Amazing Ammaji Ananda; 3rd Place AG in Her First Ever Tri = Interview!

Joy gives a much needed hug to Dewachen moment’s after crossing the Finish Line during yesterday’s “Tri The Rim” triathlon…it was Joy’s first tri ever and her first competition as a mother…and she podium’d! Joy prepared mentally using my Pre-Event Meditation for the week leading up to the race. During the race, she used the the HP Yoga™ PROP WORKOUT mantra; “hum SAH!” to get her through her weakest event; the run. Whenever we apply our minds to confront and transform our weaker areas, therein lies the hidden, sacred kingdom of Wholeness! I grabbed that ever-involved with her baby girl new triathlete and coaxed a few words from her today…enjoy and be inspired by our First Lady of WF once again!!! Congratulations, baby!

i took this shot after picking up Ananda just south of Baker’s Bridge a few days ago after she did some triathlon training. as a family, we then threw sticks into a creek, watched Wapiti Beings relax into a sunset, and just enjoy other basic family necessities. such sweetness in the moment is the Blessed Common Denominator to living in Durango…

The Final (Chairlift) Ride of 2010-2011 Goes DEEEEP into my SnowSoul….

friday was the last day i could ski at Purg on my weekday-only season pass…

What better way to end my formal ski season than to take a Last Dance upon those shimmering slopes with my precious daughter, our Rinpoche Dewachen? so, we did…just Daddy and Daughter…cranking the last few turns of a Heaven of a season…here are a few Heart Hits, both photographically and in verse of what felt to me to be a space and a time far suspended above the the comings and goings of the outer world…enjoy…

“In this pure land surrounded by snow-covered mountains, you are the source of all goodness and all happiness. Chenrezi Tenzin Gyamtso, may your lotus feet remain firm until the end of existence.” – from the Chenrezi Meditation Sutra which is the spiritual lineage of Wholistic Fitness™

first dandy

Dewachen, seated to Buddha’s (see Teaching below) right, beat me to the discovery of the First Dandy-lion of spring! No ONE has EVER beaten me to finding the first Dandy of spring…until now! With forecasted temps in nearing 60 degree’s this week up here at 6,512′, the locals are feeling like ponies bucking in their stalls. It might be a super a fast transition from ski racing to cycling, rock climbing, and all sorts of fun and frolic as Mother Earth sheds her brown-tufted camo apparel and slithers into her green rapture… we have a few more spots available for your own WF Private Intensive this summer! sign up here > WF Private Intensive or, WF 1/2 Day Training Camps

Ananda Toes The Start Line of a Triathlon, Plus; Chapman Hill is Durango’s Maker Hill of Champions…

I can’t say that “i’ve always dreamed of skiing with a daughter on winter afternoons in my hometown..” However, ilg’s gotta admit; this works too. I’ve lived in Durango most of my life…yet, sometimes, in mOMents like this one? i gotta pinch myself to see if i’ve not already ascended to some Heavenly Realm of the Buddha…i swear, in Durango the rivers, creeks, trees, snow, and birds all seem to me to sing the Dharma in the most seductive of ways…
