The sun is shining and the wind is whipping and whistling around the outside of this big, brick building. In a little over an hour, I will begin my journey home.
I am eager to be home. I am eager to rest and to spend the next couple of weeks really integrating what I have experienced here. This time around, I know that's what it takes: Rest & Reflection.
After the teacher training in October, I naively thought I would go home and keep this level of intense work going. I had no idea that my whole life had changed from the inside and that the outside of it would be in need of much adjusting.
This time: Naps, salt baths, animal cuddling, tons of journal writing, good food, and very gentle body work and dancing.
Advent, this time of awaiting birth, is the perfect season to make this commitment to patiently pausing.
P.S. Did I mention that I am officially now a YogaDance Teacher!? We had a beautiful and moving graduation ceremony and are now free to spread the joy of this practice. Hello, New Path!
