March Yoga Book Club

February is a short month so the next Book Club will be in March. We will be reading Wherever You Go, There You Are by Jon Kabat-Zinn. This book goes deeply into the practice of meditation for its own sake, and the importance of it bringing about a state of “mindfulness” and a condition of “being” rather than “doing”. Kabat-Zinn looks at meditation as a workout for your consciousness. The author presents meditation in ways that make it appealing and make learning meditation easy – but beware practicing it is not.

Come enjoy interesting dialogue, inspiring people, and a relaxing Sunday afternoon.

Love is in the air…

February is here and Valentines Day is around the corner. I have never been big on this “holiday”, but this year I am looking at it more positively. It is a time for me to be with my boyfriend, a day where I can ask him to not touch his iphone for the whole day! There is no need for presents, just his presence. The more I work on self-growth, and the more I clear out the clutter of my mind and body, the more I am able to open space to bring in more of what I love. So don’t look at Valentines Day as a ‘Hallmark Holiday’, but look at it as an excuse to express your love and passion to those who you care deeply for. The most you can offer is pure presence, and that is all I want for this ‘holiday’.

No matter how you feel about Valentines Day, try and create space and be open to whatever comes your way. Placing no judgments or expectations and just being open to receive – it may surprise you what comes your way.

Fear tells you, “I want to make you safe.” Love says, “You are safe.” Fear would walk you on a narrow path. Love says, “Open your arms and fly with me.”
