"The Tempest," Settling the Mind in its Natural State
Summary: This morning we returned to Settling the Mind in its Natural state, this time observing the foreground of events arising within the domain of the mind. Alan quotes two plays from Shakespeare ("The Tempest" and "As You Like It") which relate with uncanny precision to what we have been covering in this retreat. Enjoy the mostly silent practice! Some of you may recognize today's image as the painting "Miranda," (by John William Waterhouse in 1916), depicting a scene from "The Tempest."
