"Let go of the disease of taking yourself too seriously.
You, as this body, are here only for the blink of an eye
in the cosmic scheme.
Expand your awareness, and in that,
you will let go of the burden of your life.
~ Anand Mehrotra
How did your seven days of heart awakening practice go?
No worries; I've got you. You can commit to this simple and impactful practice with the click of a button.
Really, your body, mind, and being are going to thank you, and YOU ARE WORTH IT!
Today, simply a moment to pause. And reflect.
The photo up above contains so, SO many layers of joy. These layers ripple out and fill my heart to the brim.
In brief: this is our niece, Anisa, and her husband, Abdoulaye.
Oh, and of course, our puppy, Javier.
Anisa met Abdoulaye after her two-year term serving in the Peace Corps in Guinea, West Africa. They spent their first year of marriage living together in Conakry. Then, Anisa returned to the United States and began the lengthy, arduous process of bringing her husband here.
After more than a year apart, shortly after Christmas 2022, Abdoulaye joined Anisa in Chicago.
They came to visit us this past weekend, and lucky for us, Abdoulaye brought his kora . . . the 21-stringed instrument you see him playing. (And yes, Javi IS indeed chewing one of those strings) 🐶
I CAN'T WAIT to incorporate Abdoulaye's music into a yoga + sound experience. Trust me, it's going to be incredible. As always, you'll be the first to know the details.
I love creating new offerings and powerful experiences for you. Like my daffodils that are just about ready to burst into bloom, I can feel our community preparing to pop into its busy season.
Keep watching these newsletters for additional ways we can move, breathe, meditate, and be together; I hope you see something that sparks joy so we can connect.
Speaking of connection, there are only a few slots left for this year's Art Of Connection!
It's truly a special, wonderful, experience.
And, just like the quotation at the top advises . . . it helps us STAY VAST! I hope you can join us. Saturday, June 24, 2 - 5 P. My home studio, downtown Douglas.
Big light and love,
