Winter is hard! That’s a song and it’s also true, especially with this year’s oppressive cold. It, along with my own mental chatter got to me this weekend. I couldn’t seem to find that quiet place within that knows how not to let it catch you in its web. Or, those quiet peaceful moments were constantly interrupted by a mind that was in battle. Why? Well, there are real reasons and then there is that old, tired condition, holding on to itself rather than letting go. Instead of letting its rotten self expire to make room for the new it hangs on to what it knows, no matter how unpleasant and dysfunctional it is. That is the way of habits we hold onto, or rather that hold onto us; it’s hard to know which comes first.
This morning I feel a shift of energy with a cold coming on. Who said the mind doesn’t make the body sick? But I feel this cold to be good, like it’s saying basta, enough is enough. It’s the body’s way of purifying itself, expelling the mind’s negativity.
Now to get on to brighter things, I want to bring your attention to my site, and its new page, which is our workshop in NY at my loft. Please check it out, and check back soon for information on our workshop in the South of Italy, in the region of Puglia. We have found a fabulous place in the country, near Ostuni, and we will soon have photos and the details up online.
