Gardens and Growth

 

Dear Crew and friends,

I am hoping that this letter that cusps into Autumn finds all of you very well and that for those who have been on holidays that you have filled your wells and are ready for a new burst of creativity at work and at home. 

I've been learning to grow my own vegetables this summer. It has been enriching to get the hands in the earth to both plant and harvest the goodies of nature. From the gardening I naturally resorted to lots of cooking and it inspired me to offer a cooking course in Sri Lankan Cuisine in my home in the coming months. More on that below, but first a new opportunity to Breathe Better with me by the sea in Varberg in October. A weekend breather to rejuvenate your inspiration. I hope to see many of you there. 

In June, to my surprise, I saw myself on a front cover. This was the result of a collaboration with photographer Anna Thorbjörnsson, who's creative ideas resulted in a large spread about her work in the Swedish magazine Kamera&Bild. I have featured her here at the end of the newsletter to give you an introduction to her and her beautiful work. Enjoy!



With Love,
Mithila

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.
