Returning from the Mountain

I’m back from my retreat at Spirit Rock, though I’m not quite “up to speed” yet. After moving that slowly for a week, it takes me a few days to reenter the stream of modern life. I kept an open mind, and therefor learned some wonderfully powerful Tibetan meditation practices. I’m still sorting out all that I learned and trying to integrate it into daily living. Once I’m more settled, I will probably go into my insights in more detail.
