Feeling Full(y)

Karme Choling: June 10, 2014

As my time here has come to an end, I am flooded with emotion. Both joy and pain. Appreciation and disappointment. Sadness and love. There was a time in my life when I felt very little, but the numb disconnectedness that allowed me to feel safe in the world. There was a time when I started to open my heart that I mostly felt the sadness, pain and the suffering of living. As my time at Karme Choling comes to end and my year-long gap of space starts closing in, I can say with great appreciation and awe; that I feel deeply. All of it. And I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’ve had the best year of my life.

It’s never to late to follow your heart.

Here are some highlights of Vermont in May and June. They don’t call them the green mountains for nothing!
