Don’t Go!

Filed under: Observations, Photography — jonathanfoust @ 11:10 am

Despite my dog’s attempt to not let me leave without him, I’m heading up to Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health to lead two programs.  The first is a three day program with my friends Shobhan and Danna Faulds called the Energy Intensive:  Yoga, Meditation and Breathwork.

The second program is called The Still Small Voice Within:  Meditation, Focusing and Intuition Training.  This four-day intensive is all about cultivating awareness through vipassana, developing a more refined sense of the ‘here and now’ in the body through Focusing and taking time to reflect on the questions we carry inside and how we can open to greater wisdom and compassion.

Nothing passive aggressive about this dog...

  1. It makes me sad to have to leave my dog behind, she and I would rather spend all out time together.

    Good luck on you trip.

    • It’s always wrenching to drive down the driveway with him in the rear view mirror! Thank you for the kind words!

  3. You mean you are leaving Wonderdog behind to go and teach those same old courses for the nth time?
    And to those same people still looking for “the answer”. Well, I say get your priorities straight.
    Further, I think that Hakunah could enhance this program by his very presence.
    All the best, my friend.

  4. It could be worse – you’re not leaving him with teenage kids. After traveling with us to all our diplomatic posts for 15 years our dog was very anxious when the suitcases came out. One adult leaving was okay, two was trouble. Sometimes my mom would walk out to the cab with my dad and our dog would look at me and any remaining siblings with a look that could only mean, “$!!, you three, I’m drinking sludge water and getting 10 minute walks for 2 weeks.”
