Sacred Thread Update: February New Moon 2019

Hello Wild Beings of Body, Mind, Heart and Soul- Yoga is the practice of relationship, as is life. We are in relationship to everything all the time. Pause for a moment and consider this…right now you are relating to the words you are reading, the chair you’re sitting on, the air you’re breathing and the tree outside your window. You (and I) are even…

This is all. Experience only is the successful persuader. ~ Mary Oliver When death comes – Like an iceberg between the shoulder blades, I want…

Sacred Thread Update: December Edition

Hello Dear Ones- This year has been deeply challenging for so many in multiple ways.

Sacred Thread Update: November Edition

Hello Dear Ones- Kayf haal-ik? This beautiful greeting in Arabic asks… How is your heart, right now, in this moment? What is the current state of your soul and how are you managing? Truly, I wish to know. My heart is heavy. It seems perpetually heavy these days as if it has somehow grown in capacity and at the same time taken on…

Sacred Thread Update: October Edition

Yes, I teach yoga

I am tired. Tired of constantly defining what I offer as a yoga teacher in negative terms. Yes, I am a yoga teacher, no, I don’t teach hot yoga, fast yoga, or yoga for your butt. Yoga is now a common term in our language and as such has certain associations that come with it.…

Our Sense-able Body

In my last post I said that I would rather show up in my body, with all it’s challenges, to heal and be present than dissociate. This is an ongoing learning and as I become more comfortable being in my body I am discovering my sensible self. This is not the pragmatic and rational part…
