Insights from Yoga Class...

"You deserve the comforts of safety, freedom and community..." It's a small portion of a guided meditation an instructor led during a recent yoga class I attended.

The pursuit of those three things: safety, freedom and community--truly resonated with me.  Here's why...

I want to be safe from:
  • thoughts that don't serve me well;
  • the need to please; and
  • self-judment.

I seek the freedom to:
  • speak my truth;
  • express myself artistically; and
  • take calculated risks.

Cultivating community:
  • enriches the quality of my life through deeper connections with others; 
  • expands my horizons in too many ways to count; and
  • enables me to reach out, share my gifts.
