I visited the Suzuki Zen Museum in Kanazawa, Japan earlier this year. The simplicity of the museum brought me to tears. It was such a profound experience of how an open and peaceful environment gave me the emotional space to feel.
I had been travelling by myself for almost 3 weeks at this point, and was beginning to feel the loneliness sink in.
The time in the museum allowed me to feel into the loneliness. I had a little cry. The Japanese were completely unsure of how to react to my tears!
Through feeling into it I was released from it.
I did some kinesiology on myself. I felt lighter, still a bit lonely, and definitely more Zen.
