If I build it will you come?

You know that quote…by Marianne Williamson.

Ya know the one about standing in your Power and not shrinking…

It starts out…

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It goes on…

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us it’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

✨It can be scary to peel back the cathedral walls of the rib cage and expose your heart. To take chances and jump into the river with your whole body not just your foot. To talk openly about the very things that nearly killed you.

To put out offerings and start meetings and practices hoping that it will lift others and that people will show up!

It’s scary to put $20-$30,000 on a credit card hoping that the retreats will serve others and fill people up.

but over the past four years that is exactly what I have done.

I never miss a Wednesday because I made that commitment.

When I relapsed almost eight years ago I knew that I had to have a daily practice that kept me in my body and thereby flushing and clearing on a daily basis the anxiety and tension and leftover triggers of trauma. So even though I was always a practitioner of yoga and I liked it, it became something entirely different. It became a gateway and laboratory into my very dysregulated nervous system.

I got my Yoga certification just so I could take the Yoga 12 Step Recovery training and become a leader and spaceholder. By doing that I would commit myself to YOU. To the commUNITY. I held myself accountable. It was an automatic RELAPSE PREVENTION TOOL!
