Thank you, Creator of the Universe, for the gift of life you have given me. Thank you for giving me everything that I have ever truly needed. Thank you for the opportunity to experience this beautiful body and this wonderful mind. Thank you for living inside me with all your love, with your pure and boundless spirit, with your warm and radiant light.
Thank you for using my words, for using my eyes, for using my heart to share your love wherever I go. I love you just the way you are, and because I am your creation, I love myself just the way I am. Help me to keep the love and the peace in my heart and to make that love a new way of life, that I may live in love the rest of my life. Amen.
-From The Four Agreements, by Don Miguel Ruiz
Hari Om Dearest Yoga Students,
As requested, the above prayer is the one we all read together on Winter Solstice. It was truly a blessing to have all of you partake in this special celebration. The outpouring of gifts shared; (material, edible, verbal and rhythmic) were so very special and endearing. Setting intentions, publicly with the candle ceramony is always my favorite part. When we come together as a yoga community to both see and be seen, we realize so clearly, that we all share the same common desire; To let go of old, dibilitating thoughts of fear, judgment and anger so the things that truly matter; peace, love, service and gratitude have space flow through us.
In this season of lights, may you find the beautiful light that dwells within you. Knowing that when you allow your own inner light to shine, you radiate love, acceptance and peace on all those around you. Be the one to Shine!!!

“I’ve come to believe that the highest form of prayer is to pray and yet ask for nothing. To resonate with awareness, acceptance, and gratitude is surely to pray. To breathe and accept gratefully the air that surrounds me into my body…..to be conscious of this, as we breath,
turns the physical practice into a devotional one”
Much Love, Gratitude and Health to you all!!
