Coming Home

Well we have gathered for the first Peace Circle and met for our yoga flows and felt that smile of coming home in the unity that only yoga gives to us. Thank you for welcoming us back with hugs and e mails and Love. Whatever we send out, as we know, comes back to us in the circle of life. Keep giving what you hope to receive and watch how your life becomes more purposeful and fulfilling.
Some of you have asked for an extract from the club newsletter that you have heard about and which may help in current life issues you are experiencing. Hope this helps and I will be organising a special one day workshop for Cancer Relief (Or any chronic/painful condition) which will give some simple pranayama exercises to help with breathing/energising the body and mind when experiencing the tired all the time feeling; plus relaxation techniques (Yoga Nidra) to help with pain relief. There will be a cost for those who can afford to pay but no charge if you cannot pay at this time. Just ask and we will work something out.

Extract from Spring Club Newsletter:
In India, in the midst of great poverty, disease and seeming hopelessness, we experienced incredible hope and joy. Coming back to what is a paradise of abundance and opportunities, we are aware of sorrow and pain that is universal and not dependent on affluence alone.
The words of Rainer Maria Rilke are a great help in these times of seeming despair when we want answers and all we have is questions.
"Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not look now for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it find yourself experiencing the answer, some day.

'Everything that exists in this ever-changing universe is pervaded by that divine intelligence'
says the Isha Upanishad. The sage sees all beings in this one great consciousness and this one great consciousness in all beings. What sorrow or delusion can there be for one who beholds this perfect unity? The most advanced practises of yoga are designed to help us feel this oneness.

Om shanti shanti shanti OM Peace Peace Peace
