You need not do anything. Remain sitting at your table and listen ... just wait. And you need not even wait, just become quiet and still and solitary. The world will offer itself to you to be UNmasked. It has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet. Rainer Rilke

I often sit in the unspoken world of sound found in nature. I love offering retreats with the invitation to take off your hat, remove the labels, let go of biases and go inward. Asking the deeper question, "who am I"?

There are three powerful tools in the teachings of yoga: asana, pranayama and Svadhyaya. Each of these is linked to going inward to focus the roaming mind. By linking breath with movement and reflecting on its profound effects, we have the ability to witness. As the observer, I can shift my attitude and begin to explore my own behavior. Asking inner questions of myself without judgment or harsh criticism, I can start to direct my focus in new ways of consciousness. I choose to be content in my attitude and experience a quality of peacefulness

My joy is to share these profound teachings of yoga in beautiful settings. I find by unplugging from our daily roles, and making time and space for self-reflection, we are able to expand our awareness. Being in nature and being present to the beauty is the greatest healer for the soul. Nourishing the light within is the greatest gift you can give yourself and others. Please join me this Spring at Gray Bear and share in the wonder of life!

I hope to inspire the leap into your True Self!
