Already July... half of the year has gone by, where did it go?
I am not sure about you, but here in Bali time seems to fly at an incredible speed. The first part of 2009 has been very busy, besides our regular ''Escape the World'' retreats, we have welcomed many guest teachers to Kumara and most important all of them left happy and most have already booked their retreat for next year. So all is well, the team is growing and Iyan and I are grateful, healthy and deeply satisfied. Moreover, we just came back from a short and nice holiday in Malaysia and Thailand!
