Ummmm...will there be any transportation available to and from the airport? (I could take a cab or bus, I'm sure, but just curious to see if you or someone else might be able to scoop me up.) I'm very much thinking of jumping in on this one...if there's still space!

Yay! Awesome!

Yes, there's still room.

I'll make sure you have transportation from the airport; just let me know what your plans are.

I am locked and loaded; I am ready to roll; I am willing and able; I am registered!

Now, I do expect a few things, and if these criteria are not met, I will be severely dissappointed. Here's what I'm expecting:
--Group levitation on the first day, after we all do the "Akasha - Lightness of Air" sutra
--Visitation from higher, cosmic beings because of our greatness
--Such a supreme level of ecstatic bliss that we're barely able to speak due to the overwhelming pleasure flowing through the atmosphere
--And brownies

Kidding, kidding. I'll just take some good fellowship and inner silence. Really looking forward to it. Love to whippoorwill, and to anyone else attending.

Unfortunately, there is not an emoticon that depicts the sound of a trumpet blaring. If there were, I would post that to echo the call for increased attendance. [trumpet blaring!!! ]

Bravo, Anima, bravo! We'll rock the house with stillness and the nerves will dissolve in waves of tranquility.

Exceedingly excellent enlightenment emanated effulgently, effacing even excessive expectations. Epic!

And the brownies were excellent, too! I enjoyed our walks through the woods.

It was calming, musical, warm, and magical. Truth was confirmed in friendship. On our last night, I wrote this haiku, as whippoorwill’s Core Story Haiku thread has been very dear to me over the months.

Heart

We’ve shared, Joy--anew!
“You’re my friends, and I love you.”
Likewise, yeah, warm--true.

Dear friends and AYP community, thank you.

Just to echo Anima's sentiments, I want to thank Liz for organizing such a spectacular weekend. It embodied the essence of fruition, and yes, the brownies were life-changing.

The location was bubbling with high resonance and purity, so the red carpet was already laid out for us, and all we had to do was stroll down the lane. We did a full array of practices, went on long walks and talks, improvised musically, and built a self-inquiry-based microcosm/mandala made of raw food (which we collectively ate! ).

The only regret I have is that we couldn't stay longer, but upon arriving home, I'm already feeling the lasting effects and know that the short, but extremely potent, weekend will carry powerful, long-term implications.

Thank you again, Liz, for taking care of us like a Divine, Radiant, Cosmic Goddess, and thank you, Anima, for being a real warrior and greatly enhancing the experience.

Many more to come. Catch y'all on the flipside of vibrant tranquility.

(P.S. Just wanna give a shout out to Jeff for taking Anima and me out to a real deep-dish Chicago pizza dinner).
