Spring is a vibrant time of the year. New life is emerging. The crocus’s and tulip bulbs that have been in the dark earth over the winter begin to rise with beautiful colours and new life energy. We also, want to break out, from the dark and cold, into the milder weather and sunshine that comes with longer days. It feels like the right time of year for clearing out and emerging anew. It’s a time that one really feels alive again.
When looking at the symbolism of Easter around the crucifixion of Christ, there is a relationship between crucifixion and resurrection that is oftentimes not contemplated. If you want resurrection you need crucifixion. Over the ages, a large focus at Easter is around the calamity of the crucifixion and in blame. However, in dying, there is a revelation of spirit. There is no transformation unless something dies. No rebirth without death.
I invite you to contemplate what needs clearing out, or letting go of, or even dying, to make space for something new to emerge or birth. What are you holding on to that needs to be released, so the next thing for you might emerge? What useless story are you clinging to for far to long, that prevents you from transformation? There needs to be a wilful act, to let the old habits die and make space for new growth.
I recently taught my new workshop: The Beauty of Balancing your Hormones in Tepoztlan, Morales, Mexico. (The workshop was amazing, the students loved it, and I have been asked to offer it again, in Mexico and USA. I will also offer it in Canada and Germany). I have to say, this was one of the most amazing Samavesha Yoga Festivals I have ever been to. Tepoztlan is a magical place. Anusara yoga is blossoming. The Buena Vibra Resort where the festival was held is a beautiful garden sanctuary nestled between the mountains.
On one of the mountains there is an ancient pyramid, where we spent the day hiking up to and exploring. The Mexican people are beautiful and colorful. And they make the best guacamole. There were students from all over the world. I am so blessed to have had this incredible experience and opportunity to teach.
