We Always Have Opportunities to Practice

“We don’t sit in meditation to become good meditators. We sit in meditation so that we’ll be more awake in our lives.” – Pema Chodron

No matter what, we always have opportunities to practice. Whether the sky is blue and the sun is shining, or the rainclouds are gathering, whether you’re home in Brooklyn over the holidays or on a jet plane over the middle of the country somewhere – you can practice. Life presents us with these wonderful, crazy, sometimes-not-so wanted opportunities to wake up and practice. Wherever you may be this holiday season, give yourself the glorious opportunity to practice – be it staying committed to your class schedule, taking five minutes during the day to sit with your breath, or being true to yourself and respectful of others during a holiday dinner debate – especially when you don’t want to. It might just be the thing that your holidays need this year.

Oh, and one other thing your holidays do need: Angela’s Rest & Restore class on Thursday, December 12th. Bolsters and blankets and breathing and Angela – sounds like just what all of our nervous systems need right now!

We love you and thanks for another amazing year! May your holidays be happy, bright, joyful, and filled with lots of practice.

Steph, Angela, and Christina
