So this is where I am-- on a 45 foot sailboat with a group of people who are at least 15 or more years younger than me detoxing with food and doing yoga meditation. Let me say that the food has been interesting with a kale, lettuce, cucumber, apple, lemon, and olive oil drink for breakfast. All the meals are geared to detox the body from the bad stuff that we eat. I have not had this experience before. Being on the water makes me voraciously hungry, but today I have to say that the juiced vegetables have been filling.
I am along as an apprentice captain with the idea that I would be one of the main captains for these retreats in the future. I am not sure if I fit. I am not sure that I can make the witty conversation. Hell, I don't want to do that. I am lying in my bunk writing this and enjoying the solitude from the others.
This afternoon was the first yoga session. It is Kundalini style and the instructor studied in India. It was interesting with chanting, centering, and a lot of pelvic a d breath moves. I haven't done any of this. Man, I feel like a fish out of water who is doing my best to swim.
Tomorrow, the day begins at 6:45 AM with another detoxifying elixer, followed by yoga. Right now, I would like to be on my own boat chilling out. Tomorrow is another day. We shall see how the day goes.
