After a weekend in the mountains visiting Adrian and then Clay I headed to San Francisco for a few nights visiting Elizabeth and Kristen went back to Arizona.
I had gone to San Francisco on the way to a meditation course in North Fork California (http:///www.dhamma.org). I had met many people in India that had done this course and I decided that I should give it a try. It was 10 days of silence with 11 hours of meditation each day and was very hard work. It was apparently the same technique that Buddha used to gain enlightenment and the focus is all on giving the technique 10 days to see what you think afterwards. After 2 days I was finding it really tough going, and after 6 I was pretty much ready to leave. The management convinced me to stay on the sixth and then again on the eighth day and I'm glad I saw it through. At some points near the end of the course I was actually considering staying longer!!! It does some pretty strange things to your head that is for sure... I could write a lot more about this but I'm not sure it would make sense....

Vipassana
I'm thinking about attending this same retreat but debating whether or not to go.

Please tell more about what it did to your head.

Thanks!
