Tree

The next time a storm comes, set your eyes upon a tree.  The branches toss and turn, flail and bend – and wisely so, for what happens to things that don’t bend? But then, beneath the boughs and limbs, the trunk.  And beneath that pillar of power… Continue Reading “Tree”

Quote from Iyengar

“Yoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured, and endure what cannot be cured.” B.K.S. Iyengar

Quote by Matt Licata

Enter deeply into your neurosis, your anxiety, your panic, your confusion, your suffering, and your fear – get to know it’s textures, qualities and fragrances, and allow it to take you into the secret chamber buried inside your own body.  For within the mandala… Continue Reading “Quote by Matt Licata”

Remember

Working With Coyote

In working with Coyote – the trickster who tricks even himself – there can be no rigid thinking, no frame around the picture.  Perceptions are dissolved, expectations are deconstructed.  One must take oneself less seriously, welcome laughter, crack open the shell of one’s own… Continue Reading “Working With Coyote”

Flicker
