9
00:00:22,140 –> 00:00:25,380
little bit about how I first came here

10

and i discovered the practice of Zen

11
00:00:28,859 –> 00:00:32,430
meditation so I was living a really

12
00:00:32,430 –> 00:00:35,520
crazy life living just outside New York

13
00:00:35,520 –> 00:00:38,850
City I was a professional dancer and I

14
00:00:38,850 –> 00:00:40,110
was one of those people that was always

15
00:00:40,110 –> 00:00:41,910
walking around with a to-do list it was

16
00:00:41,910 –> 00:00:44,340
kind of obsessed about how I had to just

17
00:00:44,340 –> 00:00:48,030
constantly be fighting your life you

18
00:00:48,030 –> 00:00:49,680
know fighting other people the people on

19
00:00:49,680 –> 00:00:54,120
the bus um my friends my family I was

20
00:00:54,120 –> 00:00:55,289
kind of always in an argument with

21
00:00:55,289 –> 00:00:57,750
everything and feeling like I had to

22
00:00:57,750 –> 00:01:00,359
just force everything to happen and I

23
00:01:00,359 –> 00:01:01,920
was working really really really hard

24
00:01:01,920 –> 00:01:03,809
felt like I was working like 24 hours a

25
00:01:03,809 –> 00:01:06,630
day like most people and just constantly

26
00:01:06,630 –> 00:01:08,360
over stimulated

27
00:01:08,360 –> 00:01:12,950
really tired and something kind of

28
00:01:12,950 –> 00:01:14,930
surprising happened in that I was going

29
00:01:14,930 –> 00:01:17,390
through a career change and I was

30
00:01:17,390 –> 00:01:20,870
studying a form of healing with a man

31
00:01:20,870 –> 00:01:25,729
you know Hoshi about 11 years ago and to

32
00:01:25,729 –> 00:01:29,960
finish this training I needed to come to

33
00:01:29,960 –> 00:01:32,240
this facility with him this is where he

34
00:01:32,240 –> 00:01:34,100
was holding a retreat to finish our

35
00:01:34,100 –> 00:01:36,530
training and I remember the time

36
00:01:36,530 –> 00:01:39,860
thinking a Japanese and monastery what

37
00:01:39,860 –> 00:01:41,350
on earth am I going to be doing there

38
00:01:41,350 –> 00:01:44,830
but I really wanted to graduate so I

39
00:01:44,830 –> 00:01:48,110
showed up and you know I’ve never

40
00:01:48,110 –> 00:01:52,009
meditated I considered myself a

41
00:01:52,009 –> 00:01:54,410
relatively calm person but the idea of

42
00:01:54,410 –> 00:01:56,420
sitting still on a cushion for a little

43
00:01:56,420 –> 00:01:57,450
while and

44
00:01:57,450 –> 00:01:59,759
obvious people and being in this

45
00:01:59,759 –> 00:02:02,130
completely foreign culture even though

46
00:02:02,130 –> 00:02:04,579
it was in America really scared me and

47
00:02:04,579 –> 00:02:08,008
the really amazing thing that surprised

48
00:02:08,008 –> 00:02:12,590
me by the end of that week was I

49
00:02:12,590 –> 00:02:16,680
discovered inner peace and so that’s my

50
00:02:16,680 –> 00:02:20,370
invitation to you is if you’re ready to

51
00:02:20,370 –> 00:02:25,230
calm down the busyness and to find a

52
00:02:25,230 –> 00:02:27,209
little bit more quiet within even if you

53
00:02:27,209 –> 00:02:28,709
think you can’t do it it’s not

54
00:02:28,709 –> 00:02:30,360
accessible to you maybe it works for

55
00:02:30,360 –> 00:02:34,200
other people That’s not me trust me I’ve

56
00:02:34,200 –> 00:02:37,519
been there and all these years later

57
00:02:37,519 –> 00:02:40,730
this has given me so much in the play

58
00:02:40,730 –> 00:02:42,650
so if you’re interested in that
