Acupuncture Lecture and Meditation

Friday I went with my Big Aunt (Doddaatte), my eldest Aunt, to her country club for a nice presentation on Acupuncture and holistic healing.   After the presentation, we ran into my other Aunt(the mother of my cousin who was married).  We did some shopping in the sari tent and Doddatte looked like a kid in a candy store.  With all the beautiful colors and sarri’s, surrounding me,  felt my shopping bug slowly come back, but I put my shopping desires straight through a reality check.  My Big Aunt loves to buy sari's and add her own designs to them.  She is quite funny when she is trying to make a purchase because she keeps trying to get a lower price than the final price.  When the man finally said, “No more discount,” she just agreed to his price and bought the three of them.  As my Aunt and I were walking away to lunch, Dodatte was still in the tent doing some more browsing.  The veg lunch was amazing and I am loving being a vegetarian. 
To get to the point, the lecturer(Hollistic physician) was not great and the meditation was okay.  It felt a bit rushed and inauthentic, but it was nice.  The best part of her presentation was the handout she passed out.  I want to share these motivational tips with you to help you live your best life. Enjoy!
