Don’t Be Afraid to be Afraid by Christopher Temple

Here’s a little reminder that courage is another word for doing something scared.
So you’re scared. That’s okay. Maybe you do it anyway. Take a right step. Can you do that? After the right, why not try with the left? All you have to do is get just a tiny bit closer to the place you set out to go even though your knees are trembling so. Your fear is real but it isn’t a fact, even though that silly voice might be telling you that. Of course you could quit but then you’ll never be sure. If you had gone a little further, tried a little harder, think what might have been yours. Don’t be afraid to be afraid because I’m pretty sure that’s the stuff from which heroes are made.
Love,
Chris Temple

KITCHERI FOR BALANCING VATA

Recipe of the Month:

KITCHERI FOR BALANCING VATA

ayurvedic notes

Ayurveda’s signature healing dish is a simple yet dynamic bean and rice mixture called kitchari. Kitchari is a cleasning yet heart warming synergy of mung beans, basmati rice, and digestive spices. It is a complete protein, rich in fiber, cleansing to the digestive tract, and will act to bulk up stool for easier elimination. Those who avoid beans because of digestive difficulties need not avoid kitchari. Mung beans are among the easiest to digest legumes. They are antacid, helping to soothe fiery digestive conditions, and won’t promote gas and bloating.

The Sonic Creative Live Celebrates Art, Community, & a Great Cause

Last Saturday was one memorable evening at Sonic Yoga. The Sonic Creative Live welcomed people into the intimately lit Chandra studio. Yogis, friends, and family sat, drinking wine and watching members of the Sonic Family share their art. The performances were diverse, beautiful, and daring.

David Foster, yogi, healer and stand-up comedian opened with a set that had the audience in stitches. Next was an inspiring dance piece with original poetry created and performed by Pamela Lyn. Chris Temple played guitar and sang three of his beautiful (and at times haunting) original songs and ended with a cover that had the audience singing and dancing in their seats. Darby Canessa performed her dynamic choreography with projection of newspaper headlines about Puerto Rico’s devastation after Hurricane Maria.

FROM FEAR TO LOVE

From Fear to Love

November is a tricky time of year. When Vata winds blow and the weather starts to cool, it’s natural for feelings of fear and anxiety to be stirred. When we are on the fertility journey this time may be especially difficult and we may feel all of our fears and worries more intensely. One of my oldest mentors and teachers Marianne Williamson in her book Return to Love, shares a simple path to rid us of fear. Her advice is to simply combat it with love. She uses an image of being alone in the dark with our worries and insecurities that can often stir up anger and sadness. Her solution is to turn on the light, and allow the radiance of love to pervade and eliminate the darkness.
