How was your transition into the new year?
As usual I spent it on retreat in nature doing lots of yoga, meditation and writing.
On NYE I attended a Dukkha asana class which was really tough. The idea was that by experiencing suffering we create more compassion for other sentient beings. In this class we had to hold one pose per chakra for 7 minutes. Here is the sequence if you want to try it for yourself:
For me poses 1-3 were really hard to hold that long, once we got to the heart chakra I finally got to give my body some relief.
After the asana class we did a lot of chanting and had a traditional fire ceremony where we wrote down the things we want to release and the things we want to cultivate in the new year.
On new years day I spent the day reflecting, writing and setting my sankalpa for 2021 which is to deepen connections. This means that each time I get on my mat this year I already have my intention set.
Traditionally in Australia January is a time when not much happens. I have no wish to change that as I love entering the new year slowly, calmly and quietly.
With that in mind I have just released a new seasonal Yin and Sound workshop “BACK TO EARTH” to honour the late summer season for practitioners in the Southern Hemisphere.
This workshop will guide you to find deeper purpose and integrity as you yield to the support of Mother Earth.
Allow yourself to let go of unnecessary worry so that you can fully enjoy the abundance to the late summer season.
This 2 hour practice includes the vibrational medicine of crystal bowls to evoke healing, support relaxation and restore Chi flow. Best of all, it’s yours to keep and practice as many times as you like for only AU$19.
I wish you a quiet, peaceful and mindful entry into the new year!
