Had a great experience bringing the Dharma to pagans at the Heartland Pagan Festival. I taught meditation to hippies and nudists and pagans and it was wonderful. They were fully engaged and asking questions and we meditated together amidst the drum circles and fire.
I started with the line “People say that when you’re nervous you should picture your audience naked. I’m having a really easy time doing that.” And I got a lot of laughs.
I am going to write something long about my experience. I just wanted to check in.
It was a spiritually transformative experience. I’ve never been around so much nonjudgment and positivity.
I think I’ve brought some of it back with me.
