The Taproot of the Heart with Christina Sell
What if spiritual practice served, not as means of protecting us from fear, loss, or difficulty, but as a means by which we stay connected to a source of strength, clarity and Love in the midst of our human lives? What if, instead of assuming practice, prayer, and spirituality can spare us from suffering, we worked to develop our capacity to offer tenderness, compassion, and love to the places inside ourselves and our relationships that are hurting? Living into these "what if's" is a life's work with no quick-fixes, easy answers, or trite promises. Join Christina Sell for a 3-part series of short talks, journal assignments, simple breath practices, and asanas to support your personal inquiry and authentic unfolding. All-levels of asana practitioners are welcome.
October 3: Play a Different Game
One of the hidden (and difficult) gifts of the dissolution and disillusionment is the opportunity to assess the unconscious assumptions upon which we have been living and practicing. For many people, yoga practice began as a plan for self-improvement or as a means to create more abundance or success. While we experience those things throughout the practice journey, eventually, circumstances invites us to a game deeper than self-improvement, achievement, and into self-acceptance, self-compassion, and self-awareness in the midst of messy outcomes and unpleasant unfoldings.
