NEWSFLASH! Special Offers & Thoughts

APRIL FLOWERS AND MAY DAY REVELS.

Easter and Spring time is a joyous experience of bright days and beautiful flowers blooming everywhere.  If you take a walk in Staffhurst Woods near Oxted you will experience a carpet of bluebells!

On the 1st of May my eldest son is to be married and we are looking forward to a wonderful family event.  There can be no better opportunity for reflecting on the unity of life – the union between individuals as they make a commitment to each other.  As individuals we can find union through our practice of yoga: a marriage of body and mind, mind and spirit, breath and body.

There has been a focus on playing the edges recently.  Where are your edges?  How do you respond to the challenge of change?

In one of Bernie Clark’s comments on Yinsights (see links) he states:

There are valid reasons for fearing your edge – danger lurks there. But so does growth. If fear prevents you from playing your edge, that same fear is preventing you from learning, from progressing, from developing your full potential, including full health. How to play your edge, how to fly and avoid falling, and when to go past your edge – this is something a special teacher can show you. It requires trust – trust of your teacher and trust of yourself. 

Playing Your Edge

“Come to the edge,” he said.
“No – it is too high,” I said.
“Come to the edge,” he said.
“No – I might fall,” I said.
“COME to the edge,” he said.
So I came to the edge
And he pushed me
And I flew

I hope you will endeavour to keep up your practice through the summer months – it is often a busy time with other events, chores and social engagements to take up our time, however, if we neglect the unity of our selves through this time, how will we fare during the harder and colder moments in the winter months.  Let us keep mobile and flowing through this coming term.

Love & Light, Penny.

You are Life passing through your body, passing through your mind, passing through your soul. Once you find that out, not with logic, not with the intellect, but because you can feel that Life – you find out that you are the force that makes the flowers open and close, that makes the hummingbird fly from flower to flower. You find out that you are in every tree, and you are in every animal, vegetable, and rock. You are that force that moves the wind and breathes through your body. The whole universe is a living being that is moved by that force, and that is what you are. You are Life.
—Don Miguel Ruiz
