Qualities of nature within you

By katie | 18/11/2021

Permission, intention and time.

By katie | 09/11/2021

Having started Yin Somatics and Meditation classes ( all one session) in September I have noticed that saying the words “permission to change, permission to stop” seem to initiate a sense of freedom within the session.

Unburdened innocence, contradictions, Actions, Karma Yoga

  “Whoever stills the body as if seated in meditation, but mentally continues to think about sense objects, is deluded and a hypocrite” Baghavad Gita -The living Gita. Sri Swami Satchidananda. This quote feels like a proper slap from a Zen master to me. A dose of reality. one can “act as if” till you’re…
