Mahashivaratri blessings


Body as Temple – Shivratri poem
The rich will make temples for Shiva. What shall I a poor man do?
My legs are pillars.The body the shrine
The head a cupola of gold.
O Lord of the meeting rivers
Things standing shall fall
But the moving ever shall stay.

~Basavanna, revolution Vira Saiva poet who made teachings available to all, women, men of all castes and backgrounds

Mahashivaratri Blessings!

Join us tonight as all prayers, mantra, meditation, the smallest of offerings are amplified with the New Moon of Shivratri as over a billion beings around the world offer their own form of sadhana. Some will fast all day and night staying up in the home or temples, some in silence, some in kirtan or mantra japa, some offering elaborate puja, some offering a simple fruit or flower. We will be in a hour process of meditation and mantra and some simple movement meditation for all.

With this new moon it is a beautiful time to clear your inner and outer space, listen to mantra or kirtan, read sacred texts, Shiva Sutras, YogaSpandakarikas, Shiva Puranas, take an energy regeneration retreat, take a break from all media, unplug at sundown and use only candle light or ghee lamps. Enjoy a ritual yoga practice and meditation, a japa walk with mantra, love your family and friends and anyone you encounter as an emanation of the One.

Mahashivaratri is a time outside of time for realization and alignment with auspicious (one of the meanings of Siva) consciousness at the heart of all beings. Have a blessed night, day and new moon renewal.”

For your viewing pleasure

It’s such a beautiful day that I just can’t stay inside and work any longer.

Chances are, you’ve already seen this video of Briohny Smyth… it’s been viewed over 2.5 million times this year. It has definitely inspired me to get outside and awaken my body from its winter slumber.

Strength + Grace + Balance = Yoga does a body good!!

Yoga this week!

Due to the yummy, yummy gift of rainshowers that have been falling here recently, my Monday class has been moved to Thursday at 10am this week.

The weather has improved enough that I’ve moved the class outdoors again, which is so majorly good. The hummingbirds, finches, and a variety of other birdies join us, and the flowers have begun to blossom. I just couldn’t bring myself to keep us inside on rainy Monday, so Thursday it is!

Hope to see you there!

Daily reminder

“Sadhana: Trauma or mistreatment by parents or caretakers can be healed or altered through what is known in Sanskrit as sadhana, which means an effort exercised toward achievement of purpose or practice. While the literal translation of sadhana sounds mechanical, it implies a practice of a healing nature. In the tantric tradition, sadhana refers to the path of liberation. Meditating, Reiki, gardening, playing basketball, singing, and yoga are all examples of sadhana that could lead to deep levels of healing with the correct intention- that is, when a person engages in these activities with the purpose of reconnecting to their inherent power.”

The next 40-day global sadhana

Yesterday, I received the email introducing Spirit Voyage‘s next 40-day Global Sadhana, led by Snatam Kaur and Sopurkh Singh. If you watch the video above, they expound on what this global sadhana will entail.

It will begin on February 6 and continue through March 16, and it will center on releasing fear and becoming a conscious leader.

Once again, I’m in! Sounds like just what the (Divine) doctor ordered.
