Belonging to Earth: Esalen September, 2011

"stay together
learn the flowers
go light"
~ Gary Snyder

As I reflect back on our week, so many strong images and sensations come to mind and body. The crisp clarity of the fresh falling water of Conoga Falls can still be felt stirring inside my body, "...waking the bones. Whispering, Oh, what is that beautiful thing that just happened." 

I appreciated the range of deep silence to dives into the curiosities of the natural world and all it's wonders. Thanks for everyone's willingness to jump into the adventure and the discovery.

Here are some links:

Anyone else from our group have a link they want to add?

I hope our paths will share the same trail some day soon.
