Listening to our weekly discussions has given me a deeper understanding of what it means to be balanced, consistent, and to let go. Doing things with heart, having patience, and self-reflection have opened my eyes to look deeper to appreciate their possible meanings and importance. The tools that are helping me in my physical and chanting practices are also helpful in my decision making and approach to daily life. These sessions have sparked the interest within me to dig deeper. I am gaining a great appreciation for this time with minimal distractions to work at bettering myself, polishing my jade.
