Dropping Keys

Close to Your Soul HafizDuring one stage of my yoga teacher training, I once had an up-close and personal class with Donna Farhi, a wise and well-known teacher’s teacher and published author from Australia.  Though she is widely celebrated for her many books on the asanas (yoga postures), this session was more of a dialogue and mentorship talk about the role of a teacher.

Her key message was, “Send your students on errands.”   At first her meaning was unclear, and then I understood – and continue to more and more as the years go on… Continue reading

A Week in the Life of a Tree

Tree One WeekAs we meet the first autumn in our new home, this beautiful tree greets me as I leave my house each morning, and watches as I return inside at night.  We come to know each other. This is not a big tree, though it is interesting, and I can see it is strong and vital.  I see life passing through this tree, as it passes through me.  As the leaves begin to turn, I realize that in even just one day, it changes… The fluctuations of states and circumstances, colors, and moods are profound, yet often subtle in passing.  This is one week in the life of a tree.

Inspiring Light

cropped-Stars-jar-e14390884354205.jpgThe inspiration for this site is just that… inspiration! The light in every day, the light in each of us, and the light of all Creation constantly creating!  Here, my humble home projects are how that manifests – and in my work outside the home, it’s in teaching yoga, meditation, and spirituality, among other healing techniques.

There’s a lot of intersection – though sometimes it may not seem so, if you boil it down to simply whipping up a batch of homemade detergent or shabbying up a cabinet. ;)  Though if there’s one thing we learn in the practice of yoga and meditation, it’s that spirit is to be found in all things – all beings, and all activities – from the most holy to the most mundane – and in each moment.
