Tasting The World With My Feet

An Indian woman explained to me that she likes the feel of the rice in her fingers as part of the eating experience. I realized that I like the feel of the Earth by spending a lot of time walking on it.

Happy 75th Gurudev!

Recently posted on the wall. Thank you! The path often feels singular and this helps to explain why.

Seven Years Later

I haven't felt inclined to take many pictures this trip, because I am satisfied with most of the one's over the seven year time span. I did just replace my pocket camera, so with 40x, I was curious if I could get better shots of the young girl in the chair at the Navaratra Celebration. Canon has progressed as well!!

Oh My--The Mystery!

The grace of being a peg moved to the other side of the globe, placed at the feet of a humble, enlightened Soul, encouraged to sit, and frozen in space while an energetic, composition mysteriously unfolds. Wow! India and my inner time continues to humble and blow my socks off simultaneously. I couldn't make this stuff up if I tried. The white, woman walking is still walking, white, and a woman.

Day One of Navratra 2018

Riding in Portugal

Always a student, so I decided to return to Portugal to ride with Antonio Borba who I worked with last year. I have learned that being a student means showing up for whatever unfolds, but questions are allowed. A friend and trainer decided to come as well. Bonus that we are on similar tracks for improving our timing, feel, and execution of conscious riding aids. The week was intense with our own two lessons a day and our deep discussions on the equestrian world.

As EquiSeers, it fueled our interest to create a learning facility for awareness and wellness through experiences with horses, but for non-equestrians and equestrians. What is most misunderstood in riding communication? The aids and the application of the aids. It was very insightful to ride horses trained in a different system and with a different feel. We are both experienced professionals, but it created a chance to study the root of the basic aids. We were beginners which is always useful. Grace.

Fun outing to the Portuguese Riding School--practice day.
