“Yoga begins with listening.
When we listen, we are giving space to what is.”
~ Richard Freeman
Thank you for meeting me here. I hope this letter brings a measure of comfort and support today.
This week, straight talk about the complexity of life.
And, one strategy that helps me navigate it all.
I have so much in my life that brings tremendous joy. And, there are challenges.
Sometimes, the joys and the challenges seem quite separate.
Other times, the joys and challenges are entirely intermingled.
This jumble of energy and emotion can make everything feel messy, or confusing, in my mind and body.
Through conversation, I realize I am not alone in this. I hear many of my friends talking openly about all they are grateful for.
These same lovely humans are also expressing their fears, weariness, grief, and their resignation. There's so much beauty in the world. And, there's so much sorrow. So much to worry about, be angry about, be sad about.
How do we stay steady, let alone remain a source of light, amidst it all?
Let's work on expanding our vision!
