Dear Lizzie,

This will be fantabulous! I have a friend, Kate, who goes on meditation retreats all over the world, who loves them, who is the most tremendous human being ever! I don’t know what came first, meditation or her wondrous character, but if meditation has anything, even a small part, to do with thoughtfulness, kindness, patience & gentleness, it’s got to be awesome! It will take some getting used to, Kate says it doesn’t come easily, & still something she carves out time for every day. But she says it’s such a worthwhile endeavor! Good luck to you, Lizzie!
