Joy and pain: a practice

I am at a loss with your losses.
All I have is my presence and willingness to feel the loss with you without getting lost.

They are tired of screens and electronic lighting.

Week 2: Plan your practice, Practice Your Plan – acceptance and binding

At least it keeps our focus on what’s wrong and the need to fix. It can feel like acceptance means we are OK with the state of the world. It doesn’t.

Plan to practice yoga, practice your yoga plan

Developing a personal practice is one of the most difficult, sincere and rewarding things one can do in a life. And while I’m applying this concept to a yoga practice, it holds true for all. A spiritual practice. A martial arts practice. A creative practice. Making it your own, doing it with dedication and devotion,
