how to go wherever the wind blows

By Annette Diamantopoulos | Oct 31, 2018

  if there’s one thing i’ve learned in this zig-zag, upside down life it’s that i can fly!   i’ve always been fascinated by energy – the way it can push us through the atmosphere into space or short us out – inspired and expired — the way nature seems to effortlessly transform and bind…

these words no longer i am

By Annette Diamantopoulos | Sep 23, 2018

  “again I’m within myself. i walked away, but here i come sailing back, feet in the air, upside-down, as a saint when he opens his eyes from prayer: now. the room, the tablecloth, familiar faces… listen, if you can stand to. union with the friend means not being who you’ve been, being instead silence:…

throwing-up on the page: binging and purging on shame

By Annette Diamantopoulos | Aug 29, 2018

  what ever was inside roared the deepest roar ever, releasing the loneliness, the anger and fear.  it was shame and it came spilling onto the page as i thrust my hand deeper down my throat.   there’s no take–backsies in life – no undoing – no binging on soft serve and purging regret.   this…

By Annette Diamantopoulos | Aug 1, 2018

  i am humbled and amazed by the many opportunities to feel uncomfortable – to risk in order to find the balance between what my heart longs for and what my mind needs.    i teach the skills that support wellbeing – awareness and attention — mindfulness.  and, i do this by introducing individuals, groups and systems to new ways…

chaos and the becoming of sound

By Annette Diamantopoulos | May 13, 2018

sinkholes, potholes and assholes: navigating drama on the road of happiness

By Annette Diamantopoulos | Apr 22, 2018

it’s been a long, crooked road. it’s been a long crooked life!   life, as it turns out, is not a straight line.   it zig-zags from here to there and from there to here … races up only to plunge back down and, often, as my young students like to point out, it feels like…

the joy of awakening and the ascension of sound

By Annette Diamantopoulos | Mar 25, 2018

transformation. it beckons me so … to stand up tall and face the sun – to be what is necessary – to accept what will become.   there’s something in the spring – an excitement – anticipation.   all around nature is erupting.   the curious crocus bursts through winter’s slumber, squirrels scurry about with unearthed wonders and…

no thing: the falling away of who you think you are

By Annette Diamantopoulos | Mar 8, 2018

  the snow is falling gently – silently – a reverie of death reminding me of the cycle of life – that birth follows death – that i have been here before.   you are not who you think you are. you are not your clothes, or the car you drive – what you live…
