  • This is my new classroom setup in my family home in South Florida, where I am sheltering in place with my mom and three sisters. I'm just about to start writing my strand paper for my Lotus Sutra class. I've written out a detailed outline about exploring the theme of faith, or confidence, and its characteristics; and, I hope to learn how to cultivate confidence within myself after finishing my paper! I keep some parting gifts on my desk, a bamboo scroll with the Heart Sutra on it from one of my professors, a cat alebrije from Mexico from my classmate, and a necklace with the Shurangama Mantra inside which hangs from my desk lamp. –Xuan Ooi
  • At a time when death is on everyone’s mind, I think it’s important to treasure the life around us. This is Gorey. He’s an air plant. I named him after my favorite poet, Edward Gorey. He lives in a special tea cup on my window sill, where he can bask in the sun. When I need to ground myself, I take him out and hold him in my hands while I meditate. Yes, the world can be dangerous and scary. But I can do this much. I can nurture this little life. –Phoenix Winters
