly meditation classes and his periodic meditation retreats.

Thank you so much for the kind words, Jhananda. As always, I live in daily appreciation for the "unpacking" work you've done for modern ecstatics, and for you continuing encouragement to those of us who have chosen the contemplative life.

Love and blessings,
