Has this year got you feeling like you have your head caught between your legs? Perhaps that's an understatement. When the wheels of everyday life come to a crash, what's there to do to feel sane? After we've sulked, continue to grieve over what's been lost and maybe even drown ourselves in ice cream or whatever mutes the pain, we're still here now.
I find it interesting that in the eye of the storm sits complete calm, so they say. Our head between our legs may not be comfortable, but it's surely a different perspective. One that can let us see which of our previous ways may have actually been upside down. Or, were preventing our own flexibility for change and growth. Or, were undermining our ability to transcend obstacles and surrender to creativity that flows through all of us--when our minds aren't busy in default mode.
Change can be magnificent, said the caterpillar, as I've witnessed some of you creating your delicious lemonade with this year's lemons. It's a state of mind, as yoga teaches, beyond the physical poses. How can we be the eyes, centered in higher vision, throughout whatever storms arise? Not expecting perfection, but aligning with our pure potentiality, knowing that we're in continuous evolution despite each's unique pace.
These past months have inspired new offerings that enliven me to share with you. But here's the soonest upcoming...To bring conscious closure to this eventful 2020, join me online with a soulful community on three Thursdays, 6-7pm PT in December for a workshop series birthed from last month's virtual retreat, Tools for Clarity. Each session includes 15 min. chakra-focused all-levels yoga postures and breath work, 10 min. guided meditation and 35 min journaling and group/partner conversation. Each session builds on the next:
12/3 Root in Clarity & Alignment
12/10 Empathy Empowers Peace
12/17 Transform Obstacles into Opportunity
We'll dive into practical tools to become aware of our unwanted daily patterns and choose freedom and to strengthen our volition and skillful capacity with wisdom from the Yoga Sutras, mindfulness practices, Nonviolent Communication, activational thought leaders and most importantly, from within. Let's connect in meaningful ways and invite grace as we transition out of 2020.
May you ride the waves with peace in your center.
