decade dawning

Posted: 9 November, 2017 By Blog

Dear Crew and friends,

It has been a lengthy month of September and I am now in the middle of teaching the NIA YOGA DANS festival and my usual Sadhana course weekends. Today has been a very long and lovely day of work and I am quite tired but wanted to get this letter in before the month is over :-D.

Each month this year in my letters to you, I have reviewed my past 10 years as a yoga professional, honoring and giving thanks to the past. As I reflected on what I wanted to give thanks to this month I realized that I am not looking backwards anymore. My heart is now focused on the months and years ahead. A new decade dawning. New ideas for future courses, programs, services and more are now fresh in my meditations and I look forward to continue to share these with you. YogaMonks is a major part of that picture but there are also other works at play. My new Facebook page Mithila Kara is under development and I look forward to seeing you there if you are interested in following other creative ventures I am exploring. Welcome to like the page and follow the process.

Thank you to all students and friends who created and joined the big celebration on September 2nd. I had such a great time!
The launched photo book devoted to this past decade and other inspirational photo prints are now available for order via this link.

I am keeping the booking for the Sri Lanka retreat open another month, let me know if you are interested via links below. The retreat to Bali needs to be booked by December 1st.

I also want to give you a heads up for saving the dates of December 1-3rd for workshops with Guru Kriyaji in Gothenburg. Schedule and more coming up next newsletter. 

Wishing you a wonderful auburn autumn and until soon,
with Love

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.
