My granddaughter and I whiled away a day strolling around Sanur….
There always seems to be something different to catch one’s eye….
Rissani is located on the edge of the Sahara close to the border with Algeria. Once a thriving centre during the 14th to 18th centuries, it is now quiet and somewhat smaller in size. There were many treasures to be found….. a local guide took us through the following area …..The door into the souk was said to be hundreds of years old
Im unclear what kinds of wood were used in the building of these places. There are no trees growing in the vicinity.
The roof of this building was incredibly high and after centuries still solid as.
With our guide we wandered through the labyrinth of dim walkways passing by many doors all unique and different.
Once a water fountain.
Cats seemed to be everywhere in Morocco…..some were irresistable!…
There is something blessed about taking time out to meditate,to explore my inner world and it’s connections with outer reality. The silence is deep, the group feeling is warm and welcoming and our teachers mindful of the insights, joys and sorrows that may come up.
Time passes… noticing happens…
Sitting in the generous shade gazing outwards….
Multi coloured parrots cruise the grass looking for tidbits…
Rocks stand steady…lichens soak up the sun’s rays as they spread across the surface of the rocks.
Galahs roosting in the tops of the eucalypts
The bell keeps us anchored to time passing…
Contemplating the universe…the clouds, the rocks, the curves, life and death
Each day the sun rose…
In gratitude to those with me on retreat
Abundant thanks to Anna Markey and Jason Siff teachers of Recollective Awareness Meditation
