Happiness

Happiness ~Deborah Warren   You think of it as a summer that’s somewhere else, where the insects are rubies and emeralds in the trees, flitting through hymns you’ll be able to hear–tomorrow, where petals quiver out on the air like flames. And plumed birds flash around it, scarlet peacocks waiting there, tricked out for your arrival: Music and beauty;  that’s what you want from it.   What it is is the opposite of that. It’s here already, here in your local April– what did you picture? A bauble from the sun? A star come down and planted in a garden (up the road) and even at noon the dew hanging like beads of heaven on its leaves?

Spring Preparation #6: Make a Commitment

The kind of commitment that I’m talking about is also sometimes referred to as “put your money where your mouth is.”  You know that you want to make a commitment to developing your yoga practice, your meditation practice or both.  Maybe you’ve been meaning to try yoga for a while.  Perhaps, after the 15th article you’ve read this month about the benefits of meditation you feel almost obligated to give it a try.  Maybe you’ve let your mat get dusty this winter or it might even be frozen in your trunk? Whether you’ve never done yoga or meditated before or you’ve been a yogi at heart for forever, this season of renewal reminds us of the value of commitment.  Registering for an 8-week small group series with Sharon for this spring is an excellent way to ease yourself back on your mat or cushion or find out what all the buzz is about for yourself for the very first time. Here are just some of the benefits to committing to a private small-group class over …
