(Cultivating a Daily Practice)
After taking a sabbatical from teaching yoga and guiding intuitive sessions, I am feeling called to lead a program designed to invoke and inspire a daily practice. It was during my sabbatical that I truly understood what was needed to create and maintain balance in my life and having a consistent daily spiritual practice was that.
We are all made up of different elements (doshas), chakra balancing, astrological signs and points on the enneagram. This means that a daily practice for one person will look different for another. That is the freedom I feel we all need to have when designing a practice for ourselves. We must first realize that we are unique and need to do what is best for our constitution, but the most important factor is consistency.
For anything to become a pattern or routine, you must make it a priority. What usually happens is that we put security and then pleasure as the most important aspect in our lives and leave our spiritual connection for last. What would happen if our spiritual connection (connection to Self) was our priority?
It is a daily practice all on it’s own, to organize our lives with our spiritual connection first and foremost. Every day we need to assess the thoughts that arise in the mind and set our intention. Are the thoughts that arise aligned to what we value the most? If not we can change that with meditation, contemplation, journaling and intention setting/prayer.
Join me Friday, December 8th as I step back into the teacher seat and lead an offering that I am very passionate about. It’s called “InnerCHECK-IN” because that is what I believe we all need to do right now. Before we go – OUT, we must go – IN.
We’ll meet 1x a month for 2 hours on a Friday afternoon, creating sacred space to journal, meditate, move through asana and deepen through focused intention.
Our practices are unique, and coming together will provide new ideas and help strengthen our commitment to our practices of spiritual connection, which support a meaningful and purpose driven life.
