Here we are entering into March in a time that remains always interesting, often horrifying and at times hopeful, especially when people come together and show up for the greater good in community. I have grown accustomed to living with equal measures an overflowing heart with love for the world and a heart that is open and malleable enough to be broken wide open in this world. It is the practices of grounding and connecting, using the imagination and the practice of manifestation to step outside the values of society which focus on consumption and competition to connect to Wisdom Traditions and the rhythms of nature in this approaching season of spring. We can focus on purification, making room for new growth and ways of being sustainable in our lives.
This month join us in practice with many opportunities to find balance through yoga, meditation, dance and Sacred Activism. You might know also that I am traveling to Guinea, West Africa March 2-12 leading Spring Break Study Abroad Trip with students from Saint Francis University. This is the first time SFU has had students traveling to Africa and hopefully the first of many trips where students can see the value in building bridges between culture and spend time in a place that unlike here is not as hyper focused on the individual, but on community where people are organized around relationship. After returning from Guinea and being home for about a week and a half, I will travel to Puerto Rico to work with a Coalition of 35 organizations that provide services to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. I will be offering a day long training over the course of a couple days in different parts of the island to Social Workers, Psychologists, Therapists and Counselors on using breath-work, movement and sound as part of embodied healing for survivors. I am blessed by both of these opportunities and hope to have much to bring back to my community here.
My husband John is subbing for my Saturday Yoga classes on March 3 and March 10. You can reach him if you need to at email@example.com or by text at 814/244-5730. He is an awesome teacher if you haven’t had the chance to practice with him, you will likely appreciate his practice! By request from the Tuesday Class at ArtWorks, Terri Terndrup is substituting on March 6 and March 27. You are all in great hands and I will see you soon!
