Original Essay by Cameron Conaway


I was working out on multiple assailant strategies. While I was sucking wind and recovering, Lynn took the time to tell me that Episode 27, "Talk on Qi gave her a lot to think about".

Jean told posted that she had "attended our Harmonizing Sex Drive Workshop and it was the perfect reminder of taking care of yourself first and the rest will follow."

They raised $15,000 to help burn victims in the hospital. Say 'Thank You' to a Fireman.


* Program Announcements near the end.

* Couple of edit issues in last episode because I wanted to make sure it got out on time.. Why did I put it out anyway?

My Top Priority is to be as consistent as possible, just like in practice. Some may be better than others. The effort is to provide quality information first, (practice with good intent), be consistent as possible, then performance..

Reid went to see Bruce in Charlotte, and together they did the Reeling Silk Tai Chi with the Veterans. Yesterday during the Free Monday Meditation Class at 11:30, we did a meditation on 'Creating Room for Your Thoughts'. Reid feels that it will be great for the Veterans, so I will record some bumpers and edit for them. Will send it to you Reid and Bruce, probably through dropbox.

I exchanged a few emails with Cameron and I asked if I could share the essay with you. I hope you find it as worthwhile as I did.
