"A wise man named Jun Po once said, 'Sitting meditation is a great luxury and a complete waste of time.' For me, sitting at a Hollow Bones is a necessary luxury in order to develop the discipline needed to transform my life. Transforming my life changes the lives of those close to me and there is no escape from sharing. It's been very helpful for my partner & I to have the shared experience of the 'Bones. Relationship is where the rubber hits the road".
