Masks

Masks

I loved Halloween when I was younger.  Dressing up as my favorite superhero, fairy tale princess, or whomever I wanted to be for the day was so exciting.  I would also get lots of candy for dressing up.  What an extraordinary day Halloween was.  Wearing a costume and a mask was fun.  It allowed me to become someone I was not – to take on the characteristics of a ...[Read More]

Reflections on the Autumnal Equinox

Reflections on the Autumnal Equinox

I love the change of seasons. Seeing how nature easily flows through seasonal changes makes me feel more comfortable with the changes in my life.   I begin to feel a sense of calm as I realize that change is constant — my thoughts change, my emotions change, my body changes. My favorite seasonal transition is from summer to fall.  I enjoy the slight chill as the temperature dr ...[Read More]

A Solstice Reflection

A Solstice Reflection

Solstice.  The sun stationary – in stillness. The longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere. On this day we honor our light bearer –the star our planet revolves around.  When in stillness and exposed to something for a long period, we can begin to understand it. We can reflect on it. On this longest day of the year, my thoughts turn to what I am most passionate about, what ignites m ...[Read More]

Speaking and Acting from the Heart

Do you notice the energy available when you open your heart?  When you do not hunch over, but open up your heart space up to the sky?  Have you noticed that when you root your feet more deeply in the earth, ground down through them, your heart space opens wider and your energy flows easier?

A New Year’s Yin Yoga practice in the North Georgia Mountains

How many people make New Year’s resolutions that last a couple days or a week? I have been in that group.

W ...[Read More]
