Stillness, motion, balance

Over the winter my learning around balance found new ground in our community yoga practice. Even in Vinyasa classes, where transitions are important, most yoga teachers tend to focus on getting students to experience the fullest expression of an asana their body is able to find on any given day. By ...

It’s all you

Yesterday I started writing about what the grounded peace of engagement feels like, and today we’ll unpack more about what it means to ground more fully into yourself. Earlier this fall I shared that I was starting to feel more roominess than usual, and that even though I felt very formless, in th...

Pop-up Akasha: Group landscape

Lots of folks in Mystery & Mastery are currently moving through transition, so last Thursday it felt best to open a pop-up Akasha with the energetic landscape of our lives and see what happened. The Records had us start off imagining ourselves as a grove of trees, standing in a circle. We’...

2015

The very first year I was inspired to work with a paired mantra and intention was 2015. In 2014 my dad died and I worked myself to burnout trying to cope with my grief. I knew my learning edge was to figure out self care as a matter of survival, but I had no idea where to begin. It was [&hellip...

Akashic Learning 21: We are what’s born in the dark

Yesterday I talked about how all healing is self healing, which is why I like to keep a bit of distance between myself and the label of healer. There is another aspect to this truth: Life has shown me, and the Akashic Records have taught me directly and in my work with other...

Akashic Learning 12: Who am I?

In my youth work, everything I did turned on two questions: ‘Who are you?’ and ‘Who are you becoming?’ I’d foolishly assumed I’d settled these questions for myself back in my 20s, when I thought to know myself I merely had to discern my preferences and opinions on...

Coming out of my shell

I’ve been silent in this space for a long while, partly because I’m in the middle of moving from NYC to upstate New York. In this time I’ve been grounding myself. I’ve stopped going to fly class and I’ve returned to gardening. I really needed to get my hands and feet ri...

For when I am weak, then I am strong

YsetteSeptember 8, 2017Life, , 0
Over the last few years a certain vision keeps returning to me of a person sitting in the midst of great destruction—we’re talking 9/11 or a scene out of a post apocalyptic film. But what stands out to me whenever I receive this image is the extreme beauty of ground zero. I see a woman [&hel...

Dreamers & Schemers May 2017 gathering

AGREEMENTS For the May gathering we welcomed a new member to our circle, so I took my time with the agreements. Because we were talking about personal power this month, I underscored the policy of not offering help to anyone unless they ask for it. It may seem counterintuitive, but part of claiming ...
When identity is shaken, what takes its place?20160128204937

When identity is shaken, what takes its place?

The topic of identity keeps popping up in conversations with people in different areas in my life, which signals to me that it’s time to pen my current thoughts on it. Two questions drive this investigation. The first from friends, peers, and colleagues on the brink or in the midst of transiti...
