I find peace in embracing the breath. I'm at peace knowing that I am a loving, living, breathing, growing expression of infinity, the universe, god what ever you want to call it. The pulsation of inhales, pauses exhales, drinking in the inhales like a fine wine, exhaling with exhilaration, enjoying my actual now experience. Breathing like ocean waves. Finding my fluid body. Relaxing and letting go of anxieties, fears, tuning into feeling mind and releasing thinking mind. Realizing that there is only love. Understanding that everything is as it is suppose to be. We are all made of the same stuff. We all pray to the same source.

I think Rumi says it best, "Christian, Jew, Muslim, Shaman, Zoroastrian, stone, ground, mountain, river, each has a secret way of being with the mystery, unique and not to be judged."

"Here is a letter to everyone. You open it. It says, 'Live!'

salaam, shalom, shanti and infinite blessings on your path...

La Chaim

Yesterday as I was walking to Yom Kippur services God touched me again. Just as I turned the corner to the walkway of the entrance, much to my surprise there was a woman going up into Urdhva Dhanurasana. She smiled and started to struggle a bit. I said, "I am a yoga teacher, do you want an adjustment." She came down and said yes and told me her back was bothering her. I asked her to point where it was bothering her and she touched the middle of her back behind her heart. Prana yoga and a good twist will surely help this I thought. So that's just what we did. I led her into some prana yoga and guided her into Marichyasana III. then I gave her an adjustment and boom shakti the knot in her back was gone and her energy was traveling freely. She did the other side and then I guided her through some Surya Namaskars and an adjustment in Down Dog. I walked in to services feeling so blessed to be alive!

Teaching is good for the teacher


Thanks to all my teachers, especially Shiva Rea for inspiring me to live yoga 24/7 and teach Prana Flow. In my class at Downtown Yoga Circle tonight I guided the students through Mandala Namaskar 1. It was their first time. I used my ipod shuffle so the music was a bit of a surprise. But we just flowed and it was sweet to see the breath take over and freedom set in. At the end, instead of savasana they did supported suptabadakonasana for the first time too. mmmmm Bliss...

Cusp Of Beauty

The inspiration for this graphic originated when B asked me to do a graphic for this weekends Hit & Run event at Bear Mountain called Hot Dogs And Handrails. Today is my birthday, and using the cusp became the theme almost instantaneously. The summer is coming to a close, the days and nights are almost equal as the fall equinox approaches.

Embracing the fire.

In my yoga practice I have been lighting the fire as well. Practicing Agni Namaskar and other solar sadhanas in class with Shiva as well as in my personal practice and teaching. 108 Sun Salutes here we go! The Global Mala is this weekend. Tonight is On Fire - A Illumined Night of Rumi, Passion and Sacred Activism with Andrew Harvey and tomorrow is Ignited - A Blazing Day of Rumi, Passion and Sacred Activism.

I am present and fully embracing the heat, the fire in transition... transformation.

Thinking of 1979 also helped. Little though bubbles at the beginning of my meditation about waiting for KISS to come out from the dressing room backstage at the Silverdome kept floating in. Eventually KISS came out in full makeup, onto the red carpet, and only to walk up a ramp and get into the KISS VAN. Then drive it onto the stage amid a pyrotechnic spectacle of color and sound in feast of prana. Later that led me to think of bandit, Burt Renyolds and BOOM Shakti, I was automatically drawn to Smokey, then The Trans Am!

Birthday Wishes:
Global Mala is huge success.
The Kids at Bear Mt. kill it!
