back to the cushion, buddhist advice and more workshops

Saturday, April 11th, 2009

Life flows faster as the Spring sun and warmth begin to touch my skin and heart.

Its been a busy few months and i think it the I’ve finally come back to a place where I am starting to feel grounded again.

Let the rambling begin…

I was burning the candle at both ends for a little too long, but I feel excited by what the future might now hold. I have some great ideas and opportunities that I hope to capitalize on and I’m setting the intention to take care of myself a little more.

I had a booth at the yoga show selling my yoga and meditation supplies and it went really well again this year. My meditation cushions were going like hotcakes! I had wonderful compliments on the quality of the products all weekend long and I hope that some of the new contacts made manifest soon.

Although it was a lot of hard work, i had great help and i loved the opportunity to reconnect with some of the yoga and meditation community that I haven’t seen in a while!

Aside from that, in order to commit to more ME time I have signed up for two meditation retreats coming up in the next month and i’ve recently started to find more time to spend on the cushion. I’ve forgotten how much of a difference regular sitting makes as you roll through the average day!

My latest inspiration was a Buddhist Saying that I came across a little while ago.. it is so simple, yet profound and as such I would like to share it…

Act as if the future of the Universe depends on what you do;
While laughing at yourself for thinking your actions make a difference.

~Buddhist Advice~

Love it!

On a yoga note.. Kaelyn and I have had so much fun with our partner workshops that we’ve lined up some new sessions at some great studios across the city… We even have a mother’s day workshop ready to go!!
