Sophak, my country coordinator for my Cambodian experience tells me not to worry about sitting on the floor while meditating with the monks, that they will probably give me a cushion. But, even with a cushion, I’ll have to sit on the floor. Can I do that? Can I get up gracefully after sitting on the floor? Hmmm, my only concern. I’m not afraid to fly. I’m not afraid to learn the ways of a foreign country. I’m not afraid of anything, but being able to sit on the floor for a long time.
This is me trying to get up from the floor.
