A Soggy Interlude

2022 Week 8

 Greetings! 👋

🌨 It's been mostly dreary, gray, and wet here at Hickory lately. 🌧

🙆‍♂️ So we varied up the routine! Yoga and personal practices in silence one morning, a short new Pali chant, and even our first time walking and sitting outside together under the stars during evening practice. As a great man once said, "The only constant is change."

🤸‍♂️ On that note, we watched a wonderful and very Dharmic film for movie night this week, Peaceful Warrior. Based on an autobiographical book by gymnast Dan Millman, it's a modern, uplifting take on liberation from suffering and dedication to service. ⛽️

🌐 Speaking of service, we dusted off and rebooted the Hickory House HoloPort, a device which hosts decentralized peer-to-peer applications on the HoloChain network. We're not quite sure what goes on inside, but it has a fancy light that glows blue and green like the aurora. Coooool. 🟢

🧘‍♂️ For the Monastic Academy Virtual Zendo, Stephen led a "Digital Detox" Virtual Retreat on Saturday. He and the other meditators dedicated their practice to all those suffering from the war right now. We're feeling the feelings around it, keeping folks in our hearts. 🇺🇦

Bless your Week
