Spring is here, Spring as in a move upward and forward, a sudden emergence, an Arising from a Source and of course the season of revival. Revival was in the house or perhaps just outside this week of the Northern Hemisphere's Equinox as we reawakened our Sunday One-Day Retreats. Girl Power manifested Big Time with a visit from a great group led by one of the Detroit yoga community’s leading lights Ms.Soojin Kim. Soojin’s classes “are created to take students on a journey inside the body and help connect mindful alignment, pranayama, and elevate the humanity within ourselves.”
That’s the journey, the collective movement she helped us make Sunday, co-piloted by dear friend and wellness guide Jaclyn Renee, who provided a supreme, scrumptious vegan lunch. Afterward, we stilled ourselves for a bit, then took part in Ceremony, where many tears were shed, prayers said and burdens lightened. For their courage thanks also to Kaylee, Jaclyn, Naomi, Sarah, Stephanie, and Shanon as well as their individual and collective will to heal the feminine divine. How lovely are they above (?) resembling members of the Aynu tribe, women of the indigenous people of Japan. Princesses. Queens. Goddesses. Warriors.
Speaking of the Feminine Divine and Girl Power and Healing, I have some wonderful new experiences to share after having traveled a bit in the month of February. I left on Valentine’s Day, giving my heart this year to the good people of India and am pleased to report the entire country reciprocated. Alas, there’ll be the telling of a tale or two. I’m also happy to convey that my diabolical little plan – to run retreats for ten or eleven months a year then take a spiritual journey and return with renewed energy and new knowledge - seems to be working. More on the soulful deliberation of Atma Vichara, why the nation of India mistook me for the ghost of Abraham Lincoln, and other cobra tails and tales to come.
