I’m a meditation teacher and spiritual counsellor. My professional site is over here. I created this blog because I wanted to have a place to share my own thoughts and experiences on the contemplative path without feeling constrained by issues of professionalism and approachability. It’s meant to be a place to share episodes from my own spiritual journey as well as articles and answers to questions about advanced meditation practice.

I am inspired by the great ecstatic mystics of the past: Ramakrishna, Rebbe Nachman, Saint Teresa, Hafiz, and others. My vision of enlightenment is to fully realize in my own experience that reality is nothing other than endless lovemaking among the tantric threesome of Stillness, Desire, and Dynamism.

Yet, my own path has been seriously influenced by the technical approach to meditation put forward by the Pragmatic Dharma movement. So you might find my writing to be an odd combination of super geeky meditation technicalities and very heart-centred devotional writing.

Hope you like it! I love comments, so please post!

  1. LOVE your blog! You might enjoy this quote from my teacher Mark Whitwell:

    “The erotic intimacy between Krishna and Radha, which was secret (and therefore seen as illicit), came to stand for the powerful attraction of the soul to God. What the ancient metaphor is really saying is that your relationship with Source Reality is extremely private, deeply personal, and utterly passionate. I want you to be besotted with Source Reality, to love your life as passionately as you would a secret lover. And I’m promising you that you can.”

    (From his book “The Promise of Love, Sex and Intimacy.”)

  2. Bruno said that the life’s difficulties exist as erotic frictions for creation… Your site looks interesting Mystical B, but I can’t help be put off by the fact that you can’t be fucked – pun intended – to respond to the above comment from Jamie Brown. I have no idea who Jamie is but he/she has gone to the trouble to leave a nice comment and you ignore it. Get your shit together lover. Onanism?

  3. Great to hear you’ve been in touch with Jamie, MB. And thanks for the graceful response to me. I presume you had your reasons for not responding to Jamie in the comments thread.
