Meet me for our special Candlelight Yoga and Meditation practice from 6pm-8pm. This is a sweet practice dedicated to deep contemplation, self-love and meditation. It is a perfect "date" night for yourself alone but also appropriate for your partner and family members to enjoy.I mentioned to my hubby yesterday, that I was considering going to Yoga this early evening and he looked at me with wide eyes and said: "But... but it is NEW YEAR'S EVE!!!" I guess what he really tried to tell me was "Baby, it is time to let it roll, it is time to drink and be drunk and PARTYYY!!! What the heck do you wanna do Yoga for if you can have a wild time?!" (I have to add: [wild time] with the mother-in-law *yawn*). So I told him "Baby, it is New Year's Eve! Time to reflect on the old year, time to think about the new one! And I'll be back at 8:30 to party!
Goals on StickK.com range from the practical "stop biting nails" to the ambitious "successful startup" to the competitive "lose weight faster than Nate" to the creative "speaking more slowly to foreigners in NYC."
Bleiben Sie optimistisch
Weltwirtschaft und Naturgewalten haben Sie nicht in Ihrer Hand. Aber wie Sie sich dazu verhalten, liegt einzig und allein an Ihnen. Ihr Jahr 2008 wird so, wie Sie es empfinden. In Ihnen steckt womöglich viel Unsicherheit, aber Sie besitzen auch unerschütterliche Kräfte und Reserven. Andere mögen vergessen, wie Sie heißen oder was Sie ihnen erzählt haben. Aber sie vergessen nie, zu welchen Empfindungen Sie ihre Herzen gerührt haben. Nehmen Sie sich deswegen für dieses Jahr vor: Ich werde das beste Jahr meines Lebens haben – und anderen verhelfe ich auch noch dazu!
If you want to know the past, to know what has caused you, look at yourself in the present, for that is the past's effect. If you want to know your future, then look at yourself in the present, for that is the cause of the future.
-Majjhima NikayaDear Monday Night Basics Students,
Tonight is the last Monday of the year! I know it's hard to believe!
It seems then only appropriate that we dedicate tonight's 7:30pm Basics practice to reflecting on this past year, taking its lessons and aligning our hearts with our best intentions for the new year. The class will be deeply introspective and sweet. If you were looking for some quiet solitude in order to recharge from the busyness of the past month or just an opportunity to really think about what you've accomplished this past year and what you want to set as meaningful goals for 2009 then this is the class for you!
I hope you can make time to join me tonight.
Sending you healing thoughts, hopes for all your dreams to take form and the courage to make your wishes come true!
