Day 7 – Sunday, July 17, 2016

Posted by Mollie Oblinger, Associate Professor of Art, Ripon College

As we approached the first stop of the day, Insight Meditation Center, I could see a half dozen people walking slowly on the sidewalks in the residential neighborhood. They were moving so slowly that initially it seemed they were standing still. The contrast between this and the frenzied pace of our previous week was stark.

I had initially planned to type a reflective description of our day, but somewhere after the farm-to-table lunch while sitting on a rocky beach, I realized that words could not accurately tell the experiences we had Sunday. In the spirit of this seminar, I decided to take a different approach.
