On & Off the Cushion

Most writing on spiritual practice focuses on \”On the Cushion\” time.  That\’s the practice, but without putting practice into practice, it\’s wasted.  It is easier to find calm in a quiet room, so start there.  But unless I can keep at least some of that calm through my work in the world, I start my practice from the same place each time.  So I still sit in meditation, typically two half-hour periods per day.  But in many ways, the real practice comes in the time off the cushion.
