After an fantastic holiday Mindshare.LA (see pics), I went up to San Francisco for Christmas with the sweet mother! Soon after Christmas I attended my 3rd Vipassana retreat in North Fork, CA. It was yet again a superb experience and very tranquil way to enter the new year.. In fact I was asleep well before midnight 😉 More details notes to follow..
After creating Taco Havoc for Halloween, I finally said goodbye to a hellish end of 2008 with an EPIC adventure to Baja, Mexico. 2009 blasted off in LA with unparalled energy; the majority of my time spent on a ‘so far sold out in ’09’ Mindshare. Another exciting development has been the creation of Mindshare Labs, a group of highly talented techies and scientists who create interactive installations for Mindshare and other events. On a personal level, February was a cleansing month: I completed my 2nd, 10 day Vipassana sit, did a 14 day Master Cleanse and gave a lot of possessions away to charity! And of course no winter would be complete without a little snowboarding 😉 Now I’m sitting in Dallas, getting ready to attend SXSW…
** NOTE: If you’re intending to go on a Vipassana retreat, you might want to read this afterward – not because it’s negative, it may inject certain expectations that could make your sit more challenging. On the other hand, if you do read it, remain equanamous ;)”
I recently went to North Fork, CA on a mission to explore Vipassana, an ancient Indian meditation technique. As usual I was impulsive, not fully informed and absolutely unprepared for the experience; the perfect start to any story…
