Personally, I take the time for my sadhana (Kundalini Yoga), my personal practice. It’s yoga and prayer early in the morning that carries your yoga with you throughout the day. A friend told me that in his tribe it’s the “sprit hour”. A time just before the sun rises, to talk to the ancestors and they are listening. I take the time to be outside and with my animals. It’s like Mother Theresa said, “Do small things with great love.” It’s sharing a smile and holding the door open for someone. It’s taking the time to listen to someone, it’s taking a deep breath instead of flipping someone the bird in the car. Even though it’s so not easy to smile and be kind some days, it’s the most that we can do. We truly can’t stay hidden in our safe cocoon for too long, for we are butterflies and angels ready to fly.
Last year we offered a beautiful experience to practice this yoga together, and to be with our equine friends beyond the physical level, more on the subtle and energetic level. It was a transformative and loving experience that helped to create awareness and vitality. We would like to offer this again on the West side of the Sierra.

“For every beautiful thing, you have to pass through a valley of hardship. There is no liberation without labor. There is no freedom which is free. To create in you the power to create the intelligence which will give you power to be effective in your own living and give you satisfaction in your own joy, you have to work for it, you have to earn it.”
