Stop stretching ourselves to the edge and learn a better way forward in life. If there’s a knot in the rubber band, and you stretch it, the knot only gets tighter. Yoga is not about stretching, it’s about finding and untying the knots of stress in our bodies. It’s more like untangling yarn than stretching a rubber band.
Peace of My Heart Gathering
Peace of My Heart gatherings are designed to help us connect with our hearts and deepen our insights. By creating a safe space for sharing a “peace of your heart,” we can drop any pretense and be authentic with ourselves and each other. We can build strength in the community by practicing empathy, courage, and meaningful connection. Research reveals that connecting with our hearts expands our understanding of ourselves and others and can serve as a key to creating a more peaceful path forward.
