I was surprised to have a smaller turn out for class at Robertson House today, but it was a nice change of pace for the class. I brought in the tingshaw bells for IOTW this week and wasn't sure how the class would respond. Luckily, the smaller class served this style of instrument better. It's interesting - in my daily RS classes, this instrument calms everyone down and brings us to a zen like state together and it did so tonight as well. I guess the Buddhists got it right with this instrument! I'm glad this IOTW went over so well today, I'm looking forward to bringing in some more exotic instruments - we'll see what next week brings at Robertson.
