Creating an inspiring space for yourself to be creative and yoga via zoom on tuesday nights

Image
  I am taking a yoga class thru tula with CarrieYourYogi . We are using the book, "Way of the Artist". Our assignment for this week is to think about our ideal space for creating our Art. We were to consider what season inspires us the most and to either draw or collage a picture would show the elements that would be best. I was stuck. I thought , this is sort of a silly waste of my time cuz I can 't really change my situation. I feel lucky to have a small room in our small home where I can do my art.. However, my art these days is mostly writing emails to friends, writing in my journal "memoirs" and learning songs that inspire me . I am pretty sure that Im' not the only one that has resistance to some assignments that are given to us by our teachers. So, im just writing about the process of where thinking about doing this assignment led me . It feels sort of futile really , as I 'm quite sure that we will not be moving ever again ( I hate moving!)

 Today, the international Breema conferance begins.  There is a Self Breema session everyday at 11 Minnesota time and I plan to participate in as many as I'm able to .  I have had Breema done to me  as bodywork, (it is wonderful!  )  and during covid I tuned into a few Self Breema zooms.. I went to the website at Breema.org to find the schedule of zoom classes being offered and I found this  which I love:  "What I see of myself in acceptence doesn't create a problem for me, because that which accepts is always a degree higher than that which is seen and accepted. That's why I don't need to try to fix what I see. This is the art of coming to live in harmony with myself, and eventually, with my surroundings, and with all life. I see that I'm always reacting to life, not knowing what to do, and often doing things for the wrong reasons. I see all of that, but at the same time, I have a little smile on my face, because I see it as a comedy, rather than a drama. I be

Power of 8 group..

Image
  This is an idea that I have been wanting to set in motion for a long time. The number 8 has been showing up for me alot lately. I googled intention setting and The Power of 8 came up. The Power of Eight: Harnessing the Miraculous Energies of a Small Group to Heal Others, Your Life, and the World.    Book by Lynne McTaggart. I have not read the book but I did watch the video where she talks about how such a group works and it is exactly what I had envisioned. We are coming up to a new moon which is a good time for visualizing. Also, astrological, Jan and Feb are looking like crazy months and we might all need some extra support. For the meantime, this will be an online group. Perhaps at some point we may decide to come together. First group meeting is Thurs Dec 30th from 11am-12pm .  The plan is to get the group help to become really clear on what our intention is .  You will state your intention and if you want help, the group can help you to refine it .  In between , group members w

Fall update

Image
  Things are constantly changing.  Right now, we are wearing masks as we enter the church and as we leave. Our space is very large so we can be spread out far. Therefore, most people are removing masks as we do our practice.  Tues am class has about 7 people and tues pm has 5. I am thinking that perhaps at some point we will have to do the outdoor thing. We have at least a month or 2 where we could do outside exercise. We would begin with a brisk walk, then sun salutes or a variation of that.  I know of a field closeby Dunn bros near 96 and hodgeson. Turtle lake park is an option but sometimes too windy. So, if being outside is appealing to you, let me know. I am guessing that Zoom yoga is probably on the docket again for the winter. We did that last winter and it went quite well. Starting Novembe perhaps? Stay well and safe!
