Did you know that for our Splish Splash Summer Bash 6/9, we are auctioning off a Patriotic Quilt with all proceeds supporting local veterans? The auction is currently live and will close 8pm on June 9th. Get your bid in to help support our local vets!
Enter the auction: https://middleburgcommunitycenter.betterworld.org/auctions/veterans-hand-made-quilt/items/quilt-valor-patriotic-log-cabin
About the Quilt: The quilt made by Mary Nickelson-Hill is a beautiful tribute to the service and sacrifice of our nation's veterans. The quilt was created using the Quilt of Valor Patriotic Log Cabin template, measuring 60" x 80", which is a popular and patriotic design that incorporates red, white, and blue fabrics in a traditional log cabin pattern. The log cabin design symbolizes home and shelter, and it is fitting that this pattern has been chosen to create a quilt that honors our veterans.
Mary Nickelson-Hill, the maker of the quilt, has a deep personal connection to the military and to the sacrifices made by our service members and their families. As the daughter of a World War II veteran and the mother of a veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom, she has a profound understanding of the challenges and struggles faced by those who have served our country. By creating this quilt, she is expressing her gratitude and appreciation for their service and sacrifice.

“Research suggests that yoga reduces anxiety, elevates mood and reduces stress, perhaps more than aerobic exercise. A 2023 clinical trial also found that yoga reduces symptoms of depression and improves sleep.”

The Earth is Crying in Our Hearts - Tara Brach Meditation, Emotional Healing, and Spiritual Awakening from Tara Brach, PhD - Psychologist, Author, and Meditation Teacher
The All Faiths Yantra is an external image representing the central tenet of Integral Yoga; Truth is One, Paths are Many. Universal, the Yantra is the main meditation symbol on altars of Integral Yoga Institutes worldwide.
Often images are used in meditation or worship to symbolize or express certain aspects of the Divine. The Yantra is such an image. The Yantra represents the entire cosmos. The first expression of God begins as sound vibration. The dot in the center of the Yantra represents the first physical expression of the cosmos. The rays of manifestation (the rings, the petals and the colors) come out of it. The Yantra is surrounded by an open border, depicting Divine Expression as infinite and unlimited.
Because God is not limited to any one tradition or creed, the symbols of major world religions are present. It is a beautiful reminder that we can respect and learn from all the paths and follow any of them to reach the Divine.
Symbols represented in the petals, clockwise from top:
1-Hinduism “In the effulgent lotus of the heart dwells Brahma, the Light of Lights” — Mundaka Upanishad
2-Judaism “The Lord is my Light; whom shall I fear?” — Psalms
3-Shinto, “The Light of Divine Amaterasu, shines forever” — Kurozumi Munetada
4-Taoism “Following the Light, the sage takes care of all” — Lao-tzu
5-Buddhism “The radiance of Buddha shines ceaselessly” — Dhammapada
6-Christianity “I have come into the world as Light” — The Bible
7-Islam “Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth” — The Koran
8-Sikhism “God, being Truth, is the one Light of all”— Adi Granth
9-African Faiths “God is the sun beaming Light everywhere” — Tribal African
10-Native American Faiths “The Light of Wakan-Tanka is upon my people” — Song of Kablaya
11-Other Known Faiths “Truth is one, paths are many” — Song of Kablaya
12-Faiths Still Unknown

A Yogic Approach to Spring Cleaning
Spring is a time of transition, when the dark and barren days of winter give way to light, warmth and new growth. With the intention of making space for a fresh perspective and new ways of blooming, we chose to practice the tradition of spring cleaning for the month of April.
From a spiritual perspective, cleanliness applies to all levels of our being, from the environment that we inhabit and our physical bodies, to the inner recesses of our hearts and minds. Spring is an ideal time to de-clutter our homes and cleanse our bodies in preparation for the renewing energies of the season. Thus, Spring cleaning may mean ridding both our outer environment and bodies of the unwanted accumulations of the past that encumber our lives and hinder our health.
Fasting is an excellent way to eliminate toxins that inhibit vitality and our potential to thrive. There are many ways of doing this to make it physically and emotionally suitable, each supporting the body's natural ability to heal and grow. Even skipping an evening meal gives our systems a chance to cleanse themselves during the night.
Spring cleaning for our hearts and minds takes place on a much deeper level. Selfish thinking and behavior leave a psychic residue in the energy body that constricts the heart and diminishes our ability to experience love. Living with the anxiety of trying to make happiness happen, prove ourselves worthy or win affection makes for a stressful and dis-eased life.
In this deeper context, Spring cleaning means recommitting ourselves to practices that calm and quiet our overactive minds and attune us to a natural sense of internal peace that frees us from grasping for happiness. In this stillness, the lake of the heart stretches out in all directions, revealing our connection to all of life. Thus, a regular practice of meditation enables us to realign our actions, and more importantly, the motives behind them, with spiritual values.
For example, instead of trying to win someone's love or acquire happiness, we can experience great fulfillment from giving and serving others with compassion. We can practice forgiveness toward those that may have harmed us, releasing from our hearts the poisonous feelings of ill-will or bitterness that may otherwise dwell there. We can experience extraordinary moments of wonder by being fully present to the miracles of human life, and profound gratitude for the many blessings we normally take for granted.
All of these efforts contribute to shedding the physical, emotional and mental weight that can unnecessarily burden our being. With this intention, we can cultivate awareness of the habits and thought patterns that no longer serve us, and make a conscious choice to release them, opening the door to new ways of living that bring greater peace to the mind and joy to the heart.
This beautiful space hosts more than yoga!

Listen to a 3-minute meditation: A breathing exercise to lower stress Pausing and counting a few controlled breaths can immediately help you release stress.

Happy ! Let's break down one of the most commonly recited mantras at : Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu!
lokah: location, realm, all universes existing now
samastah: all beings sharing that same location
sukhino: centered in happiness and joy, free from suffering
bhav: the divine mood or state of unified existence
antu: may it be so, it must be so; used as an ending transforms this mantra into a powerful pledge
5-minute breathing exercises can improve your mood and reduce anxiety Cyclic sighing appeared to be particularly effective among different breathing exercises and better than mindfulness meditation, a study says.
