Move your mind, Move your body, Move your soul.
It's Monday. I teach on Mondays. But not this one.
On June 30th, a lot of chapters ended for me. We closed the doors at Magnolia, a studio that had lived in three locations over 6 years. Closing the physical door was hard. It was also the day that a friend moved away and my kids went off to camp.
I feel unsettled right now, not knowing what is next for me. I have a hard time not "doing." These last few days have been full of quiet. I've spent a lot of time alone, I've meditated, walked, moved my body around. I am conscious of my breath and what comes up with the rise and fall of chapters in our lives.
Sadness, relief, joy, worry, confusion.
I came to Magnolia looking for community, respite, and self-acceptance. I received so many lessons and teachers, many of those whose marks are lasting and some only being felt now. I am extremely grateful.
I am learning to trust that my path is guided.
As a culture, we often focus on milestones. Big anniversaries, long term successes, mega-jackpots, superlatives. We don't often pay homage to the moments in between: truly the small pieces that make up our lives.
There were so many small moments encapsulated in the walls at Magnolia. It's going to be different. It already is different.
Today is Monday. I don't teach today. It's a learning day, listening to the messages from the Universe and from my soul. It's a day to honor this chapter, and to open to the next moment.
You gotta feel it to heal it.
