When Bad Things Happen to Good Meditators


As it turns out, if you meditate long enough the devils of self-criticism and fear may decide to make an appearance.  In my reading about meditation I had come across allusions to this but I didn't pay attention, in part because I couldn't imagine it.  Meditation had either offered me some gifts of clarity or it seemed absolutely innocuous.  Most mornings when I meditate nothing much happens.  My mind races  - I forget to focus - I return to focus - I forget, I return.   The bell rings, my to-do list is ready, the day begins.  Devils, schmevils what could go wrong?

I met Doyle Canning (BA EDU '02) this fall during the National Day of Mourning in Plymouth, Massachusetts. The Day of Mourning is organized every year on Thanksgiving by the United American Indians of New England and builds a powerful counter-narrative about Thanksgiving.

Rahna Reiko Rizzuto: On the Birth of Clockhouse

On November 1st, a new national literary journal was born.  Clockhouse was the dream of two of my master’s degree candidates in the MFA in Creative Writing program my very first semester teaching at Goddard.  Led by a group of alumni, editorially-independent, the journal they imagined was nevertheless essentially of Goddard, for Goddard; you could even say it was a gift to the college and the program they grew out of and loved.
