What I Believe and Carry in My Heart

Today, I made a very difficult decision...

I decided to step away from the Anusara yoga community that I have been a part of. It is painful but it feels right at this time.

There are times you need to listen to your soul and your heart...

And so today, on Valentine's Day, I choose to be true to mine...

And why? Because I asked for a sign - and I received it. And, I am being true to what was given to me...

There are many blogs and articles out there about why many teachers are leaving, or have done so. I am not going to go into any allegations. What I will say is, that I have gradually felt pulled to live a more interior life of prayer and meditation, and less asana. I am also spiritually reconnecting with my roots...

That being said, I am grateful to John Friend and his teachings over the years for it changed my life and the lives of my students...

I am most grateful for the community of souls that I am a part of - I would never have met them otherwise. Our hearts are still one...

I am grateful for all the students that have come into my life - past and present - for they have taught me more than I could ever give them.

I am grateful for the connections made across this planet - and for all the trainings where I met one or two souls that touched my own profoundly...

I choose to step away, but hold everyone in my prayers and meditation as a community heals and gives birth to something new...

I choose to do this because - I believe in the Power of Love.

I Believe in the Power of Prayer and Meditation.

I Believe in the Power of Spirit - of God - or whatever you choose to call IT.

I Believe in the Power of Healing.

I Believe that no one should be judged by their worst transgressions.

I Believe in the Power of Transformation.

And most especially, I believe in the Power of Forgiveness.
