20 Ways to practice Self-Care
Workshop – 7 Jan 2017
This is how I taught my class today. This little guy (not so little anymore) snuggled up onto my mat while I taught around him. It’s not always like this! We’ve been known to butt heads... a lot! It’s like he knows just what to do and say to unleash my inner monster - and me his! We’re here to learn from each other, to grow out of and into each other. He’s shown me my shadow and I’m so grateful to meet that dark side of me. None of us are all love and light all the time, and there is no growth without first conquering the monster within. I definitely have NOT conquered mine but I’m so much more comfortable and accepting of her than I was before. I see her emerging and I know that I have a choice, go down into the darkness or find a way to come back to the peace. The darkness that he has shown me is a gift, a gift of growth and awareness that leads me closer towards myself. And of course, who better than our children... forgiving, compassionate and in love with us to come to us as our teachers? And so in these ever-increasing moments of tenderness I am grateful for his hugs I am Grateful for the hand holding I am grateful that he seeks me out while I teach I am grateful that he pushes my buttons and shows me my shadow I am grateful for the innocence of his youth I am grateful that he has chosen me as his student

“The future depends on what you do today.” Mahatma Gandhi How you do one thing is how you do everything. What you do today... matters When we create the discipline of a daily practice we begin to change the way we live our lives. When we begin to change the way we live our lives we begin to change the world. How many of you see change in those around you, not by you insisting that they start to follow your practice but by them observing your commitment and dedication and seeing how it impacts your life. This is how change happens. We change ourselves and the rest will follow. So on those days when it isn’t easy to practice... Get up Show up Practice
11.11.11 Numerology tells us that today is an auspicious day for inner contemplation and healing. We decided to take some time in this beautiful labyrinth, quietly opening and allowing the healing flow of the Universe to channel through us. What will you do on this auspicious day to facilitate your inner healing? Remember, every tiny bit of healing we do for ourselves is healing for all of humanity.
#simplepleasures Is there anything more delightful than Miss Gracie joining us for class? She sat quietly and observed until #savasana when the temptation for snuggles was simply too much to resist! Cats are of course Zen Masters and we have much to learn from observing their habits! @buddhadoodles
Today is the new moon and also a very healing period of growth and change. This year has been so challenging on so many levels for so many people. Mostly challenges don’t make sense in the moment but if we open ourselves to finding the gift it does appear eventually. This healing period is when it all starts to make sense, open your eyes and ears and embrace the gifts that surround you. Maybe you lost your job, but a better one was on the horizon? See the gifts, now is the time to see, feel and embrace the gifts of this year.
