Hello Dear Readers,
It has been a while, with good reason, but I do miss writing. It has been a tumultuous spring to say the least. Pushing hard to finish school, graduating, throwing a big grad party, moving out of previous apartment, little car accident, resting and recovering… etc. Whoof!
I recently returned from Spring retreat (teachings in Tibetan Buddhism) which was potent and full of blessings as usual. However, I could not overcome my resistance to being there. In the past, this resistance might last a few days but then I could push through it and enjoy the rest of retreat. My mind is definitely not in a clear, “Dharmic” place. Ooph! Hopefully I will have ample opportunity to settle, pause and relax, allowing my mind to rest in what is. But yes, this is a high aspiration indeed!
So now that I am back, I am seeing clients in Craniosacral Bodywork and for Spiritual Astrology interpretations. So let me know if you are interested in either of these modalities.
I am also living with a Buddhist monk for the summer. Technically I think they are not supposed to do this but I think I got grand-fathered in as we were friends before he ordained, and his lama said it was okay in my case (it makes sense to presume that I have multiple previous lives as a Buddhism monk “under my belt,” but this is a whole other story), and I am a sincere practitioner, at least at times. Luckily I tend to imprint upon people I am around, so if I’m around monks and lamas, mind becomes clearer and very easily virtuous. Living with him, I am learning a ton, as he has many texts memorized and I am learning about Vasubhandu and Asanga’s Abhidharma texts. Yay! Tis good to learn.
Well I think that is it for now. Enjoy your summer!
