Two beautiful workshops last weekend. I am so grateful that I have the opportunity and ability to do this work, and thanks to Janet Green Garrison of Yoga for Health in Gloucester, MA, and to Chip Hartranft of the Arlington Center for hosting me and gathering their communities.
I find the people I meet through this very sweet and very brave. To do the work of holding what’s uncomfortable up to the light and examining it without judgement, and with compassion is big stuff, and perhaps the very essence of developing conscious awareness. Thanks to all to came & participated, and I hope to continue to share your journey.
I did make a couple promises, and one was to share this writing from Swami Kripalvanandaji, the beloved spiritual leader of early Kripalu. Here it is:
My beloved child,
break your heart no longer.
Each time you judge yourself,
you break your own heart.
You stop feeding on the love
wheich is the wellspring of you vitality.
The time has come. Your time.
And to see the goodness that you are.
You my child, are divine.
You are pure.
You are sublimely free.
You are God in disguise.
And you are always perfectly safe.
Do not fight the dark.
Just turn on the light.
and breathe into the goodness that you are.
I’ve also promised to post my slides from the talk. Soon come.
I love that poem! thanks Annie!
