“And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy,
directs your course.”
~ Kahlil Gibran
This week, using your prana energy glasses, see the Buddhist “healthy factors” as having an energetic value, love, generosity and mindfulness.
How can they direct your course?

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” -Mary Oliver
We are celebrating life and love.We are reminded of the preciousness of our days. We are blessed to feel a sense of urgency to live fully the moments of our lives.
Ask yourself Mary’s question.
Write down a few answers on a piece of paper. Place the paper in a special place, on a mirror or in your wallet; a place you will see this reminder of your intention for the moments of your wild precious life.
You are the star and director of your movie. The movie playing in front of you now.
It is a great honor to walk this path together, to share our adventures, and to inspire, love and support each other.
“When all your desires are distilled
You will cast just two votes:
To love more,
And be happy.”
Everything is energy- our body, our thoughts, the people and things we surround ourselves with.
Again, ask yourself: What do you love? What brings you happiness?
Surround yourself in love and happiness.
“We should be choosing what we want to keep, not what we want to get rid of.” —Marie Kondō
Be intentional about surrounding yourself with who and what you love! ️
Remember that everything is ENERGY!
This week, evaluate the energy around you in your life...
Your body, emotions, relationships and aspects of relationships....
Over the next few weeks we will be focusing on Prana/energy both on our mats and in our daily lives. Through our Ashtanga practice we are systematically synchronizing breath and movement, while servicing our physical body, spiritual/mental/emotional body, AND our energy body. As we deepen and expand our breath, we are pumping our lymphatic system, which serves us physiologically. And as we create shifts in our energy self, we will begin to notice changes in our spiritual/mental self as well.
This is a wonderful time of year to focus on clearing blockages within as well as without... “from your glove compartment to your colon,” as Diana mentioned this morning.
HOMEWORK: Revisit the book, “Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui” by Karen Kingston, and explore Marie Kondō’s book, “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up,” as we approach Chinese New Year and create space to allow for new energy in this new year
