Love Letter 5: to the assistants

Malin, whom you see on the picture, has been working with the shop stock ledgers for years. Thank goodness for her keen eye for numbers my shop and stock value has stayed true to reality. Dearest Magdalena who has an uncanny ability to structure, organize and take great care of the studio and associated tasks has resulted in my having no difficulty whatsoever over the last few years in being a studio owner. Emma, who was my first ever part-time employee, did a tremendous job of being Executive Assistant when I formed Lotus Lectures AB. Even now she spends a few hours a week making sure the website is updated and the receipts are written ...all the way from Australia.

The time that these three free up for me allows me to take time off from work. 
Allows me to restore and refresh myself with hobbies, friends, travel and sleep.

What makes assistance really helpful is when the work done is done so reliably that you can completely let go and know that it will be taken care of as requested, and often better than requested. I also appreciate how much I enjoy your company as we go about our business. I thank you lovingly for your good, good work. I am so lucky to have hired your help.'' 

This newsletter is a good time to let us know if you will join us for Raw Silence retreat in October (some spaces still left), and to also save the dates and dream up if you will join us at the upcoming yoga holidays in January and April of 2018. Read on for detailed updates on the website via the links below.

Today Wednesday (and next Wednesday) I have one of my final open classes at Our Space so you are welcome to drop in today if you wish as todays class is confirmed as scheduled. End of June / Early July we will immerse ourselves in Yoga Varberg and hope to see many of you there.
 
With Love,
Mithila

Newsletter May: Spring Sprung

I've recently been sprouting sprouts and potting herbs so I am in the theme of organic growth :-D.
Practice, Sadhana of Yoga, has a way of showing you that every day is new, a new opportunity to choose that which enlivens you.
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.
