Hello and Happy Monday,
What a weekend! What amazing weather we had, it was such a nice treat and a great way to spend the first weekend in 2020!
We are on the last limb of the Eight Limb Path, called Samadhi. Samadhi means union or integration, or complete absorption, bliss, a state of oneness. We have all had these feelings of bliss, for moments. I have yet to meet someone that has had the feeling for a sustained amount of time. If you are out there, let me know.
The other limbs are used in support and lead up to Samadhi. This is liberation. I can tell you this, sometimes, when I meditate I get there. For moments. Where I don't feel my body, it's not fallen asleep or numb, it's just not there. And then, poof, as soon as I realize I'm back to the moment, feeling everything, hot, cold, uncomfortable, itchy. I am always itchy when I sit down to meditate, it's my body trying to distract me from meditating and it reminds me that there are so many distractions. I think, like most things, meditation takes consistent practice in order to find some of that bliss, that complete absorption of oneness.
Meditation is very powerful and there are many ways to meditate. So finding what works for you is the first step and the second is being consistent. So since this is a very special year, the first in our new decade and a leap year, I will be leading an online meditation workshop weekly in February. It will be free, all I ask is that if you make the commitment to yourself to show up and do this. More details on that soon, but please reply if you are interested in joining.
I have lots coming up this year. Please keep scrolling to see all the wonderful offerings happening here in my space.
With So Much Love,
