Scenes from a Weekend: The Plunge Edition

In Uncategorized on February 17, 2011 at 11:07 am

Last Saturday I was lucky enough to experience The Plunge One Day Retreat lead by Karen Maezen Miller. The retreat took place on a picture perfect California day at the Asilomar Retreat Center on the edge of Pacific Ocean.

Unknowingly, before she even began, she took away from me one of my favorite ways to keep myself at arms distance, to stay on the edges… taking notes. In the materials she sent out she mentioned that there would be no need for paper and pen, instead we would simply be present with whatever happened.

In the loveliness of the day there was this.

Pacific=peace

love

faith

attention

zen=meditation

the breath spiritualized what is happening right now.

no judgment

patience=undisturbed

things change.

forgiveness is peace.

peace is practice.

love is attention.

attention is breath.

letting go is faith.

faith is patience.

trust your life.

Trust your life, indeed.
