Here is the reading from yesterday’s later yoga class :
We Call a Halt:
We who have lost our sense and our senses – our touch, our smell, our vision of who we are; we who frantically force and press all things, without rest for body or spirit, hurting our earth and injuring ourselves: we call a halt.from the United Nations Environmental Sabbath Program in Soul to Soul, edited and compiled by John Mundahl
We want to rest. We need to rest and allow the earth to rest. We need to reflect and to rediscover the mystery that lives in us, that is the ground of every unique expression of life, the source of the fascination that calls all things to communion.
We declare a Sabbath, a space of quiet: for simple being and letting be; for recovering the great, forgotten truths; for learning how to live again.
Thanks for this, I have been grappling with thoughts along a similar line and finding them difficult to articulate – this does just that. Phew. It’s not only me.
One day my boy’s doings are going to transpire for me to make one of your yoga sessions! I am not a natural yoga person but I have a feeling your sessions will work well.
Hi Sally, you would be very welcome to join us, Yvonne
Thank you Yvonne
