Recovery

Posted: 13 September, 2016 By Blog

This months Newsletter.

 

The nail polish worn at my dear friends wedding a week ago is starting to fade - as is the euphoria of my barefoot birthday party from a month ago and the force of the bad cold I entertained for the past two weeks. It got me thinking of how we need time for recovery from both the difficult, challenging experiences, stresses and traumas of life as well as the wonderful, memorable, glorious experiences. Recovery. Even if you have a job you love, like I am fortunate to have, recovery is needed after any intense period of work.

Just as we cannot continuously move our bodies without time for recovery, in Spiritual Sadhana, after practice we need recovery time to absorb our new dimensions - before we can expand to the next.

Recovery. When a relationship ends, when we finish a big project that we have been absorbed in, when we have moved beyond our borders in any way, we find the value of and need for recovery.

We cannot successfully spend a whole day awake without some sleep to recover from it.

The yogic practices themselves are a path of Recovery,
Recovering our Self.
Recovering our True Nature.
Daily does it!

If you wish to recover some practice inspiration then I invite you dearly to our weekly classes, monthly events and term highlights as we move towards winter, the Northern Nature's own time of recovery.

We can experience this by choosing to do something new every now and then, to explore ourself in a new context.

March Newsletter

It got me reflecting on the rhythm and pace in which many of our work lives run. Many of us live with a time constriction that we either imposed upon ourselves or was imposed on us by our circumstances. What if we did not retire at 65? What if we ''retired'' at 30? What if we study at any age, work or not work at any age? I wonder what would happen if I saw each day as the first of eternity? If life is not limited by an idea of time then perhaps the pace and rhythm we are maintaining towards a defined timeline can change and we can look upon what rhythm and pace and activities best serves us and others RIGHT NOW where we are in life. Just this morning I read in a script: the only place where time is eternal is in the now. How relaxing that is to me.

April Newsletter : EMF Care and More

Everything is energy, and as a yogini and practitioner aiming to master my own energy, I have been drawn to look into the modern situation on the radiation emitted by the technology that we so depend on. Not all of this exposure is beneficial for us, and in looking into devices that help balance, counter-balance or even transmute the negative to the positive I have started with one product and company, that came recommended to me by a student, where I have found the systems to work well.
