I am not a perfect student. I am easily distracted, I have a short span of attention. I am judgmental and my reactions are often habit driven. So there were lots of things I wanted to work on, to improve. But this course is not about making yourself a better person. It’s about knowing and loving yourself, accepting and appreciating. The only goal is there are no goals. By gently coaxing us to stop and listen to ourselves, Manuel makes us aware of just how extraordinary the ordinary can be, and suddenly life is better. It’s an awakening.
