Since I announced my recent online venture this page developed more or less in the opposite direction than envisioned!
Where I suddenly, unexpectedly, found myself about 2 months ago, was in special events/event production mode. A field I worked in since the late 1980′s as I started out in music and yoga presenting, and forged into a career. The past few months brought me back to a deeper understanding of who I am, and I explored deeper aspects of my personal yoga practice, and a yoga colleague called to ask me to help him produce a large yoga event. (See Yoga Sanga Festival). I agreed, and decided to produce an event myself, in the village where I stay. I suddenly found myself in the real world, in my local community, using the virtual world to promote the events, not being the events. Here is what I wrote on Facebook, a week ago:
Friday morning, an hour or so before my class. I write this, not wondering why I am involved in yoga, or why I personally practice it, but wondering how to convey my love of it, and my way of sharing it. One of these ways is the event I am arranging for next weekend: EXPERIENCE Yoga. The names says it all.
What is it to EXPERIENCE Yoga? What is yoga to you? For some it is to stretch, for others a means to serve, exercise, to give or receive. Some do it Hare Krishna style, others attend slick, heated studios, others perhaps follow a traditional route. Hatha or Kundalini? Fast or slow? For many yoga is a simple experience of well-being that lasts beyond the practice. For me too, yoga is a means to get away from whatever there is to get away from, and find my inner peace in a comfortable body. For me yoga is all about finding the middle ground, in fulness of being, A Way of Being. That is why my studio is called BeingYoga. My idea for EXPERIENCE Yoga is provide an easy-to-access space for individuals to experience different facets of, and communities of, yoga and yogis, where devotees and beginners, young ones, little ones, in-between ones and older ones can mingle and eat well and be consciously entertained. And be part of the entertainment. To let us look a bit deeper than the surfaces we are accustomed to, and to have a bit more fun than is often associated with yoga. Dance, play, chill-out. To EXPERIENCE Yoga, not as one thing, or many things, but as part of all things alive. Alive Cafe Creative Experience Hub is not coffee shop or an arts studio or a live music venue or a yoga studio or a spa or wellness center, it is however a space dedicated to let individuals and communities create and integrate and celebrate their differences and find common ground and expression. Next Saturday it will be a hub for us to EXPERIENCE Yoga.
The EXPERIENCE Yoga Event may be viewed on Facebook/
So – another “welcome to 2013″ – where we follow our paths in strange and mysterious ways, taking us where we need to be to fulfill our roles as light-workers. The powerful vibrations bringing about powerful changes in ourselves, and in our societies, are multiplying.
The New Earth is Rising. It may take a while, and continued leaps of faith and at times, challenging effort and hard work. Please continue to use the Cities of Light Meditation Activation (at bottom of this page) for your personal calibrations, and to help uplift the world. Let’s all focus on becoming more, in the now, in this world, the embodiments of our True Essences: Beings of Light.
