fall and are blown out
over the water. A crow sits in the blackened limbs and talks
about what's gone Then
your generosity returns: spring, moisture, intelligence, the
scent of hyacinth and rose
and cypress. Joseph is back! And if you don't feel in
yourself the freshness of
Joseph, be Jacob! Weep and then smile. Don't pretend to know
something you haven't experienced.
There's a necessary dying, and then Jesus is breathing again.
Very little grows on jagged
rock. Be ground. Be crumbled, so wildflowers will come up
where you are. You've been
stony for too many years. Try something different. Surrender.
--Rumi, translation by Coleman Barks
In this Forrest yoga workshop, we will investigate the dynamic aspects of ourselves pertinent to growth and change--Breath, Spirit, Intelligence, Movement [asana and pranayama].
How do we cultivate discipline in this essential line of development without bullying agenda?
How do we listen more deeply to the Intelligence that is already present within us?
How do we interpret this [language] cleanly so as to develop our intuition, our relationship with Spirit?
How can rituals help in this process?
This workshop is experiential and so full participation is humbly requested; leave memory aids and notebooks at home.
Some yoga experience is highly recommended.
