Half Term Zen
This week during half term, we visited our friend Yeshe Trinley, a monk at the Kagyu Samye Ling Monestery in Scotland. We were staying with our cousins in Carlisle. so it was only an hours drive away.
The Monastery really is a hidden gem, and anyone can stay or visit, it’s in the top 10 Scottish visitor attractions. It even has a a lovely coffee shop and free WiFi 🙄 There’s a wonderful selection of events on each month, so tempted by them all.
A Snow Monk
We also went for a beautiful walk with Trinley. I always have a million questions about life, the universe and conciousness and how to create world peace 🤣
Meanwhile, my children and their cousins loved playing in the snow, they were totally engaged for a good couple of hours. They made a snow monk.
And there was me distracted with Trinley learning more about how to meditate and be present and my teachers are infront of me, already totally peaceful and playful and I’m not properly noticing!
Play is childrens’ natural state, it’s the space they create from.
No Need To Meditate Just Play!
Kids teach us how to be playful and present and we teach them how to to DO!
Notice, Breathe, Play, BE.
We are the light, we just need to remember to switch it on.
