Journeys

Today I visited a local Hindu Temple and it was a wonderful experience.  I love visiting sacred places.

I had a conversation with the temple priest about the oneness of all things and it was very moving. 

 

This weekend I’m going to an event called the Heartland Pagan Festival. I will be camping for four days and leading a meditation workshop. 

 

I will be spending time with hippies and radicals and weird people. People a lot less boring than me. I will engage in some of their rituals, getting my chakras cleansed and banishing obstacles. I will sit by a bonfire and dance in the moonlight. And I will meditate in the woods every morning. 

I expect to come back inspired.

 

There will be stories and there will be pictures upon my return.
