Very nicely put. I can empathize. I've experienced (in small, limited ways) the sort of phenomenon you've described, of talking to the class while doing something else to uke without "thinking". Strange and wonderful.

Incidentally, in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints ("Mormons" basically), the most sacred room in a temple, the Celestial Room, is often spoke of as a place where the "veil" between heaven and earth is "thin" and the connection with the divine is at it's closest.

I love reading interpretations of thin places. Yours is an excellent one. My favorite quote in this post is, "The dojo is a "Thin Place". The next time you cross the threshold honor that; and if you get that glimmer, then come back and honor it again."

Very insightful. Thanks for that.
