    I just returned from an experiential five day one called the Embodied Life. It was a combination of focusing techniques created by Eugene Gendlin, awareness through movement lessons by Moshe Feldenkrais, and sitting meditation sessions out of the martial arts schools originating in Japan.

    I really found it refreshing, and the techniques are easy to apply and practice in my daily life.

    What interests you?

    I attended a 2 day workshop on autism. It was very informative and educational. Even after teaching students with autism for 12 years, there was still a lot about them I did not know. There are so many spectrums of autism, and EACH child is unique and special.

    I loved it!

    I have to say being at a hot springs resort with exquisitely, delicious vegetarian dining by a roaring river in a remote area added to the enjoyment of the seminar topic.

    I like the occassional seminar involving a summer day, a shady spot, a bunch of people sitting around, shooting the breeze and drinking beer.

    Oh? Some of you think that's not a seminar?

    I beg to differ

    En vino veritas.

    That's the common denominator, we like the ones that are restorative.

    Oh, I don't know, I think you might enjoy the hot springs more while you're alive.

    I attended a 3-day stockdog seminar that was awesome...my dog got to work with both sheep and cattle and I learned some things I didn't know before about handling him. The only bad thing about it was I realized how out of shape I was in....so, next clinic - I'll be in better shape ;)
