For the Busy and the Stressed

I joined two of Gilbert’s one day retreats this year, one on the essential fundamentals and the other one on silent illumination. These weren’t my first time attending Gilbert’s retreat, but every time at his retreat, I always felt deeply inspired and peaceful. 


Somehow, I’d managed to live in the Bay Area for over 15 years, and had never been to Big Sur.  Mendocino, Tahoe, LA, Yosemite, and all along San Mateo and Marin parks.  But never to Big Sur.  And my good friend, Mann, was planning to attend, too.
