Essential Oils Ebook from Doterra — Tame Summer Tensions


Happy Summer Solstice! Allow time today … with all this extra daylight … to pause.

Yep, pause.

Pausing is not my M.O. … yet … so my body sent me a message today … got a little amped up & felt the panic arise in my body / breath for no apparent reason.

So here I am, sitting, “needing” to get to work, yet allowing deep breaths as my heartrate & panic recalibrate … & the sweatfest to calm down. 😉

How does stress manifest in your body?

Today may be an opportunity. An opportunity to allow the light of solstice to illuminate areas where I still require care, compassion, a little grace.

May these musings benefit you … I’m also enjoying Jill Wintersteen’s blog today … Summer Solstice: Honoring the Light Within. Her moon workbooks have been a touchstone for reflection for me.

Until we meet again, E

I practice & share Hatha Yoga for a simple reason -- it works. Hatha Yoga in the Himalayan Tradition is a holistic system of philosophy & practices passed down through an unbroken 5,000 year lineage of Himalayan sages. What Hatha Yoga is not: trendy, bendy or one-&-done. What Hatha Yoga is: a systematic approach to uncovering the real, authentic YOU in body, mind & spirit. Hatha Yoga cultivates well-being, stability, clarity & ease in modern life through traditional, time-tested practices. I also recognize both our shared humanity & our differing privileges & barriers -- I am a cis-gendered white female with a graduate degree, who has dealt with family trauma & an eating disorder. My goals in my own practice include to cultivate awareness of my own privileges & social conditioning, unlearn & re-learn in order to be mindful & take compassionate action toward a more beautiful, just & peaceful world for ALL humans, creatures & our Earth. I'm making mistakes daily, & hopeful that I'm falling forward toward these goals & vision. I hope we can walk our paths & support each other along the way.
