As within, so without.

‘We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.’ Albert Einstein

While it’s crucial that we stay aware of the lies we are being fed and the number of people who get hurt everyday for no good reason, the solution requires a different orientation. The solution is in stopping. If continuing the argument or throwing the stone back worked, we would have had world peace millions of years ago. We can’t do the same thing over and over and expect different results. Truth in the deepest sense doesn’t put anyone below us; it doesn’t require anyone else to do anything. Deep truth also doesn’t take convincing because it rings so true that we feel it, it’s a sensory experience rather than an intellectual one. It’s healing even when it hurts. So let yourself off the hook, when the stone gets thrown, don’t pick it up. A protest will work in the short term and the anger in the air is justified. But here’s the thing, the problem is not other people, even if you’re right. To someone else, you are other people.

 The most potent medicine in this climate or any other is to know who you are. And the way to figuring that out is not an intellectual process. It is a stopping of processes. It’s about turning off the racket in our minds long enough for our highest self to emerge. It is a process of undoing rather that of doing. It is a matter of remembering rather than believing. It’s beyond all the man made things- religion, politics and personalities. Beliefs change, but the core of who we are is steady, amazing and the key to the solution. When we take off the layers of armor permanently and stand in the fullness of who we really are, we change the world.

 

Sending you a deep breath and a wonderful holiday season!

Huge Savings on Yoga and Bodywork!

by Megan Leigh on November 19, 2014

Gift email version

Each December 1st, CY offers a 12 month unlimited yoga pass for 1000.00 to 10 people. Included in the membership are all the staff taught yoga classes, 10 percent off workshops and retail, and 10 percent off bodywork with Peter. I’m writing to see who is interested as it influences the winter class schedule and offerings. It’s a win/win- you get the most affordable yoga and massage in the area (less than 7 dollars a class if you average 12 classes a month and 75 minutes of deep tissue for 81.00) and the studio has a budget for the ‘low’ season. We get better prices on oil, do more maintenance and marketing and this year in particular, we will be focused on finding ways to keep more heat inside.

The small print is that if you are using a credit card, the price is 1050.00 and that they have to be purchased by December 7th, 2014.

Email me this week and let me know if you’re interested and I will get back to you if there is a large enough group to offer the 12month Unlimited again.
Stay Warm!

Next up here at CY is a series of classes for those of you with osteoporosis, osteopenia and/or scoliosis.  Yoga works to build bone density more effectively than almost any other activity.   Here’s how it works… Gravity, dynamic tension and mechanical force all contribute to healthy bone density.  And while gravity is powerful, it’s […]
