My life has been full on this week.
My laptop finally died (never buy HP again!). My new job is great but also full of uncertainty. Commuting for more than an hour each way in the hot weather is taxing. We do have hot weather finally though – summer is here! I helped several people. I did not have time to tidy the streets around the house, like I was doing lately. Acacias blossomed and I nearly missed enjoying their beautiful scent. I meditated a lot (tears on the packed commuter train after Chopra Center’s Davidji Pain Release meditation, oh yeah). I stopped eating meat. Social calendar perked up thanks to summer. I learned more about myself and not all of it was easy or positive… It’s all been a bit like this painting by Nigel Bird.
I feel like I am missing clarity. So I am looking for a 3 day silent retreat (Buddhist ideally) around London. If you know one or have done one, do please let me know in the comments. Have a nice week!
