MOMENTS OF PEACE
I try to remind students (and myself) that we are much more alike than we are different. I ask them to breathe together, as you never know how much the reminder of breath is helping the student next to you get through a challenging life moment. I know what it’s like to “what if” yourself to death, to live in a state of fear and anxiety where it feels like making a decision will leave you paralyzed. But I’ve been grateful lately to also experience pure joy and bliss where the mind is empty and quiet and there is no desire to be anywhere other than the current place and moment.
Traveling forces me out of my comfort zone and shows me both my strengths and weaknesses as a human being. I have a burning desire to see the world and experience other cultures but I absolutely hate flying. I find it painful both mentally and physically.
With the holiday season right around the corner, I thought I would share some of the travel tips that I’ve cultivated throughout the years. I’ve had the opportunity to teach workshops in other countries and I’m extremely grateful for these wonderful memories. So I hope you find these tips helpful.
