Monday Night Class is the longest running meditation class in the Princeton area. Venues have changed, students have come and gone, and my focus has shifted. The teachings, practice, and basic tenets however, always remain the same:
- I remain convinced that a regular meditation practice is one of the great weapons of transformational work and that chanting Sanskrit mantras infuses that work with incredible power and delight.
- My instincts tell me that at this particular moment of history, as we struggle with a patriarchal mindset that damages men and women, the metaphor of Devi, the Goddess, offers powerful balancing medicine for the soul.
- I remain in awe of the depth and beauty of India’s Tantric tradition. It may well be the first and most complete system of archetypal psychology, pre-dating Jung by several hundred years. And more than psychology, it’s a sacred technology designed to break the heart wide open -and in that breaking, we discover our divine humanity — sacred immanence, vibrating luminosity, pulsating divinity, in every cell.
- I have no doubt that everything we’re searching for is inside of us.

I loved the phrases you used in a recent e-mail about our upcoming class:
“As usual, we’ll be unpacking this nugget of the mystery —
and more importantly, entering directly into that Mystery —
through the sublime portals of Mantra, Kirtan, and Meditation.”
An incredibly beautiful way to put it. And amazing as it sounds, this is exactly what we do in class. The mystery is right here, hoping we’ll walk right in, experience it, and make it our own, a part of our everyday selves.
Thanks Lucy. What a rare gift you are…
WOW- what a beautiful and fascinating BLOG. I don’t know how I missed it all these years (deep apologies for that). As usual, inspiring, calming and deep. WOW.
I utterly love the music track you and Dan are working on. It sounds divine. Justine
