Resilience through Practice

I have been pondering the lessons of Michelle Cassandra Johnson and Kerri Kelly regarding Resilience through practice since their Race & Resilience course earlier in the year. Here is a link to her work. It is the inspiration for these thoughts. The consistent practice of yoga provides many things, of course. Primarily though, through Abhyasa […]

Be More Present Here

Sometimes when we are suffering from a dis-ease of the mind or the body, upon initial treatment, the symptoms may get worse before they get better.  This is something that came up while I observed the Out Patient Clinic today.
