New :: Wise and Unwise Attention Yoga Classes and Guided Meditation

The Guest House 

This being human is a guest house. 
Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness, 
some momentary awareness comes 
as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all! 
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows, 
who violently sweep your house 
empty of its furniture, 
still, treat each guest honorably. 
He may be clearing you out 
for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice, 
meet them at the door laughing, 
and invite them in. 

Be grateful for whoever comes, 
because each has been sent 
as a guide from beyond. – Rumi

Have you noticed the moments you are caught in unwise attention? Have examined where that leads you mentally and emotionally?

What about wise attention? Have there been glimpses of the openness, freshness or aliveness that wise attention can lead to?

Explore with me in my online studio in the Wise and Unwise Attention Restorative and Wise and Unwise Attention Flow Level II yoga classes and the Breath, Body, Quiet Guided Meditation.

I’d be honored if you stopped by.
