July 21 Vipassana Silent Meditation 7AM - 6PM

There are hundreds of methods of meditation, but perhaps Vipassana has a unique status; just the same way as there have been thousands of mystics, but Gautam Buddha has a uniqueness of his own. In many ways he is incomparable. In many ways he has done more for humanity than anyobody else. In many ways his search for truth was more sincere, more authentic than anybody else's . The meaning - the literal meaning - of the word Vipassana is "to look," and the metaphorical meaning is "to watch, to witness."

Gautam Buddha has chosen a meditation that can be called the essential meditation. All other meditations are different forms of witnessing, but witnessing is present in every kind of meditation as an essential part; it cannot be avoided. Buddha has deleted everything else and kept only the essential part - to witness.

When you have become perfectly watchful of your body, mind and heart, then you cannot do anything more, then you have to wait. When perfection is complete on these three steps, the fourth step happens on its own accord as a reward. Suddenly your life force, your witnessing, enters into the very center of your being. You have come home. 

Breakfast, lunch, & tea will be provided.
Suggested donation: $50
Please bring a meditation cushion, yoga mat, pen, handbook, and pillow, and wear comfortable clothing

It's been a kaleidoscope of synchronicities putting together this last minute welcoming ceremony for Tenzin Lama Sherpa. He arrived at NaMestoy July 1 around 11pm. The next morning we started planning the welcoming ceremony. I called Forsyth News and told the editor, Brian, about Tenzin's visit. He was most receptive about writing an article about Tenzin. He came for a visit the next day, and the article may be in the paper this Sunday.

When I arrived home, the grounds were overgrown. I asked Karen Cole, our reiki healing practitioner and wellness coach at Central Forsyth High, if she knew anyone who could clean up our property. She told me that two of her ex-students work on her yard, and I gave Mitch a call. He and his co-worker came the next day and gave me a quote after talking about our common acquaintance with Karen. Then, when Brian, who will be writing the article for the newspaper came; I mentioned Karen's new position as wellness coach at Forsyth Central. He, too, knew Karen from all of the publicity around her ground breaking position and creation at Forsyth Central.

I won't bore you with the details of all the avenues Tenzin, Brian, & I went through to finally get the 500 names back that were on NaMestoy Farm's Mailchimp list. We finally got the perfect techie to actually talk with someone at Mailchimp! For hours I thought all 500 names had been lost! As Tenzin has told me so many times, "Nothing is permanent. Everything is always changing. One day is easy; the next chaotic." Yes, indeed. I can now breathe again.... and Breathing is what Tenzin is most animated about now.  

And then, next on the agenda was music. What's a ceremony without it? Once again, I depended on people in our spiritual community to give me the name of someone new because I'd contacted almost everyone who had played for other ceremonies here. None were available for the date we'd chosen. I called Susan from Decatur Healing arts, and she suggested someone I'd never heard of. I gave him a call, and he was happy about the invitation. See the information below... I can't wait to meet him!
