You did a fantastics job of making it manageable for beginner while explaining the deeper meaning for seasoned practitioners. It's very generous of you to devote your time for this public good. I have practiced for nearly 10 years, and found a lot to learn from you and the other masters who have visited your class. In a small town (called Murray) in western rural Kentucky, we are fortunate to have a small local group. We haven't met in person since mid March (except now via Zoom once a week).
