All in a Day

Yoga, New LifeWeekdays at New Life Foundation begin at 6 a.m. with yoga, mindful (silent) breakfast at 7, and morning meeting at 8.

At morning meeting, we get our teamwork assignments and new arrivals introduce themselves.  Today we had 3 to welcome: Ronald, a social worker from The Netherlands; Frank, Asa and their toddler, corporate bailouts, now permanent travelers; and Stefano, a Swiss/Ecuadorian living in Panama.

One volunteer said his goodbye with a quote from Gandhi to describe our personal struggles with the demons within:  “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you and then you win.”

Resident Josh announced he was organizing a trip to tonight’s AA meeting in Chiang Rai.

Today’s schedule of activities is posted on the blackboard:

8:30 Community work; life coaching for residents

1:30 Community work for volunteers; Relapse Prevention Workshop for residents

4:00 Tai Chi

5:00 Yoga

5:30 Steam Bath

7:45 Community Meeting (we’ll share “what we learned today”)

New Life is busy, far from boring, once in awhile even exciting.
