Christy Nones and I have been friends for a decade. She really is SERVING through her work.
Hallelujah - I got to practice in class. Delightful delicious nutritious and wish I could've taken at least 3 more.
My view from the dock before shavasana.
During Christy's Saturday afternoon meditation, the sun did THIS...
...then the vernal equinox super moon did THIS.
Sunday morning, instead of sitting inside, we did our meditation with Garth Stevenson playing outside.
Smartwater: thank you for the mats and the hydration. Both were very appreciated.
Barbara Verrochi, Kristen Leigh, Schuyler Grant and I team-taught the final class of the festival, and this captures the notably restful shavasana, accompanied by Craig and Rara of Shaman's Dream, who managed to blow my mind and my heart and are already feeling like family.
Farewell to our beloved Bayside dock mascot~
Parting thought. I mentioned this quote during one of my classes and it's ringing in my ears lately. I've been able to soothe myself a few times with this one, and I feel it reaching past me at certain moments, into the folks around me. From Deep Play, by Diane Ackerman, here she was quoting Carl Jung on the slopes of Kilimanjaro.
"[Cultivate] a belief in the totality of your power that is not egotistical at all, but far-ranging, reverent, and majestically creative."
