I took a one day workshop last Friday - it's on composting from a biodynamic perspective.
And I'm sitting there as they talk about cow horns and creating environments and leaving nature to do the work it needs to and moon cycles - and I think, hey wait a minute, this is Ayurveda....but we work with bodies.
And like a few times before in my life my head is whizzing "where have I been and I seem to be the only person here that doesn't know about this..."
There is a woman that sells biodynamic wine at the local farmers market. I think??? I've seen her before. I generally don't drink that much so maybe that's why I haven't bothered to find out what she sells. But there it was! The cow horn sitting on her table. And I bought some. And I heard her story of how they have run a successful farm using biodynamic principles for over 30 years.
And it showed me that you can't know everything. You might think you see, even the same looking people in a small town, but everything comes in layers. You peel one off yourself and the environment you're in looks different. That woman is no longer just a wine seller to me, she comes with an integrity I'm looking for. I didn't know the right questions to ask.
I wonder what else I have my back turned to. This life just keeps unfolding.
