What I Have Been Doing!

I’m sending you this weeks newsletter from the mountains of New Mexico. I’ve been here for the last eight days and the beauty of the environment, the sky, and the clarity the air is exhilarating.

For this past week, high in the mountains between Santa Fe and Taos, I attended the annual 3HO summer solstice meditation event. Although 40 years ago this event was originated by the Sikh community, over 90% of the people who came to the event this year are not Sikhs. They are yoga students from all over the world. This year, for the first time a group of 100 people came from China. Yoga is even happening in China!  In all, there were over 2000 people at the event.

For the past week everybody has been doing yoga, taking classes and many people learning to become teachers of yoga. For three intensive days, of which I attended two, all 2000 people meditated simultaneously for approximately 10 hours a day. Please note this was not 10 straight hours, as there are breaks after every hour of meditation and a lunch break!

These meditations have been my personal tradition of the last many years as a way to recharge myself. Indeed this year’s meditations were sublime and I feel reinvigorated for the year ahead.

Below you will see a photograph I took of people in the lines getting ready to begin meditation. Please note, no photographs are allowed to be taken during the meditations themselves.

Below the group picture is a photo me (with watermelon in my left hand) and my longtime good friend Dharma Singh Khalsa, M.D. who is the author of several patient-oriented books and many medical papers on Alzheimer’s disease. You can find his books HERE on Amazon.com
