Next summer, you — go to Mt. Shasta

If we haven’t convinced you yet you should spend a week (or two) with Tim Miller up on Mt. Shasta, I’m not sure we’ll ever be able to do so. But we’ll keep trying. Tim’s blog post from this week gives you the history and the sense of place from his two weeks high above our … Continue reading Next summer, you — go to Mt. Shasta

Mt. Shasta is magical, as this wedding proves

We’ve talked about the magic of Tim Miller’s Mt. Shasta retreat before. (Perhaps too much?) Well, if a place can be where two people meet, fall in love and then get married, I think it contains some magic. Here’s Tim’s recounting of the wedding of our — and many people’s — friends from Shasta, the … Continue reading Mt. Shasta is magical, as this wedding proves

You — yes, you! — can still join Tim Miller in Mt. Shasta

The past two summers, Bobbie and I have joined Tim Miller for his Primary Series week in Mt. Shasta. We’ve met great friends, seen beautiful sights, hiked tremendous trails, dunked ourselves in revitalizing water and got to see Tim — the Guru, mind you — a bit relaxed, a bit in his own chosen element. … Continue reading You — yes, you! — can still join Tim Miller in Mt. Shasta

What we’re missing in Mt. Shasta

Quick post, because I can’t really do this justice. It speaks for itself. Bobbie and I had considered, briefly, trying to do the second week of Tim Miller’s Mt. Shasta retreat instead of the first this year. For a bunch of reasons, that didn’t happen — and the result was terrific, as we got to … Continue reading What we’re missing in Mt. Shasta

Mt. Shasta: a confluence of friends

Hello from McCloud, Calif. As I’m posting this, Mt. Shasta — home to Native American spirits, Lemurians and surely Siva — looms before me. Quite literally, its snow-filled peak climbs up through the oaks and pines towers at the center of my vision. It’s wonderful, in other words. In an earlier post, Bobbie mentioned that … Continue reading Mt. Shasta: a confluence of friends

We’re off to Shasta! The conversation is yours

As if we haven’t made it apparent enough, we are on our way to Mt. Shasta for a week’s retreat with Tim Miller. We’re excited. It will be a chance to see some good friends (from last year) as well as meet new people in a warm, friendly and cool environment. Oh, and then there’s … Continue reading We’re off to Shasta! The conversation is yours

Mt. Shasta: one guy’s awakening

In a few hours, our little car will be packed full of a week’s worth of yoga outfits; hiking clothes and gear; multiple yoga rugs and mats; and bottles of wine to share at dinner. Then we’ll hit the road for the 600-mile trip to Mt. Shasta for our week with Tim Miller. That means … Continue reading Mt. Shasta: one guy’s awakening

Mt. Shasta, here we come

Tim Miller’s just posted his weekly “Tuesdays with Timji” edition. This one’s all about Mt. Shasta, that stunning mountain on the edge of California’s north. This will be my second time to his first series retreat (he does the second series for week two), and I can testify first hand to its transformative powers (no … Continue reading Mt. Shasta, here we come

In Ashtanga, facing the difficulty of the difficult

We’re partway through our second week in Encinitas where, I kid you not, it rained on Tuesday. That’s not about to stop me from going surfing in a bit. (In fact, I’ll probably pause midway in this post.) What’s more likely to stop me from surfing is the fact that we’re partway through our second … Continue reading In Ashtanga, facing the difficulty of the difficult

Intro to Second Series is hard

We thought we had a great idea. On Sunday morning, it quickly became clear our plan was flawed. Getting all our last-minute stuff — Blendtech for green smoothies, our own coffee maker just in case — together was taking longer than expected. And then there was practice. And the later it got, the worse traffic … Continue reading Intro to Second Series is hard
