Sandra hi,

I was very touched by the sharing of your awakening experience, which I read a few times and felt to drop a line and smile your way. :) Also, your post 'brought back' to awareness one of Open's older articles, which I hadn't read before and found very inspiring and timely.

Silence has always been a very grounding space for me and often an amazing mirror for the shedding of the self. Meditative silence either alone or in nature has often brought me into deep presence that felt all encompassing. Although I haven't had a huge experience like the one you described, the challenge I find with awakenings (smaller and bigger) is the permanent integration in every day life. How's this been for you?

Much love
