September has always been the mark of a new year for me. I was on an academic calendar for much of my life, the Jewish New Year is marked and September just happens to be the month of my birthday.
So I cast stones into the sea this morning to represent my penance and my intention to try to be better this coming year.
I am offering three new classes in October. I am looking forward to seeing new faces and sharing the journey of inner exploration that these programs support. Some hearts will open, some nerves will be calmed and through it all I will continue to learn the power of living mindfully, nurturing an attitude of acceptance and being kind to myself.
This teaching is part of my practice. As I encourage others to pay attention, to wake up and to be present, I also take the encouragement for myself.
Happy New Year everyone.
Take heart, we are all doing this work.
