Kripalu Center is in the heart of the Berkshires, situated on a lake and with property adjoining Tanglewood the summer home of the Boston Symphony.
One of the highlights of this last retreat was doing a silent hike down through Gould Meadows, along the Stockbridge Bowl and then up to Tanglewood during a James Taylor concert.
As we turned from the lake up the long hill to Tanglewood, James Taylor broke into “Sweet Baby James.” At that point a few folks broke silence to sing along.
Late evening, sun setting, birds chasing bugs in the meadow, bunnies at play, a group of meditating hikers breaking into song.
One of Those Moments.
