I have been officially spiritually activated. Many thanks to Jonny Kest and all the tremendous angels and bodhisattvas sent to me this weekend at the Midwest Yoga Conference.
How can I live my life as an offering?
Every moment of every day is an opportunity to bow in honor of breath.
I know all my actions have impact, so I’m owning the value of that impact RIGHT NOW.
Many of you know that my path has led to becoming a more active member of my community. Whether it’s through yoga, or tai chi or going car-free or being a locavore or just telling kids to stop spray painting in a park I have stepped up my role and voice as a being.
Well, I’m even more committed now to taking deeper steps to use my mindfulness practices – yoga, tai chi and Buddhism – to be more spiritually activated in the fabric of my daily being. I cannot afford not to.
As promised, here are some audio and video clips from this weekend’s 11th annual Midwest Yoga Conference outside of Chicago. There was plenty of asana but that was the smallest part of it. We shared our humanity and reaffirmed our need to take our practice off the mat and into action. It’s not a perfect but I’m done practicing, I’m participating, partnering and putting myself in play on the court.
