Trip to Thailand is Huge Success!
Robert returns from a 30 day visit to Thailand to study "Nuad Boran," Traditional Thai massage.
"My approach to bodywork has been greatly enhanced and deeply enriched by my study of Thai massage in Thailand. I feel very blessed. This trip was an incredible learning opportunity for me. I am truly honored to have studied this form of bodywork in its homeland with such accomplished teachers. In Thai massage, every move, every point, every press has been precisely worked out. The attention to detail is amazing!"

a great way to practice loving kindness as described in the Metta Sutta:
As a mother would risk her life
to protect her child, her only child,
even so should one cultivate a limitless heart
with regard to all beings.
With good will for the entire cosmos,
cultivate a limitless heart:
Above, below, & all around,
unobstructed, without enmity or hate.
Whether standing, walking,
sitting, or lying down,
as long as one is alert,
one should be resolved on this mindfulness.
This is called a sublime abiding
here & now.
Check out this Thai massage video to see how it's different from regular Western style massage.

Blog entry: July 19
We had a light rain all throughout last night. It was so peaceful as it fell lightly on the thin clay roof top, not far from my head. And the air had cooled quite nicely by this morning. I enjoyed my quiet breakfast, as usual, on the porch overlooking the pond. Lately, Bang has been preparing a hot breakfast for me of rice porridge with an egg, onions, mushrooms, and spices mixed together. Always a nice added touch to the hot green tea and fresh fruit.
This week was the end of another five days of study with Pichest Boonthumme. For those of you keeping track, I have spent two days at Loi Kroh, six days at Baan Hom Samunphrai, and thirteen days with Pichest. I will attend one more class with Pichest on Monday before I start to head home on Tues.
Pichest is quite a character; a mix between a peaceful and humorous Buddhist monk who preaches 'not to worry', and an eccentric Thai massage teacher that has so mastered his craft, that we students feel lucky just to be in his presence, in the hopes that we might even begin to scratch the surface of what Pichest is capable of doing with another human body.
