Today, I’ll continue and speak about the affects of the hurricane that came upon us three weeks ago…the hurricane was an awakening experience and reminded us of our inter-connectedness, and that there is no such thing as a separate self-sustaining individual self.

Hello,

The Baja Western Onion ran our ad again where it stated the dharma talks are hosted at Plaza Antigua. Therefore, we’ve decided not to host the dharma talks at Nancy Serfas and Tom Carrol’s house. The dharma talks will continue at Plaza Antigua until further notice. Please forward and spread the word. Thank you.

Robert shares his thoughts and experiences from  Odile (category 4 Hurricane), “Hurricane Odile is noted to be the most powerful hurricane ever recorded on the Baja Peninsula. We experienced its force and it came in the middle of the night. We were hoping Odile would head out to sea and spare us the full brunt of its power, but it didn’t.”  It made a direct hit on the Baja peninsula and the village where we live.

“So in the middle of the night, holding our loved ones and our animals near us, we huddled in our houses, finding what we thought was the safest place to be…it was pitch dark and when the force of the winds and the rains came, the sounds were horrendous. We couldn’t see what was happening outside, but could easily imagine the devastation. We really didn’t know what was occurring outside, but what was really obvious was how important it was to be with those we love. To hold them close and think of the loved ones who are not here, because the possibility of death and grave injury was very real, inescapable.”

Robert K Hall at Casa Manresa by Alvaro Colindres

Dharma Talks With Robert K. Hall - Dharma Talks and guided meditation with Robert K Hall will resume in Todos Santos at the new temporary location. We thought this Sunday (September 28th) 10-11:30 a.m. might be a good time for the community to sit together and reflect on the aftermath of Hurricane Odile. The dharma talks will be hosted at the Plaza Antigua Building (next door to Coldwell Banker Riveras’ Office), located on the corner of Calle Juarez and Topete. A special thank you to Doug, Bonny and Alexis Burns for providing the space free of charge. Any donations collected will go toward Todos Santos hurricane relief efforts. As usual, the talks will be recorded and posted on the blog site. Join us for our 13th season and we look forward to seeing you in Todos Santos. ☞ Alvaro  Colindres
