"Listen, there's something I must tell. I've never, never seen it so clearly. But it doesn't matter a bit if you don't understand, because each one of you is quite perfect as you are, even if you don't know it. Life is basically a gesture, but no one, no thing, is making it. There is no necessity for it to happen, and none for it to go on happening. For it isn't being driven by anything; it just happens freely of itself. It's a gesture of motion, of sound, of color, and just as no one is making it, it isn't happening to anyone. There is simply no problem of life; it is completely purposeless play - exuberance which is its own end. Basically there is the gesture. Time, space, and multiplicity are complications of it. There is no reason whatsoever to explain it, for explanations are just another form of complexity, a new manifestation of life on top of life, of gestures gesturing. Pain and suffering are simply extreme forms of play, and there isn't anything in the whole universe to be afraid of because it doesn't happen to anyone! There isn't any substantial ego at all. The ego is a kind of flip, a knowing of knowing, a fearing of fearing. It's a curlicue, an extra jazz to experience, a sort of double-take or reverberation, a dithering of consciousness which is the same as anxiety."

To lose confidence in one’s body is to lose confidence in oneself.

-Simone de Beauvoir
.
Your body is your most devoted companion. It holds every bit of wisdom that you will ever need, plus more.

However, the culture that we live in teaches us to distrust our own bodies, and to believe that they are somehow “not enough”.

In the upcoming Fall Yoga Retreat, at Seven Oaks Retreat Center, I will guide you and small group of kindred spirits through simple and potent practices of coming back home to your body, to your breath, and to your most natural and healthy rhythms

All wounds are healed by feeling what you feel, and knowing what you know. As we all navigate this new world, it is important to create safe and sacred spaces for you to feel, breathe and know.

I know how painful it can be to look out at the world, and see all of the broken pieces, and feel helpless.
If you are sensitive you can see the sorrow behind people’s eyes, in their posture and in the spaces in between their words.
But, if you drop down one more level, woven into the sorrow is the most incredible kind of joy.
It is the joy of being alive in a body with a heart, a mind and soul.
I am a collector of wisdom words, and the words by #josephcampbell that are in the image have become embedded in me.
“Participate joyfully in the sorrows of the world”.

07/23/2021

On this full moon in July 2021, on the day that marks the Indian celebration of the revelatory and universal principle of the Guru, I bow to every teacher, every student, and every friend who has shared the path with me.

I am grateful for how the times of quiet solitude somehow always bring me to the next phase of a brighter radiant expression.

In my own practice I am learning how to let myself be seen. This lesson is showing up both in my body, and in my relationships.

As human beings who are highly social creatures, being ostracized or misunderstood by the culture is almost worse than death.

We all have our struggles with the cultural stories winning over our own truth.

My devotion is to knowing what is essential. I want to live as close as I can to my own beautiful truth. I want to help others to do this as well.

This is where life is magic, and synchronicities reveal themselves.

As a natural people pleaser and as someone who really wants to be liked by others, I have learned to contort myself to not rock boats, or disturb another's feelings.

I have learned to release much of that, but here I am, releasing more.

The beauty of any spiritual practice, is that you think you learn something, and then kapow, the ground gets pulled out from underneath you, and you realize that there is soooooo much more.

See you today over on Patreon. I’ll be live streaming a little story telling sesh.
Have you ever felt that you were meant for something bigger, or different, or that you just don’t know where you fit in?
I have felt that way my whole life, until I began to understand the difference between “fitting in”, and “belonging”.
We’re gonna talk about that today at noon.
When you join my Patreon, you are helping to support my next book writing project. I am preparing to write the book proposal in September. I’ll be sharing my journey with you. It’s gonna be a book about my own journey with life long depression and how I’ve learned to turn it into an asset for spiritual awakening.

I feel that the animals and plants of the world are my elders, and they are always teaching me something. It’s my job to pay attention and to continuously refine my studentship.
The butterfly teaches me about the process of becoming, and how it always includes a period of dark unknowing.
The chrysalis time lasts as long as is it needs to last, and there is no point in trying to make it go faster. Imagine if the caterpillar wasted its time and energy on beating itself up, worrying, and resenting who she was? How could it ever become who she was meant to be? The process of becoming a butterfly requires ever single ounce of her energy.
I remember this when I see them flying around with their paper thin wings made of every single bit of wisdom and beauty.
I love the caterpillar from Alice in Wonderland who poses the question, “whooooo arrreee youuuu?” Knowing full well that this is an unanswerable question as we are always becoming more, becoming new, and becoming again.

07/19/2021

I can feel my body slowly unraveling from the trauma of this past year of being so separated from each other. It’s like little bits of cement fall away, and underneath is this soft and tender tissue that holds beautiful breathing and feeling aliveness.
It is the vulnerability of being.
Parts of me have forgotten what it’s like to be in relationship with people.
I am slowly remembering myself. Limb by limb. Breath by breath.
I feel that it is time to gather with a small group to do some remembering work together.
I would like to gather about 10 people for a retreat this fall. Please tell me if you’re interested, and if so which weekend is best. We will stay semi local to Virginia.
