The New Year provides an opportunity for us to reconnect to our intentions, helping us to lead a life that is based on the values that are important to us. As yogis, we share the intention of not only reducing harm-doing in the world, but also cultivating kindness towards ourselves and others. This workshop is a a benefit for the victims of the recent Camp Fire in Northern California. Reflecting on the suffering of others can naturally evoke a heartfelt response that can then catalyze greater compassion towards ourselves and all sentient beings. Naomi Shihab Nye writes, "Before you know kindness as the deepest thing inside, you must know sorrow as the other deepest thing."
Our New Year's practice will combine breath-based asana to awaken the physical heart, as well as metta meditation to evolve the spiritual heart. By practicing together, we support each other in this heart-opening process and help entrain each other in the ways of kindness. Please come join your Namaste Community and start your year intentionally. Like Miss Dionne Warwick sang, “what the world needs now is love, sweet love”.
Proceeds from this class will benefit Camp Fire Relief through United Way of Northern California.
