My arm balance workshop, "Break It Down" is THIS SATURDAY at pure west! 1-3pm! $30 for Pure Members. $35 for non-members. πŸ’–
This fun, challenging workshop will teach you how to do arm-balances with greater mindfulness and ease. From his 10 years of teaching experience, Jimmy has often noticed students over-relying on force and muscular effort when working on these poses rather than learning to understand the essential actions and movements required to find balance in the air. This workshop will help students of all levels understand the body mechanics and leverage of arm-balances so that they too can make these inspiring poses a part of their regular yoga practice. πŸ’–

The universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them.
-Elizabeth Gilbert
I've been thinking about this a lot. We sometimes can't recognize the jewels within ourselves... and so the universe places into our lives people who do. Who can help us mine that beauty that exists within.
Surround yourself with those people. Lift each other up.

Time to cash in your chips
put your ideas and beliefs on the table.
See who has the bigger hand
you or the Mystery that pervades you.

Time to scrape the mind's shit
off your shoes
undo the laces
that hold your prison together
and dangle your toes into emptiness.

Once you've put everything
on the table
once all of your currency is gone
and your pockets are full of air
all you've got left to gamble with
is yourself.

Go ahead, climb up onto the velvet top
of the highest stakes table.
Place yourself as the bet.
Look God in the eyes
and finally
for once in your life
lose.
–Adyashanti

suddenly your heart showed me my way.

β€œEnjoy your meditation practice. Really relish it! Let it take root in your Heart and in your deepest being. Allow it to give you full measure of blessings, gifts, experiences and transformations. This is profound, radical work, literally clearing your soul of burdens, difficulties, limitations and contractions. Whatever has to go, will go. Clearing out that space inside is not an overnight process. It is very patient work, and must be so. Enjoy what happens as a result! Begin to live in this incredible uplifted state, more and more and more in the highest Light, in goodness, inspiration and devotion.” - Paul Muller-Ortega

We've taken the world apart but we have no idea what to do with the pieces.
