Welcome! I’m Lorne Blumer.
Most days I sit on a meditation cushion, and some days I add to this blog, which takes the form of spiritual reportage. It’s my effort to offer renderings of my experience with specific practices as I wander through my hometowns* and the wider world, or simply try to stop long enough to see what’s right before me.
When not blogging, you might find me on a meditation cushion, leading Hineinu, a community for Jewish contemplative practice, working on a book, or on a Masters in Pastoral Studies (exploring chaplaincy as a next career). But mostly, I reside in the day-to-day, remembering now and again to attune to wonder and curiosity.
Hope you enjoy the ride.
* Quick Math: my hometowns = Toronto (live there) + Montreal (born there, and back frequently) + New Orleans (visit at least annually, and am not infrequently informed it’s where I really ought to be)
