Than when we soar.”

Hi All,
Happy October!
This weekend marks the one-year anniversary of offering monthly workshops, both seasonal meditation and breathing workshops and topical workshops (digestion, knees, low back, hips, feet, shoulders and neck), at A Little Space.
Thank you for the opportunity and inspiration to learn more and practice putting 20 years of deep study together in some sort of understandable and hopefully, more than anything, practical format on a wide range of subjects.
I have really enjoyed it!
In the next year, there may be some repeats of some workshops (November’s Digestion Workshop) and possibly some new additions (December’s Nonviolent Communication/Better Sleep Workshop). If you have any special requests for workshops, please let me know. I would love to know what is interesting you in your practices and in your life. Just email to sign up, and I will send you a Confirmation email.
Letting Go and Rooting Down
Practices for Grief and Anxiety
Seasonal Meditation & Breathwork
for the Autumn Months
Sunday, October 4th (Payment Due: Friday, 10/2/15)
1-3 p.m.
We are fortunate to experience all the seasons in the Midwest: the beauty and hope of spring, the fullness and fun of summer, the fireworks of fall foliage in autumn, and the quiet vastness of winter in its skies, empty trees and building for new beginnings. What does each season mean to you? How does each affect you? For instance, do you suffer from “seasonal allergies” in the spring and fall? Or Seasonal Affective Disorder in winter? Or does the heat really bother you in the summer? This is some of what we talk about in the Seasonal Meditation & Breathing Workshops.
Through all the seasons, knowing a few different methods of self-care and ways of practicing and considering daily habits can be very helpful for maintaining a sense of balance in activity and well-being. Here are some for Autumn:
  • For instance, starting to slow down from all the busyness of summer as we head into fall can be helpful for starting to develop some routines of daily care and attention to support calm feelings and possible healthy immune systems that may support us mentally and physically through what many call the “Cold and Flu Season.”
  • Another simple idea for health and comfort in the fall (and winter) months is to start to wear a scarf, especially on windy days.
  • In your movement practices, try focusing more on rooting down through the lower body, feet and legs, and sensing the strength and stability of your body being rooted in and supported by the earth.
  • Inhale. Exhale. Fully let go of all that is unnecessary.

If the weather allows, please be prepared to walk the Labyrinth for a walking meditation practice.

May we all hold space for ourselves to breathe, to be, to enjoy each season fully, to feel human once more.
