May is a beautiful month in New Mexico! The days are warming up into the 80s &amp; 90s and the nights are in the 50s &amp; 60s. We plan to break the seminar into three parts each day, beginning at 9AM and ending at sunset with the end of the day dedicated to extemporaneous food, leisure, review, testing &amp; practice.

There is plenty of camping area along Tularosa Creek and 160 acres at the ranch, so there should be plenty of room for everyone to put up a tent,  throw down a sleeping bag or sling a hammock. There are also many motels within 20 miles. Everyone is welcomed to bring their families, children under 18 are welcome to participate without charge.

Good Morning Gentlepeople,

We will be initiating an upgrade to the latest version of our forum software in preparation for a larger migration.  We have backed up the data and are slowly but slowly downloading everything else as well in case I need to roll back if any anomalies occur.

The change should take place at some point during the day today - 20150210 - and hopefully no one will experience any downtime.

Please let me know if you have any questions, comments or concerns.

Thanks and Peace,

It figures, it was one of our bigger Beat Down Chow Down events, and we didn't take a group picture. On the Studio Garuda Facebook page you can find photos of past events.

I generally do not post video as a rule. But I think that will be changing. I tend to joke a lot when I'm teaching and I try to be very careful about being misunderstood. That said, I'll be taping some stuff in the near future.

In other news, one of my students has moved to San Antonio Texas and has launched a practice group. Details to follow.

Good morning Miklos,
Your Welcome letter was sent at 7:29AM so you probably have it by now. No, there are no additional fees or anything - we just have a manual system and I'm off-the-grid on solar power, so I generally shut down by 7 or 8 PM, which was before your order came in, and I'm West of a huge mountain and don't get sun until about 9AM. So it is just a timing issue. I'm impressed with your desire to get moving on your KTS Journey, and can understand your impatience!

I think this IS the place to address whatever questions you may have about the GCC Downloadable because others may have similar questions. You have my personal email as well as the emails of some of the other leaders in KTS and you are welcome to communicate with any or all of us any time you have the desire.

I'm really interested in how your download goes, so please keep me posted - especially if you experience any problems.
Have an inspired day,
