Thank you everyone for your comments on this wonderful meditation with John. It's been a joy to film and get to know John over the years. As an international teacher trainer you see the impeccable wisdom and depth of knowledge that is shared through his teachings. And then you see the other side... Humble, compassionate, giving and kind. Personally, I think he lives by the motto: Before enlightenment chop wood... after enlightenment chop wood. Although I think in his case it might be to clear the drains ;-) Thank you John for sharing with us.
