I held my Living the Law workshop last week and many of you wrote me asking how it went and when the next event will be. Here’s how the events unfolded — some expected, some unexpected.
This is the second time Wendy and I have hosted this workshop since October 2006. We’ve attracted a wonderful group of people from across the U.S., Canada, and Europe and I must say it’s a true honor for me to be at the center of such passionate, awake, and sharp group of people.
Our job during the weekend is to create the proper environment for attendees to access the information, technologies, and their innate capacity to live deeper into the law of attraction. Attendees get what they come for (even when they are not sure why they decided to attend).
This past weekend had that magical vibe that I’ve come to expect everywhere in my life. Connection. Awareness. Breakthrough. It was a very cool place to be for two days and there’s no place I would have rather been.
With our work done, we all hugged and said our goodbyes. Karin and I proceeded home to a quiet evening beside the fire and basked in the satsifying glow of work well done. We spent Sunday in that same easy space, just reading the paper and enjoying the bright winter sunshine.
On Monday, the feeling of deep peace just continued to surround me. At the gym, everything felt effortless on the basketball court. My body felt strong and reacted as if it were ten years younger.
I returned home to read an e-mail telling me that one of the participants from the workshop (Linda) had suffered a severe stroke. I was the robin that flies into the plate glass window. Just stunned. Not upset. Not sad. Just never saw it coming and now trying to orient myself around something so "impossible."
In an attempt to integrate this new information, my brain began to scan for answers. How could this happen? But the question found little traction. I would never know the answer and I know better than to keep asking for one.
It Just Was.
Two nights later, I called Linda’s friend to check on her condition. She told me Linda had taken a turn and it was now a matter of time. The wonderful wave that I had been riding since the workshop disintegrated upon the shore.
I sat thinking about that paper-thin line between this life and our next experience. I thought about all the deaths in my family and recalled all the details in my mind’s eye. Having seen dying up close several times, I no longer fear death. But I still feel the impact of death.
Karin and I went to Linda’s wake. We knelt in front of her casket and connected with her once again. We looked at the pictures of her life; her warm smiles the dominate theme. We continued on, had a nice Sunday lunch, and spoke of our friend and the stuff of life.
So how was the workshop?
Another profound, life-affirming experience.
Thank you for asking.

P.S. Oh, yes. Looks like we’ll be meeting again this June 22 and 23rd of this year. Save the dates.
