The Way of Nature: Esalen, September 2014

Ways of Nature

"Approach it and there is no beginning;
follow it and there is no end.
Your can't know it, but you can be it,
as ease in your own life.
Just realize where you come from:
this is the essence of wisdom"
~ Lao Tzu from the Tao de Ching

This was my last workshop at Esalen for the 2014 season. What a good way to step into the changing of the season and the beginning of Fall. Once again, I am touched by our capacity to be courageous, curious, compassionate and build a fabric of community that supports our wild explorations.

Here are some links:
Start Close In by David Whyte
Poem To Live By A growing collection of poems
Meal Chant Stew an article about gratefullness that I wrote some time back that was recently published
Elemental Esalen For elemental inspiration

Group Links:
Bucklin Wines

Jim Schantz Jim's art work
Schantz Galleries
Any more personal links anyone in our group would like to add?

Two claps and one deep bow,
