Being connected no matter what

There is a group that I've been a part of for a variety of reasons and one of the goals of their practices is 'being connected no matter what'. That has fostered some interested conversations - including about what it means to feel connected. There was something Alan Watts wrote, the more you know y...

Various answers were thrown about... exercise, sex, work etc. But then also the thought was thrown in th...
