Back this week from a wonderful few days in the old growth forest at Breitenbush Hot Springs with a sweet group of yogis and yoginis practicing together and learning about ayurveda. Everyone was renewed by the quiet time, the sun and rain, the sounds of the birds and the river, and the time together in community. By the end, everyone reported feeling relaxed in their bodies, more in touch with themselves and happier. From several I heard, ” I know I need to take better care of myself at home, but I don’t.”
It is so easy to neglect our deep self-care when we are busy with work and family responsibilities, tired from lots of activity, giving to everyone but ourselves, and so we may find it easier to zone out in front of the television, or grab some comfort food than to engage in activities that truly nourish us. It’s understandable, and yet the ease we were looking for doesn’t go very deep, and we are still left hungry for real connection with ourselves. I have found it is this way with lots of things: the “obvious” choice to bring us comfort is not always what delivers the ease, the energy and the contentment we are seeking.
If you are ready to hit the reset button and learn some new tools to broaden your awareness and shift your relationship with your body/mind, I invite you to my program, Sacred Daily Essentials, a 12- week journey in self-care. This is for people that are feeling off center, are suffering the consequences and are ready to get back on track. Think of it as a time to pause and regroup. This is NOT about radical sweeping changes, which are not sustainable, and never work. This is about baby steps, a little at a time; sustainable change with the love and camaraderie of others wanting the same thing. Baby steps. At the end of 12 weeks you will have shifted momentum and have the tools to continue right at home. And the best part is that the content for this course will all be recorded, which means that even if you have to miss a few sessions, you will be able to listen in your own time. Sound good?
I am enrolling a really top-notch group of folks who are ready to make a big shift in awareness. We will be starting next week. If you would like to join the group or find out more, you can schedule a time to talk with me here. With love as we approach the New Moon, Shannon
