Recently in conversation with many volunteers here I’ve been asked about my experience during the Semester Intensive program. A four-month residential immersion course for 18-25 year olds, SI was a unique educational model of teaching authentic living and integrated practice. It was here that I first felt the compound bliss and blight of community living and began to honestly dig through my inner world for the answers to my life’s questions. Every time I explain what SI was like for me, I tend to find new ways of describing the feelings, the thoughts, the experiences. This time, I’m just going to share some pictures.
And a very happy birthday to Jen – my roommate during this adventure – who turned another year round the sun today. I love you!
