Welcome To The Work As Meditation Newsletter: A Way To Stay In The Practice Of The Work

I hate feeling like I have to do something.

I love The Work. But even The Work can become a burden when I push myself.

However, not doing The Work is also no fun. When I don’t do The Work at all, my stressful stories accumulate. What is needed is a gentle reminder system.
