Thank You Very Kindly

There are other groups in Chicago that you may also wish to contact. What a great city...

Mike if you are a bit restricted in mobility I wonder if you would be interested in an idea I was thinking of putting forward and that is to try to promote the virtues among those who may have a lower limb disability or suchlike, of the pranayamas of the Yantra Yoga system as presented by Namkhai Norbu. The Yantra yoga looks fairly terrifying at first, but the real aim is to develop the capacity to work the pranas into the central channel, purification and a concrete contemplative experience, etc.
Why not have a word with the local YY instructor and see if they could get some sort of specialized programme going, maybe visiting you if thats not too difficult.
As Rinpoche always reminds us, collaboration, integration and working with our circumstances is what we all need to do.
Did you receive transmission yet ? 18th July,(at 4am, in the UK) is the transmission on the Anniversary of Guru Padmasambhava which might be an auspicious idea.
All the best
