“We come home to our Heart of Wisdom through turning our attention inward, to the knowing presence which precedes words and language that divide the world into pieces. This space of awareness is not-space, is outside of time and includes everything.


Like everyone, as I grew up and life went along, I began to believe that wholeness was divided, and my mind became fractured into “I am this” and “I am not that”, and I felt lost in confusion and doubt. My heart kept calling me home, and there are countless ways that life, at times gently, at other times harshly has led me there. I have deep, joyful gratitude for my teachers and companions.


The journey inward to the Heart of Wisdom is the most intimate and personal work we do, and at the same time is interdependent with our spiritual friends and with every living being. Love, curiosity, playfulness, integrity, courage and the deep desire to know truth are inner beacons. Living the Heart of Wisdom is a dance of authenticity that is always beginning, changing, vanishing and emerging within our deep, intimate, fearless engagement.”  -Daryl Lynn Ross
