This week back at the Ashram, after my visit home, has been one of ups and downs. I had severe headaches for the first two days upon my return - no idea what was the initiator of the pain or if I picked up a bug on the airplane, but after two days of misery, I again re-emerged feeling great!
The weather here has been absolutely perfect each day this week. The beach goers, and I did make it to the beach once this week, found the water crystal clear and refreshing. The blue gradients of color take your breath away - so beautiful! The evenings have also been pleasant and no problem sleeping in a tent.
I've taught quite a bit this week which has been so joyful to me. I really love teaching, and it's becoming more and more comfortable each time. Feedback from those taking my classes has been affirming and positive.
It feels nice to be helpful and to provide a relaxing and yet energizing feeling to those taking the classes. Seeing the peacefulness and calm on their faces at the end of class is so gratifying.
Work has been extremely busy and the time flies by each day.
I had my first ever Vedic Reading with the Priest here. It was quite enlightening and affirming at the same time. Life will just keep getting better for me - how great is that?!!!
The Neuroscience and Spirituality Symposium provided us with new learning and thought provoking mental stimulation. The neuroscientists presented data on the brain and overlaid possibilities that explored the relationships of the mind, consciousness and the brain. Neuroscientific Reductionism was a concept of discussion, as was consciousness from a number of different cultural and religious traditions' perspectives.
Fascinating and enlightening!
Richard Moss is at the Ashram currently, and his talks about 'presence' bring to mind some of the work I studied through Landmark. Learning that the here and now - this very moment - is a creation of our mind and experiences - over and over and over - We choose what to put onto every blank canvas of our existence, moment by moment - the choice is actually ours.
To quote Richard Moss, life is about "ceaseless discovery".
Sending You Love from the Bahamas.
