We are all feeling the pain of being apart right now, even though many of us are blessed with the ability to teach and participate in our classes online. It is a very different world and it looks like it has the potential to remain in this evolved state into the foreseeable future.

For now, we rest in the stillness that the dark nights bring. Now is the time to turn inward, to rest, recover and recuperate.
