Joan Tollifson ‘Painting the Sidewalk with Water’ Interview by Renate McNay
She is the author of ‘Bare-Bones Meditation: Waking Up from the Story of My Life’, ‘Awake in the Heartland’, ‘Painting the Sidewalk with Water’ and ‘Nothing to Grasp’.
Joan points to the most obvious and impossible to avoid: the ever-present, ever-changing present moment. She also talks about her disability and compulsive, habitual behaviour and her biggest relief… that there is nowhere to go and nothing to become.
Toni Packer was her Teacher.
