In the spirit of thanksgiving, Here's how to express words of gratitude in 50 languages:
This was so-not the planned silence... Kankana played an ancient harmonium, into beautiful - swimming melodies called Ragas. Could I surrender to the new plan?
It's not an accident that our postures are named for things the ancients noticed in their natural world. We 'do' the tree pose to awaken the qualities of tree in ourselves. Strength and suppleness, our ability to reach high, from a very grounded place... Our ability to selflessly provide food and shelter for others.
Thanks to Valerie, we have a new word: Blisscombubulated. That blissed, somewhat confused feeling where you come out of Shavasana after a particularly good Yoga class. Our lost and found bin is always overflowing with 'forgotten' items. Most of them make it back to their people. I've just posted the invite to the Yoga and Meditation workshop on Sept 27'th. After a nice Heart Opening class, Ani Desal, a Tibetan Buddhist Nun, ordained by the Dalai Lama, will lead us in a beautiful meditation. I hope you can join us, this level of meditation instruction is rare in our parts. Take care! I'll see you in class soon. john P.S. just two spots remain in the fall Yoga Retreat I've got about 5 "maybes" for the two spots. Let me know right away if you'd like to join us. to be fair to all, the first "Yes" gets the spots.
