Was trying to do the inner smile while
doing the healing sounds when my liver
just became hugely angry and began
“kicking” my lungs. Then my insides
turned into a big kid fight with
everyone blaming each other for all
kinds of stuff. Made me nervous
at first but I just let it develop
until we all got exhausted.
Hopefully, this will lead to some

Enough mutual counseling with Earth as a stable mediator,
and the violence starts to die down and they start
to see that despite their problems that they really
do love each other.
You are the right path.
Love and qi,

fortunate enough to be able
to attend the fund 1-4 retreat
and am looking forward to being
in an space where I can concentrate
without duties and people waiting
for me to finish my “weird chinese
Always thankful for your advice,

I can sympathize;
I know how it can feel difficult to build momentum.
But slow progress is still progress, and
coming to retreats can act as an accelerant,
so it is wonderful you will be coming.
I will be there the whole summer, actually.
