Sacred Site

Sacred Site

As sacred land is violated in North Dakota, I wonder how often we violate the sacred land that is our bodies.  I feel a call to honor our bodies as well as Mother Earth.  May we remember how sacred the land of our bodies is, how precious and sacred intimacy is and make sure the people we let in respect our sacred land.   

Lineage

Lineage

My lineage goes back to the rishis, the earliest yogis who were "seers."  In silence, they connected to the earth, water, fire, wind and the cosmic order.  Their exploration was how to live in harmony with the cosmos in order to ensure the health of their family, clan, tribe and humanity at large.

From Darkness To Light

From Darkness To Light

This past year was the most challenging one so far for me.  Slowly, over the past few weeks, I have come to the other side of painful times.  I bow down to the darkness I have felt this year.  I bow down to the pain and the thoughts laced with anger, sadness, anxiety and fear – for I may label them as “negative,” but what they are is a gift…if I let them be.

Mama: Where were you before you came into mommy’s tummy?

Mila: I don’t know.

Mama: But, how did you get into mommy’s tummy?

Mila: I found you. I picked you.  Then I came in and I ate and I grew.

Mama: ohhh…(heart melting…)  and, what about daddy?

Mila: I picked him too. that daddy.
