Essence of Refuge

Live Simply

Wake up early. Expose your body and your soul to the early, predawn chill air. Stand there, one second, observing the sunrise. You will fill energized, ready for what comes next.


Then, go inside, into the refuge, make a small fire. Quietly arrange the wood inside the iron stove, light up the match, and get the fire going. Still remaining quiet, prepare the coffee. Place the ground coffee inside the maker, add water.

As the fire gets stronger, warming up the small shelter, place the coffee on top. And wait. Remain quiet, inside of you.


Once the coffee is ready, pour it. Share it. Enjoy it.

By then, your body and your soul will be ready.
