Can you believe January is nearly over already?! It’s raining as I write this, I hear a plunk plunk plunk as it leaks through the ceiling into my office. But it’s delicious moisture that my area needs so badly to avoid a more serious drought this Summer. It’s also the new moon and so I’m happy to share something new with you . . .
WriteGrief has launched following WriteGrief for the holidays. If you enjoy writing or exploring your innermost self and you’re grieving, you’ll find WriteGrief helpful (although, it’s not always easy, it’s not always fun, and I know some of you will call me names with some of these prompts 🙂 It’s okay; I won’t get offended!). Even if you don’t enjoy writing, these prompts can work for you because you don’t have to be a writer to do them. In fact, it works best when you’re NOT fussy about editing and spelling and grammar and all the rules I’ve just abused this sentence. Letting go and digging deep without regard to grammar or any other rules can make a cloudy merky grief filled mind find clarity as you see your words in black and white. It’s been a lifesaver for me, and I hope it will be for you as well.
So without further ado, here are the details for WriteGrief over on my Permission to Grieve site: http://www.permissiontogrieve.com/?page_id=92 I am SO excited about finally offering this to you.
What else am I up to? I am a yoga teacher in training! Can you believe it – and at my age?? Some days I think I’m totally nuts. It is my dream, though, to teach yoga to grieving folks and those struggling with whatever it is they’re struggling with. Grief has such physical symptoms that we don’t realize; we tend to furl up into ourselves hiding our hearts from further pain. Yoga and movement can help us unfurl, unstress, and connect with your hearts again. It’s a gentle opening and that is so very healing. We can learn to breathe with our entire lungs again instead of taking sips of air with the very tops of our lungs. As you can probably tell, I’m passionate about this and I can’t wait to bring it to you.
Last but not least, a beautiful share from David Gilmour as he sings Shakespeare’s Sonnet 18 . . . Enjoy
