I was lucky enough to have some extra vacation days at the end of the year and decided to take advantage of a week long meditation retreat at the Shambhala center here in Chicago. Because, come on, what else would you want to do with your time off but sit on a cushion for 11 hours a day :)
I just finished day one and although it was hard and felt very long, it felt very right and rewarding.
Here's to a week of centering! KI KI SO SO!
