Our professor Bruce took us on a 5 days, zen meditation retreat. Yes, a meditation research retreat. How cool / weird / awesome is that?!

We spent 8 hours each day not talking, and then talked about not talking over dinner. Wasn’t all that different from normal research, in my experience. The venue was stunning. A gorgeous, isolated guest farm about two hours South and East of Cape Town.

Thank you Nadeem, Arun, Gilad, Eli, and Martin for a great week … of not talking.

On departure we learned the next group to come through the guest farm is an orgasm retreat. I think I signed up for the wrong week.
