    My friend and I were just talking about about this. We're pumped to attend.

      Hey Mia, space is filling up. Didn't see your name on the registration, but they're extending the registration until 3pm if you'd like to register. Link is above.

        Max, so after the awesomeness of today, I think I'll become a tea master...haha, but in all seriousness, thanks for encouraging this great 'to do.' It's totally awesome to see the blending of on and offline realities. YAY! I hope the discussion went well for y'all. I still have a million questions and I can't wait to dive in further.

          Thanks, Mia. So glad you could come, and that you enjoyed the day. I had a wonderful time too. True exploration. Onwards!

    This sounds so great, Max. I wish I could make it. I'd be really interested in that "eating meditation" part!
