I'm just back from the IMCW week-long retreat at Seven Oaks. Seven days of silent practice. I'm a bit bleary, but inspired. I was up at 5:45 to lead morning yoga and each day I was fully engaged. Mornings were filled with back to back interviews and I did a dharma talk, led a metta meditation and afternoon yoga. I'd fall into bed each night pretty spent.
I'll have links to the talks and possibly a number of my movement classes available in the near future.
We had 67 yogis for the weekend and 43 who stayed on for the whole week. It takes a special kind of maniac to sit for a week of silent practice. I have to say this was an inspiring collection of maniacs.
We had over 30 people turned away for this retreat so if you're interested in the five-day New Year's Retreat coming up at the end of December, you might want to register now. We'll have a repeat gathering of the teachers: Â Tara Brach, Pat Coffey, Hugh Byrne and myself.
