The trees ahead and the bushes beside you Are not lost.
Wherever you are is called Here, And you must treat it as a powerful stranger,
Must ask permission to know it and be known.
The forest breathes. Listen. It answers…. I have made this place around you.
If you leave it you may come back again, saying Here.
No two trees are the same to Raven. No two branches are the same to Wren.
If what a tree or bush does is lost on you, You are surely lost.
The forest knows Where you are.
You must let it find you.

Hari Om Dearest Yoga Students,
Our Saturday morning Yoga Hike was a wonderful experience and I thank all who were able to attend. Connecting to nature through our yoga practice and each other was all together uplifting, calming and joyful. We live in such a beautiful, wonderous world, and it is right here in our own backyard. I think its safe to say we all had abundant feelings of gratitude, appreciation and connectedness as we integrated breath and movement with the sights and sounds of the forest and beach. The natural world has much to teach us, all we have to do is “Stand Still” and it will find us, nurture our spirits and uplift our hearts. Bhoomi Mangalum (Blessings on The Earth).
Thanks also goes out to all of you who attended our ShaktiPath Kirtan at the NSPL Friday night. Chanting has the ability to calm us, uplift our spirits and connect us to each other much the same way that nature nutures. Gratitude for showing up and sharing your voices, love and enthusiasm with us!!
To be able to share what I love with so many wonderful souls is truly a blessing and whatever I am able to give, I receive back ten fold from all of you so I truly cherish each and every one of you for being part of our Sangha!!
