Why is the site called The Mountain and the Sea?
Both the mountain and the sea are common symbols used in many meditations.
From the depths of the oceans, deep below the surface, we are reminded that we, too, have a place of calm and stillness within us. It makes no difference to the deep waters if the surface mirrors the sky in a perfect replica or if huge waves roll across it. The depths of the sea are still tranquil, calm and peaceful.
The mountain can teach us that we, too, are gounded and unshakeable, regardless of what is going on around us. The mountain doesn’t concern itself with whether the sun warms it’s sides or if the snow lies heavy, covering all. It takes the changing weather in stride, just as we can take the natural comings and goings of life with equanimity.
