The weather, which had been fairly mild that day, suddenly altered, and a chilly wind poured into the valley from the surrounding mountains. After guiding the foundational practice of Wisdom Healing Qigong, LIFT CHI UP/ POUR CHI DOWN, we offered respects to the ancient shrine and the three of us went down to the little snack bar and ordered hot yuzu juice to warm ourselves.
I was waiting for Kuni and Mirai-san, who went to the restrooms and turned to find the most lovely, child-like being sitting next to me, smiling at me. Her energy was light--Light, itself. We gazed into each other's eyes and smiling for a while. I was utterly charmed by her innocence. Later, we saw her walking to her nearby home.
