Hello, my friends!
Thank you. 🏽
Thank you for being here. For showing up for yourself in this way. For supporting your desire to breathe, and pause, and lead with love.
And thank you for being part of this community. You are a thread that helps lift me up, and I am so grateful for the buoyancy.
I am deeply humbled by the responses to my question last week: Why do you read these newsletters? Your answers were incredibly thoughtful and heartfelt. (Seriously, you blow me away!) I read and appreciate every single word; I'm delighted that I got to speak to a few of you in person.
While I am still integrating your answers, your input is already carving new pathways forward. Of course, I am open to your feedback at any time. All responses are welcome, so keep them coming.
Another note of thanks: I am excited by your HUGE interest in the Gratitude Gathering on Friday, June 9. What a beautiful collection of souls already signed up! Reminder, this mini-luxury-immersion is happening at "The Hook" starting at 7 PM. We'll breathe, and meditate. We'll enjoy chanting and immerse ourselves in a sound bath. Then, we'll have dessert and a beverage.
Events here always sell out quickly and space is limited; I encourage you to sign up today. Registration is simple. Start by scrolling down Satya's Events page to the Breathwork, Meditation & Chanting section.
In closing, I want to draw your attention back to both of the quotations at the top. ☝🏽
Here's a simple, powerful breath practice to open up your heart and ignite self-love:
♥️ Find a comfortable seat and an elegant spine;
🧡 Hold your right palm, facing down, six to nine inches above your head, blessing yourself;
💛 Bend your left arm, allowing your elbow to gently rest along your left side;
💚 Your left palm is open and facing forward at approximately shoulder height, blessing the world;
💙 Gently close your eyes, and direct your internal vision towards the center of your chin.
💜 Find long, deep, even breaths. Try and extend both the inhale and the exhale to a count of 8, 10, or 20 . . . depending on how your lungs are feeling.
🤍 Continue for 3 - 11 minutes and enjoy the afterglow of 💗❣️
Try gifting yourself this practice 3, or 5, or 7 days in a row, and I'll see you right here again next week.
