Answer: Working in the seminar consumes a great amount of energy and nerves, both mental and emotional. A person expends a lot of effort.
After the workshop it is good to eat together, to have a small amount of alcohol, about 50-100 grams, just in order to get energy. Not for a good mood!
The good mood and the other things need to come from the unity between us. We drink a little not in order to be happy or become relaxed and calm and not to make it easier to become integrated into each other. It is just the opposite. It is preferred that it would be difficult for you to become integrated with others. You need to overcome all of that. This is that same mountain that we need to climb in order to reach the palace of the Creator. Thus we are talking here only about obtaining energy.
After the workshop, the best thing is not to talk to anyone about anything, but to immediately go to sleep. You are taking with you the most precious thing that you acquired in the workshop. Then, for you, sleep will be a continuation of the attainment, and the morning lesson will be a continuation of the sleep.
