Such a great season we are enjoying.
Sometimes talking about the weather seems trivial, but nature is a powerful influence on our body-mind and spirit and  many cultiltures base their medicine on cultivating inner and outer harmony with the rhythms of nature and balance of the elements. Nature is our teacher.
 Practices of honoring the elements have  become a root of our centering
 at Studio de la Luz.

Join us  on August 8th at 6pm for a Ceremony of the Four Directions.
We were honored to learn this simple and nourishing practice from Don Patricio last month & encouraged to continue as a community.
We will abide the same guidelines - listed on the side bar.
In times when turmoil and "madness" seem to be dominating behaviors and relations, this practice which brings us to our hearts and humility in peaceful relationship is a treasure and potent medicine for body, mind and spirit - and for building strong community & kinship.

APRIL 2014 Blossoms into Leaves

All the same tree!     First "nothing" - bare branches, then a small speck of green emerges and it is full
tilt life force made visible from now till the leaves just coming on fall away and become earth and it is the quiet cycle above ground. Hope you have had time to smell a few beautiful blossoms- apple, apricot and plum and peach- YOU ARE THE SAME! May your garden grow well, your nurturing be received and your harvest plentiful.

As it warms up, there is so much movement- in the body the liver wakes up- interesting that the Healing Tao sound for waking up is Shhhhhh.   Move muscles and sinews and your blood, eat more greens and stretch!
And behold the wonders of life so evident, and so changing before our eyes. Know you are important in the whole and connected.

MARCH 2014 movement under our feet- awakening

Balance & Change   
 Celebrate breath, rhythms, flexibility and community through all the seasons.  
Spring is coming, emerging from winter- more palpable aliveness....... blossoms & "weeds",
the life force is obvious!

Blessed to spend a day at the Morikami Museum in Florida recently. A tribute to the Japanese culture that established an agricultural center in the 1920's-30's, the land was eventually donated and is now a site to visit and enjoy. A reminder of the subtle beauty that surrounds us, the power in stillness, and our capacity to honor this aspect of our environment and self. It does help us treat each other and our world better.

This month,welcome  "Spiritual Alchemy" a weekend workshop with Natalie Reid, and Kundalini Yoga for Women with Nancy Tafoya.
In addition to our ongoing classes of yoga, meditation in motion and community hands on wellness clinic.

2014 Greetings in a New Year may Peace Prevail!

Greetings everyone,
May this year bring all you need to make the choices that are best for health and wellbeing.
Mostly,  may you have love and support around you and the power to reach out as needed, and
gentleness with yourself and others. Of course, the breath is the best way to find this gentleness and
steadiness that lies under the roller coaster ride. Taking that PAUSE- in momentum, is a practice- and kind of like making your bed everyday, it needs to be tended daily- like calling a good friend.

May you all have this good friend to lean into. and may the discoveries along the way bring joy and wonder.

with Love,
wendy and all at Studio de la luz
