The Second Saturday comes quickly this month and we'll meet at the Being Peace Zendo (308 N. Drown in Ojai) this coming Saturday, September 8 at 9:00am. Kenley will be facilitating the morning of practice that will include sitting meditation, walking meditation, a short teaching on "Creating Balance" and some time to share together. 

Each September I (Kenley) return to one of my favorite songs by David Sylvian. It's only 1:17 long and it's a simple lyric. 

The sun shines high above 
The sounds of laughter
The birds swoop down upon
The crosses of old grey churches
We say that we're in love
While secretly wishing for rain
Sipping coke and playing games
September's here again
September's here again

With September comes the fall season (officially on September 22), a shifting season even here in Southern California with cooling weather and shorter days. I really appreciate this time of year, but it always bring more busyness. It is always the return to campus and the activity of learning for students and teaching for me. Sometimes I'm surprised by the shift and so it also becomes a time of reflection and for creating balance. The lazy days of summer end and the commute routine returns. Our theme this month will be on creating balance in our lives. 

I hope to see you here. 

Peace.
Kenley
