Last night my son was digging around his bed before going to sleep looking for a certain stuffy (I love and am proud that he still acknowledges them at 10 years old!). Upon finding it, he laid back and turned it over and over until something caught his eye- an unworn spot underneath the lip of a label. His fingers probed it for a bit and without warning he burst into tears. Curious, I watched him work through his feelings and in a lull from the sniffles and storm I asked him what was happening inside. He shared that he couldn’t believe that there was still a part of bunny that was untouched and unworn by all of the love and memories from the past 10 years.
Gosh, it was a moment.
Our practices are just like that. We work daily with the body, mind and spirit that we have and then in an instant there is the noticing and understanding that there is still so much of ourselves left yet to discover and nurture. It is a fantastic journey that spans a lifetime.
As we enter January more fully, we invite you to take the time to pour over the pages of your own book, delighting in the discoveries as you shine a light on the darker passages and savor the lines that you know by heart. In the middle or thereabouts, you may flip over to a page that may have been scanned over or missed and is waiting to be seen, heard and touched upon.
Our door is open and waiting for you to create the space to unfurl your mat to experience your self in all its wonder.
We so look forward to practicing with you soon!
