End of Days. Really?
Not so much in reference to the Mayan Calendar, but our tenure at the HappyBeing Studio in Heathmont has come to an end.
It is a day of mixed emotions for me. Over the last five years I've come to love this studio and its outlook over the nearby Dandenong Ranges. Morning practices brought a beautiful sense of peace, and evening summer practices often saw beautiful sunsets. On days when a more restorative practice was sought, we cocooned ourselves in and then went out into the world with a little more love in our hearts.
I feel blessed to have been able to teach in this space, but our journey has not ended, just changed. By embracing the change in our lives, sitting with it and feeling the good and the bad, we come to find acceptance.
In 2013, our new space is at the Central Ringwood Community Centre and after looking for months at various spaces available, I'm sure that our new home will be as welcoming as Heathmont was to us. For those of you that continue their journey with us, I want you to take the time to appreciate our new space. The trees, the birds, the murals outside the Community Centre. It is a different feel to the old studio, however the goal is the same: To go out into the world a little lighter, with more love in our hearts to go and serve ourselves and the community.
It feels like I took the Christmas tree down in our house only five minutes ago, and here we are again in December!
As we all start to speed up in the lead up to the holidays many of us feel overwhelmed by our to-do lists: organising presents, shopping, wrapping, tying up loose ends at work and attending end of year functions. Where did that spare 30 minutes go that I scheduled into the diary? You're not alone.
Before you start to stress out and move onto the next item on the to-do list. I have one event that I guarantee will provide you with the time out that you are seeking. Something just for you.
Join us Friday 7 December at 7pm-9pm at the HappyBeing studio for our last Nurture and Relax Workshop for 2012.
I look forward to seeing you there.
