Shukke, a Japanese term that means “to leave home” or “to leave home life behind”. It is typically associated with monks as they prepare for a monastic life.
Shukke has a lot of significance at this moment in my life, because it captures the journey of leaving behind an incomplete version of myself in order to become an inclusive self. A self that is both personal and universal. A self capable of developing a deep connection to everything that exist in the universe and the most intimate aspects of my being.
