I am grateful to my favorite Yoginis who share Hatha Yoga with me for their commitment to their practice, our friendship and the wisdom that is shared. I feel enriched by our yoga asanas, kriya, pranayama and, savasana is complete, we move to the table to share tea. In these few moments of sipping tea, offered as nectar to keep the yogic vibrations to continue to spread cellularly in the next hours, so often these lovely Yoginis share the “good stuff” that they have collected. Yesterday I learned about a Podcast, “On Being” with Krista Tippett, so I have posted it here for you to enjoy. When I listened to my first episode I heard mentioned a notion to consider “Dinner as Spiritual Technology” and I was delighted to have these words organized in a new way that is exciting to explore with family, friends, Yoginis and more.
You may want to subscribe to have a positive outlet. Another valuable Podcast that I learned a couple years ago is “The Moth.” You may like to follow through YouTube and/or as an App on your mobile device. I hope to keep collecting positive media similar to these to nurture myself and to offer as a respite for others when they are overwhelmed and may enjoy some good stuff. Special thanks to Ada, Nellie and Binita, Namaste OM
