Take 3. This is my third attempt at trying to communicate the process and lessons that have surfaced over the last few months and doing this with the hopes that I can leave you with a morsel of thought to chew on yourself. But, as I have witnessed in this process, it is not easy to distill this information down. So, what I offer today is 1 word that comes from Yoga Philosophy that poked it’s head back into my awareness this morning.
That word: Abhyasa.
Abhyasa: a commitment to consistent practice (Sadhana) over a long period of time.
With all the SHIFTS this winter season as brought to light for myself and I know for SO many of you, here is an invitation: commit to A practice. Commit to showing up for yourself in ONE way each day.
What this have done for me? It has helped me to drop out of my buzzing bee mind and drop into a deeper, more grounded relationship with my body (my intuitive knowing), my soul and the divine. When I consistently show up in this way for myself, small subtle transformation is inevitable. Yoga philosophy teaches us this through the act of Abyhasa.
From Sage Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras:
Tatra sthitau yatno abyhasa– ‘to be established in the endeavor’ abyhasa.
If you practice and become established in abhyasa this will lead you to samadhi.
My wish for you, if you take this invitation and implement it into your daily life, is that you too, began to experience the transformational power of a committed daily practice that presences you, brings you back to your intuitive center and connects you to something greater that is beyond this physical realm. Because, when you do show up for YOU daily, you are able to ride the waves of the constant ebb and flow that life is always offering us with much more ease and grace.
Wishing you a fabulous week leading up to this potent Full, Super, Blue Moon and Total Lunar Eclipse. And, if you have not been to a Moon Ceremony and it keeps tugging on your heart strings, I HIGHLY recommend you create the space in your schedule to join us this coming Friday, Feb. 2nd. Join our FB group here and sign-up to receive emails about each gathering here, it is a separate email list than this one. Thank you!!
Also, below, all class offerings for February. I am off island for most of March, so I hope to see many of you in the studio before I leave.
And, lastly, if you are interested in implementing a daily “practice” but need a little direction on how and where to begin, I am opening a few spaces in my schedule in February to facilitate this process and for private sessions. Click here to begin the conversation.
With gratitude and love,
