To my family and friends (Shambhala-related included):

It was with some hesitation, but also some curiosity, that I walked into the Center of Living Peace. What was meditation? Would I be required to "ooohhh" and "uhhhmmm" here? What did "Buddha" have to do it?

After choosing a place to sit, I adjusted my behind, testing it for plushiness. Much like a child in a theme park, everything seemed bright, vivid, and new. New people, new sensations, new patterns. Eventually, I would meet everyone, and soon be the one approaching others with a "Hello, how'd you hear about us?"

I came to meditation with no expectations and reality hit me over the head. Having experienced the present moment, I could no longer ignore the truth. I had been needing to meditate, for a very long time. 

Eventually, I would go to sittings held not at Center of Living Peace but at our own location. Like the Center of Living Peace, it's become our home. However, we are looking for something more permanent. Preferably larger, with more than one bathroom, a larger fridge.

We appreciate everything (and everyone) that has led to this moment. We now have a timeless opportunity to grow and expand. Please help us!

Thank you, this means a lot to me. :)
