I wanted to share this photo with everyone, taken at Sound of Music Hill at the Himalayan Institute in Honesdale, PA June 9, 2013.
Pictured above you’ll see me, Rolf Sovik, Shari Friedrichson, Sandy Anderson, Dorothy Spence and the graduates of the YTT/AYS combo platter program. We started on this journey with this group 9 months ago and along the way we’ve had many births of awareness and even the birth of baby Bryn to Rachel! On the same day this photo was taken, we also graduated our Connecticut 500 hour YTT/AYS combo platter and several other students from the Connecticut, Miami, Dallas and Halifax sanghas. A special, beautiful day.

Good Morning Cleansers,
As we are taking special care of ourselves now, and perhaps feeling sensations we were not noticing before we began to remove the habitual grind.
