Ner Year, new me

 New Year, new me


Winter arrives touching the city with the shades of gray, the palette of nature in its decline.  One day, the sunlight gets paler, the sky whiter, and the colors all around us lose the brightness of the summer days.

 I was born in a tropical country.  The sun shines the whole year, the weather is very nice, not too dry, not too humid. There is a month or two where there are naturally occurring fires in the woods, on a daily basis, due to the heat and brightness of the sun. In general, any day would make a great beach day unless it rains. And when it does rain, it actually pours.  I like to think that nature in Venezuela is always a feast for the imagination, exaggerate, voluptuous, giant, convoluted. Fertility is everywhere, at any moment, with a vibrant renewing energy that expands to the hearts of the inhabitants.

My Faith and My Yoga Mat – A Prayerful Pose


My Faith and My Yoga Mat – A Prayerful Pose.

Rolling up my yoga mat and placing it back in the basket, my thoughts wander to about a year ago. So much time has passed since then, so many people have come and gone, so many things have changed, including me. Especially me.

Getting Started with Meditation

by Jesse Diaz

Every aspiring meditator this day and age is beset by a crisis that would seem alien to truth seekers, ages back. The crisis I speak of is one of choice. Back in the day, choices of tradition or teacher were limited depending on one’s culture and good fortune to encounter somebody with skill, knowledge and the ability to instruct. Dubious teachers have always been hazards along the way for a determined aspirant, though usually for lack of options rather than a glut of them. Nowadays, however, it indeed seems that if you can dream it, you can buy it -to slightly modify Dr. Frank N. Furter’s inspirational adage.

For our first trip to a Korean spa, we choose one of Busan’s biggest and most modern — Spa Land, in the Shinsegae department store. Twenty-two baths, thirteen distinctively-designed saunas, relaxation rooms, steam rooms, foot baths and more were ours to enjoy for four blissful hours.

Seeking meditation group

I am new to Busan, working in Seomyeon. I would like to find a weekly meditation group meeting. I'm missing the 1.5 hour guided-meditation format I enjoyed at home.

Any ideas appreciated!

Wiki Rummage #4: Benefits of Meditation

During the week, I teach company workers at Lundbeck Korea, a Danish pharmaceutical company based at the World Trade Center building in COEX. There are five students in total, and we have 1 on 1 conversational classes focusing on critical thinking and discussion. They're quite enjoyable lessons, and a good way to discuss interesting topics with intelligent 'students' (they're all married and most of them have children, so I feel more like the student). Some of the topics I get from various news sources, and others from Wikipedia.
