    Chapters 21-        by Adams


    How does one write a history about the wind or the warmth of the sun on the body?  Every day PaB looks much the same. There are four sessions six hours apart. Like the wind, people come and go, different groupings of people. There are large groups and small groups and sometimes no groups. There is the ebbing and flowing of energy like cloudy and sunny days. At times Pema has thrown out a challenge to stir us up and it generates shared energy and we find ourselves all excitedly talking about our common experiences. Other times energy has come from one or more of us getting stirred up and describing our own surprising experiences. Sometimes others can relate to our experience, sometime not, but always to the passion of reaching out to that which we do not see, or we think we do not see.

    Documentation and Voices

    There is a plethora of documentation of the pre-history, and first year, of Play as Being. Much of the record is not a collection of facts but a chorus of voices. Each voice is different; each has its own very personal viewpoint. Each voice struggles with words to try communicate that experience to others. Play as Being is a mixture of voices that includes those with experience from long years of practice and contemplation, and those with undisciplined experience, and, of course, everything in between. The best way to grasp at the first year of Play as Being, then, is to let these voices speak out as much as possible.

    Author's Apology

    This is no way a dispassionate account. I am a participant. My own voice comes through a little louder, or more wordy, than other voices in this Chronicles. It is my experience I can best describe. If descriptions of my struggles help someone to to see that their own struggles are not without end, my poor effort will have been worth it. In PaB we help each other. Some of my own experience has been cyclical to a degree. I find myself coming back to the same problem again and again with a slightly different perspective, each time spending less effort until I learn to step out of that particular circle.

    Note on the Structure of the Chronicles 

    The structure of this Chronicles is a little arbitrary. My own experience began in the first week of June and the story starts there. Then this Chronicles moves to the pre-history and to the actual beginnings of Play as Being in April and moves forward picking up my story again in the latter half of June. From there the Chronicles is structured into months for convenince of size chunks. As with all things in PaB, the structure too is best taken lightly. As hard as I looked I have mostly been unable to put any real structure to the group's experience. Someone wiser than me may in the future do that if it is appropriate. Between the month sections, there is an interview with a guardian tas a reminder that it is our voices that are the story of Play as Being.

    Kira Institute

    Play as Being is a part of the Kira Institute and at the end of the first year, many of the participants are active in activities of both. This has given many of us new opportunities. We grow not only in knowledge of ourselves, but having been given tools with which to work, we test ourselves to do things we may only have dreamed about before.
