Every spiritual tradition teaches stopping. It’s a way to break habits, a way to let space into your otherwise overcrowded life, a way to restore balance.
So this is my break.
I am at a remarkable retreat called vaidyagrama, a healing village, in the south of India. Until January 10, I will be away from computers and emails and telephones.
During times of retreat we can reflect on what has happened and what is to come. But mostly, we can consider the great gifts we have, right now. 2011 was an extraordinary year. 2012 holds many promises.
I wish you all a happy, healthy New Year. I hope it is off to a good start in the direction that will most bring balance and fulfillment into your life.
