Hello All. Sorry for the lack of posts lately. Life has been CRAZY busy and a lot is going on. Time for a little catch up..
This Friday I interview all day at Loma Linda University in an attempt to get into their PhD in Marriage & Family Therapy program. They only take 5-6 students a year so keep year fingers crossed please. I think it would be kinda cool to be known as Dr. Chris.
Immediately following that, Saturday will be another big day. I will be taking precepts at Ocean Eyes Zen Center. I had been looking for a teacher for a long time and was fortunate enough to find Paul Lynch in my own backyard. It has been a great experience for me and I feel very lucky. I look forward to taking the next step to deepening my practice.
I'm also very busy on the providing therapy front. I'm now at three places; the Pepperdine Community Clinic, the Village of Hope, and for the County of Orange Health Care Agency. I can't tell you what an amazing experience its been working with such a variety of clients. They all have powerful stories and have been changing me in the process.
Lastly I'm still trying to work on my health. My partner in crime Courtney and I have been training for a while to do a triathlon. Well the Race on the Base in Los Alamitos took place this weekend in the rain and wind. We finished stronger then we both thought, and regardless of the conditions it was a lot of fun. I think the positive experience will carry us more seriously into our next event. Maybe we won't smoke cigars the night before the next event and actually train. Anyway, here's a couple of pics and I will get back on posting more often.
