In the near future I will begin a series of BLOGS on my Lifeskills course, “Living @5: A Spiritual Course in Thought and Time.” I created this course to teach concepts for healthy living to inmates at a local county jail. I have been teaching this daily (well most days) for over 5 years. The skills taught are so badly needed in today’s environment. As I recently read in a comment by the Dalai Lama: “The roots of our society are rotten.” (Essential Teachings of the Dalai Lama -Introduction and on back cover). My “Living @5 Tree” addresses the rotten roots. More – much more- to come.
