As classes begin to fill up as they tend to do in Fall, please be sure to let me know if you plan to attend in person as well as canceling your spot if plans change. Thanks😊
Greetings dear friends,
Holding the Balance-Ode to the Autumn Equinox
Our lives hold grief and balm in equal measure, light and darkness are two ends of the same stick. How do we hold all this life, all these dualities of sadness and joy, receiving and letting go, failures and successes, dreams and regrets, doing and not doing?
The Tao Te Ching tells us that when we become empty we receive all that we have been grasping for. This emptying and filling is why we are here. To learn to let go with the grace of a tree in fall, to go within to shine the light where it has remained dark. To share our burdens, our joys and give to those that are in need. Together we move into the darkest part of the year with gratitude for the opportunity to live, share, and to be the light for others. I encourage you to join us as we celebrate in sacred Sangha the Autumn Equinox this Wednesday evening!
