My first weekend back home in Milan, after having just emerged from the last Vipassana retreat. A lovely, quiet time with the family, reconnecting. A time to savour the after-effects of a full-on spiritual detox. I’m in a state of grace. Immensely grateful and fully aware of the great good fortune to have had the door opened to me. Doing Vipassana is not, as Burgs says, for the faint-hearted, but what a challenge (and a relief) to finally confront those gremlins that sabotage us every which way! On this particular retreat I had the opportunity to dig up and identify some gritty old stuff that I’ve always assumed had nothing to do with me. Wrong!!
