This is Carina.
Michael left beautifully and peacefully last night. There was joy and release in his time of transformation.
Unfathomable. Heart opening. Mind grasping for knowing every unknowable.
Deep feelings of peace.
A blue heron landed on our deck
Another at the oceans edge
Three turns of the earth
Always in a moment
His nose
Face of a Buddha
A hand on my shoulder
Gate gate paragate parasamgate bodhisvaha
Prajna heart sutra
Thank you for your love and practice

Dear Michael’s Friends, Students, and Loved Ones,

Thank you all for your love and support for Michael during this difficult time. We are writing to keep you informed of what is happening.

On Thursday night Michael didn’t return from a day trip to town. He was taken to the hospital in a coma and had lost all brain function by the time he arrived. His body has been kept on life support over the weekend while his family came to say their goodbyes and surround him with love. He will remain on life support until tonight (Sunday) between 8 pm and 1 am Pacific Time. If you can practice and send love and blessings in whatever way you can during that time, it would be a welcome and loving support to Michael and all of us.

We are still piecing together what happened and will need some time to learn, process and share more with you. In the meantime, we would appreciate your patience, understanding, and support as we move through this experience.

With Immense Love,
Carina and Jayme

This is Carina Stone. Message to everyone who loves our Michael. He is between worlds right now. Sit, feel, cry, stand up and move your body. Feel his love, it’s huge.

Life and death are of supreme importance
Time passes swiftly and opportunity is lost
Let us awaken, awaken

Do not squander your life

May all beings be happy
May all beings be healthy
May all beings be safe and free from danger
May all beings be free from their ancient and twisted patterns
May all beings be free from every form of suffering

He is the most generous, loving person I have known. I am grateful, I am sad. We are connected.

Love
Carina
