May you find a way to feel at home wherever you are.–lissa




There is a teaching that says that behind all hardening and tightening and rigidity of the heart, there’s always fear. But if you touch fear, behind fear there is a soft spot. And if you touch that soft spot, you find the vast blue sky. You find that which is ineffable, ungraspable, and unbiased, that which can support and awaken us at any time. – Pema Chödrön

It is my hope that we can all make contact with that soft spot and not only make contact but to be and stay with this spot. I imagine it to be incredibly tender and wanting of love, acceptance, and connection. I also sense that the way to be with this place is by being fully present with the body and all of the wisdom it has to offer us — connecting with an embodied way of being.
