Today was our final day at Kripalu. We had a very early morning, with some even waking up at 4:00am for a chanting style of yoga which was shockingly different from what we had previously experienced. Others went to gentle or intermediate yoga at 6:30am and experienced a great last day of yoga with our group.
After yoga, we all went up and packed our bags and chilled out. From 9:00-11:00am, we went on a very different journey, a sacred journey. We walked the labyrinth in the snow to contemplate what we are grateful for, and many people thought of their loved ones. Labyrinths have been a part of religious and spiritual life all over the world for millennia. We wrote in our journals about the experiences we had during the walk which was good because we all saw each other's different perspectives.
Then, we experienced our last meal in the Kripalu cafeteria. Kripalu was an amazing place, not only was the food fully up to Neal's standards, but Ms. Lea would have been happy to see the gender neutral bathrooms as well!
Now we are headed back to campus and are looking forward to the outstanding symposium where we will show off our new mindset and loving peace for yoga and mindfulness. We are so excited to see all the other remarkable projects and reconnect with our family and friends. Thank you for reading!
