It’s been a long time coming since I first conceived the idea of “ditching school for a year to train with the monks at the shaolin temple” , but the time has finally come.
I arrived at Deng Feng today, and will head up the mountain tomorrow and as my American College counterparts would do, start the “move-in” process. Training will probably start as soon as I am moved in, so like tomorrow.
But wow, I am finally here. Only now do I realized how crazily unprecedented my whole “gap year idea” is. Honestly, this isn’t a very popular route for, well, anyone. But it is this level of uncertainty and room for (growth, exploration, pain, knowledge and etc.) that excites me.
Stay tuned, cause I hope to have an audience along for my journey.
