I am eating my dinner slowly, and truly enjoying every bite. This food tastes stronger and healthier than any other food I have ever eaten! Being alone I could really feel every nuance in this food, freshly picked up from the earth just few hours ago by the good people who farm this rich land. I smell the salty clean ocean air. It is so good. This is paradise!
Few days later, my workshops are so well received that I have been invited to come again and teach here for a whole month next year. I hope we will work it out.
I love my students – all seekers of meaning and truth – and I feel so much love and appreciation coming out of them. They are beautiful people. They work in the farm during the day and study with me at night. The spiritual teaching is in nature and in the earth. The work is not only done in the classroom during the seminar, but it also continues beyond the classroom as the seekers work the earth and service in the kitchen in the magnificent land of Esalen.
The stillness, quiet and disconnection from the outside world allow time to truly appreciate the beauty surrounding us such as the flowers, the skies and the birds, and this experience is intensified at Esalen. This is a place to look deeply, to see and enjoy the natural beauty of the world. It is a place that pulls inward, as the ocean and the constant sound of waves are providing a constant hypnotic soundtrack. It is a very good place to work on my book, isolated from the world, the routine and the daily chores. I will soon be back here for another teaching seminar during July 17-22, 2011 to teach with Mark Waldman about Music, Spirituality and the Brain. Fascinating seminar!
I hope to see you too at Esalen sometime in the future!
