I must confess that I felt some trepidation about leaving Mexico, 28C and traveling to Helsinki where it was minus 8C. However, when I arrived it had warmed up to around zero in the day!! The warmth of the people and the response to the teachings more than made up for the cold. Stina and Eeva went more than out of their way to make sure I was well taken care of. Stina gave up her flat and kept taking me to really nice restaurants. Eeva also made sure all big and small details were covered for the retreat outside of Helsinki. I very much hope I can return to Helsinki and continue teaching the students there.
