Having grown up in Vermont, where the foliage is unreal, the Fall has always been a magical time for me. The falling of the leaves reminds me of the importance of letting go. Even though it can be challenging, sometimes even painful, I am reminded of the spaciousness created when we let things fall away. We are given time to sit in the silence, to be in solitude. From that stripped down place we are often able to see new possibilities and, like a crocus bulb, plant our intentions for new growth. We’re not always able to see how our intentions will come to fruition (what does that crocus bulb do all those cold winter months?), but it’s been proven to me again and again that just holding the vision is enough. But I forget all the time!
I invite you to reach out to me and to other people in your community who help you remember your own greatness and the magic in the world. Smaranam is a word I recently learned from my teacher, Saul David Raye. It means remembrance or remembering. It is to remember the Divine at all times, to awaken divine love, and to remember our own divine nature. When we can do that, life becomes so much sweeter.
Please join me in my upcoming adventures. They promise to help you remember!
I am honored to join my teacher, Saul David Raye, for a Sacred Circle Yoga/Tantra Immersion Retreat near Phoenix, AZ. I will be making music with talented musician Jim Beckwith to support the classes and for a Saturday night kirtan.
