Friday October 20th 7-9pm at Yogasmith!
Someone posted a picture of yogasmith studio that has statue of a Buddha on the side walk. He is placed so flat without pedestal or raised above the floor.
I and few people mildly find it is a bit offensive to see that. Buddha is a symbol of respect & peace, one should never place on walkway without any consideration of respect. Everything has its place and its time, sidewalk is not likely a place for statue of Buddha. What if some dog walker is passing by and the dog decided to p*e on the statue. To people who respect and follow the teaching of Buddha would find that very offensive.
On the other hand; If anyone place statue Christ on a cross flat on the sidewalk, others of Christian faith would think twice after seeing. Possibly find a it offensive as well.

This not a message to start any altercation . Just like to let you know that there are people find it offensive to see statue of Buddha flat on he sidewalk. Better yet, at least place him on something high off or away from the floor.

For thousands of years, human beings by the millions have turned to the practice of chanting as a way to soothe, balance, heal, and cultivate harmony within themselves and with each other. For all of the seismic shifts that have transformed human culture from before the creation of written language to the present day, chanting mantras has been a constant and reliable tool and catalyst guiding and supporting this transformation in personal discovery and planetary growth.

As the pace of modern life continues to accelerate, and things like truth can no longer be taken at face value, we need to develop a core of well-being in order to keep up and discern what is really going on around us.

Chanting is like a sonic balm to the current sp*ed of life. It is a way of attuning our individual self to the universal energy of life, very much as a violinist tunes their instrument to be in frequency with the entire orchestra.

From this perspective we can view our life’s difficulties and challenges as a sort of musical dissonance (like being out of pitch- a little or a lot), and by making sound, by chanting, we have the ability to tune ourselves to be more in harmony with what is going on around us and therefore create the opportunity to better deal with life as it happens.

Over the next six weeks we are going to introduce and explore a single mantra per practice. No previous chanting experience is needed. By the end of the series you will have a medicine kit of sonic tools to help help navigate this chaotic and confusing time we occupy in history.

To reserve a spot in SONIC BALM, message me. We begin next week.✌️

Our next series is called, “Bare Naked Yoga.” Nothing wrong with naked. But not that kind of naked.
In this series we are going to strip Yoga down to its very essence. Before meditation, before breathing practices, and even before the asanas, there is the first limb of Yoga known as the Yamas. The Yamas are a series of five moral codes or principles on how we can and should move through the world. These principles serve as a guide, not black and white laws, that can be practiced and perfected through the mindful examination of our thoughts, words, and actions. Because we are not dealing with moral laws, practicing the Yamas can actually be liberating- even when we screw up- as long as we learn from our mistakes and try and align future behaviors more closely with what we know to be best for all involved, not just ourselves.
In the current state of the world this selflessness can be a challenge. But a line from an Indigo Girls song sums it up nicely, “Darkness has a hunger that’s insatiable, and lightness has a call that’s hard to hear.” In our present situation, the Yamas can serve as a beacon, a reminder of how to be human. This Yogic approach to morality is so very needed right now. By following the Yamas we find there is no place for guilt or shame or violence, only space for growth and solidarity.
“Bare Naked Yoga” begins this week. Join us. ✌️💙💪🙏

At our most subtle level we are energy. We are rhythmic pulsations that come together to form this thing called, “human.” When there are imbalances or dissonances in our energetic body, it creates “dis-ease” in our physical body. To keep your energy body healthy, feed it good vibes. #powerdiet

The truth always finds a way of revealing itself. Until then, focus on the things in life you actually have control over, like self-improvement and being kind. All of the rest; the noise, the tribalism, and the hanging of hopes on a savior, are just tempting distractions from our real purpose; to become better human beings.
Right now our heads should be down- not in despair, but in determination. #truthtopower

OM SAHA NAVAVATU
SAHA NAU BHUNAKTU
SAHA VIRYAM KARAVAVAHAI
TEJASVI NAVADHITAMASTU MA
VIDVISHAVAHAI
OM SHANTI SHANTI SHANTI

Traditionally this mantra is chanted at the beginning of study by all those involved, both students and teacher together.
The intention is for all to learn from one another, not just the subject we are studying, but through the act of communal study, we also learn how to live in peace and harmony with each other. #mahamantra

03/18/2019

In Ta**ra, it is believed that a person’s non-dominant eye is the gateway to the soul. So this means the left eye of a right-handed person, and the right eye of a left-handed person.
When practicing intentional eye gazing with a partner, inform each other which eye is non-dominant and each of you should gaze into this eye on your partner. This helps to alleviate the nervous shifting of your gaze back and forth between eyes. It is also a way to, at least metaphorically, grant each other permission to glimpse each other’s soul.
In our society where almost no one looks in each other’s eyes anymore, intentional eye gazing is a difficult, uncomfortable practice at first. So keep the initial sessions short. Maybe just 30 seconds. As your comfort level increases, slowly add more time to each practice.
Why practice eye gazing? It is one of the most intimate things we can do with another person without ever touching. It opens us up to witnessing another’s vulnerability and sharing ours with them. We quickly cut through all the noise and distractions and start to see each other as human beings. And what immediately follows is the welling up of compassion and empathy; the two pillar emotions we need most of all, now and always. #eyetoeye
