Well, I’ve officially worn gloves, scarf, coat, and wool earband to the dog park in the mornings and I’ve also baked my first apple crisp, so I think it’s safe to say that I am fully embracing autumn. :)
I recently had a 1:1 breathwork session with my friend and fellow breathwork practitioner Amy and as soon as I laid on the table and started breathing, it felt like coming home and I was reminded for the eleventy billionth time why I love this work so much. Often though, the things that are best for us are the hardest things to commit to.
One of my favorite things ABOUT breathwork is you can do it on your own wherever you are, but you also don’t have to feel bad or beat yourself up about not doing it on your own. That’s why we have guides, space holders, coaches, classes, communities. To create the space, so all we have to do is create the time and show up to do our work (also this is HUGE and not easy, so kudos to you when you can and be gentle with yourself when you can’t!).
I have this relationship with working out - I have all the body weight workouts and yoga flows I could ever want where I could do them from the comfort of my own home, but the best way for me to commit to moving my body is to schedule in that time to physically GO to the gym. Or hike a trail at a park. Or pay for a yoga class. It’s the act of going to a physical space and being part of a community that is really supportive for me. Maybe you too?
Whatever your practices are for your mind, body, and spirit, my wish for you is that you find the spaces and communities that support you and bring you home to yourself.
Speaking of community, some exciting news: my healing practice is expanding to a new location!
This month, I’m joining the amazing collective at Tall Reeds Healing Arts and I am giddy excited about holding 1:1 sessions and group offerings in this beautiful space. Portia has created the most supportive and special home for healing, change-making, and community. It feels expansive and grounding at the same time and I’m so grateful she is sharing it with me (and you!). There are lots of great offerings, workshops, and conversations happening led by incredible folx, so follow along and see what resonates for you. I’ll still be practicing out of Stockheart Whole Health on Monday evenings, but look for some new group offerings this fall at Tall Reeds.
SO! If you live in the Twin Cities, I have a collection of group offerings happening from now until the end of the year and I can also support you in 1:1 sessions if group work is not your thing right now. And if you don’t live in the Twin Cities? Thanks to the magic of the internet, we can still work together long distance.
In the meantime, I’ll offer this blessing to you from my favorite healing center in Brooklyn, NY - Maha Rose:
