The new year has had a very promising start. Last weekend I participated in a workshop related to acceptance of self, including age, weight, size, etc. Some participants, especially those with a poor picture of themselves, found a new beginning, and also a desire to change what can be changed. The workshop also included yoga (six o’clock in the morning, too early!), meditation, exercises in self-insight, and acceptance of others, and much more. It was held at a beautiful property a couple of hours drive from Pretoria. Food, although 95% vegetarian, was divine. Thank you, Johan and Tullio, for a wonderful three days.

South Africa does not have the old culture and beautiful temple complexes of Indi! But they have a number of spiritual practitioners, who are very approachable.

So far so good here in South Africa. Who says that retirement is boring?
