I’m not quite sure when or how i fell asleep in my practices but somewhere along the way, I think that happened to me. And when you’re not aware of something its very difficult to do anything about it and I’m pretty sure I would have continued along that path for the foreseeable future had I not made it to Samahita Retreat. So for waking me up from whatever coma I was in – thank you with all my heart.
That said, being awake doesn’t necessarily make the work any easier! I still find it tough trying to keep up the energy and motivation for early morning starts when I know the day ahead will be long and intense but I think I’ve noticed a calmness in my daily attitude that I can only attribute to the pranayama and the calm start to the day. Its like I can see and feel all the mania and stress going on around me but I’m just not getting as involved as I would have in the past.
So I guess what I’m trying to say is that for all the myriad of greater and lesser changes that I feel have occurred in my practices/life as a result of my time in Samahita Retreat, I will be forever grateful. I feel really luck to have had the chance to learn from you and I hope that our paths will cross again in the near future.
