    I seem to lack the capacity to be completely engaged in what ever endeavor I am pursuing: in other words, to be present at all times. I’m constantly thinking about the next task I have to do, or the next person I have to speak to. I want to break this syndrome, and have been trying for a long time without a great deal of success. I’m hoping this course will break that pattern. I would like to drink in every experience: to fully absorb it, whether it is extremely pleasurable or very difficult.
