Simply Wild at Esalen Institute, Big Sur

Enough. These few words are enough.
If not these words, this breath.
If not this breath, this sitting here.

This opening to life
we have refused
again and again
until now. Until now.

- David Whyte
“Enough” Where Many Rivers Meet

Our "Simply Wild" group on the last day at Julia Pfeiffer-Burns State Park. Perfect weather at Big Creek, a cold swim, wild turkey feathers, stories about living and "dead" redwoods, Esselen Indians, birthday wishes, hot springs, whales off the coast, bare attention, being idle and blessed, silence, heartfelt talks, open to the unfolding of each moment. Thanks to all for you participation, for doing the "hokey pokey" and putting your whole self in!
