Over thanksgiving weekend I went to a retreat at Blue Cliff Monastery in upstate NY. Monday morning as I was walking my dogs I felt amazing! Full of joy and gratitude, and my feelings were tainted by sadness over the weekend so this was a surprise.
After my last visit to KTD monastery for evening meditation in August I swore I would mediate for 30 mins a day. Snicker.
Now I’m just going to aim for 90 meditations (at least 5 minutes) in 90 days, a la the 12 step advice to make 90 meetings in 90 days when first getting clean. Now it is day 3 and going strong! I will chronicle that journey here.
