How are you feeling? Physically, yes…but emotionally, too…how are you? It’s an odd time, isn’t it? Parts of our lives are slowing down (more of us staying home, limiting interaction with others) and other parts (the numbers and updates, new ways of doing work and school) change daily. It’s a lot to contend with, I know.
This pandemic is to be taken seriously.
Also? We’re going to get through this.
Something I haven’t mentioned here is that I’ve been studying for my Yoga Teacher Certification. And you know what? I’m almost finished! I’m working on a final project and I want to share it with you. During this time when many feel overwhelmed, worried, scared, out of control, insert-your-own-state-of-mind, I hope what I share with you will offer you the chance to do some calming and grounding work.
This is the work that always interests me, but now is an especially good time for this kind of work. The work of getting quiet, of being still. The work of pausing. The work of acting versus re-acting.
You can read more information (and sign up) here. But the gist is this: five days of daily writing prompts and a short yoga practice. My workshops are always aimed to be doable, easy to integrate into the life you’re already living. This workshop will be the same. That’s why the yoga practice will be intentionally short…I want you to feel like you can do it every day for our five days together. The writing exercises follow suit. Sit down with your morning cuppa and reflect, or maybe write at the end of the day with pillows propped behind you and bedcovers pulled over your legs. You decide. However (whenever) you do this is entirely up to you.
The workshop, Settling the Mind, is my gift to you.
I hope you’ll enjoy it.
