There are times that we look forward to something with so much anticipation,and it is precisely @ that moment that the Universe plays a COSMIC JOKE on us..
That is what happened to Arthur Klein & his saga of what can now be termed a " 4 DAY TEACHER TRAINING". As I had mentioned earlier in the course of this blog, Arthur , was excited to finally participate in Bryan Kest's Training in Maya Tulum. However, due to a force of nature called Hurricane Dean, all good intentions were called off & logistically in shambles. Cancun was devastated by Hurricane Wilma in 2005, so Bryan did not want to put anyone at risk.
Long story short, Arthur was stranded in Mexico for a total of 4 days. Since it was a touch & go crisis situation involving the airlines, lodging, luggage, film equipment , etc. , he termed the ordeal " 4 Days of Meditation in Motion". The BLESSING that did manifest itself was that mobile phones were working and he was able to keep in constant communication with Bryan.
Back in Santa Monica, as Arthur was narrating the story, he mentioned that there were a couple of lessons to be gleaned from all this . It was all about SURRENDER, of yourself & your possessions . And that everyone was a STUDENT during this experience.
However, you won't see his name popping up as a teacher in any of the local studios as of yet. That will have to wait until he completes Teacher Training with Bryan same time in 2008. I photographed Arthur K. by the flyer board of the East Studio where his journey began in 2001,in CHIN MUDRA, just to seal the deal.
I did mention to Arthur in passing that I was thinking of enrolling in Jivamukti's 2008 Training . Have not inserted the word "Teacher" here as I don't feel that is my role or direction. Am more into the experience in order to imbibe in the light of Sharon, David & Manorama + learn from them. Ever the student , Arthur's retort to me was, " Do you want a roommate - When is it? "
