I taught my first Jivamukti yoga retreat over the weekend, and I am simply grateful. What an honor it was to be trusted both by students who have taken my classes before and students who have never even heard of Jivamukti. It was very moving to hear many say that there is something about Jivamukti that resonates with them. This is exactly how I feel about the practice the very first time I encountered it.
One of my favorite parts about the practice is the dharma talk. Some days I love thinking about it and writing it and editing it and delivering it, and other days I love having only a few bullet points and letting the words naturally unfold in class. I am very thankful for students who are present, who tune in to what is channeled through me by my teachers' teachings. I am thankful for their acceptance of me despite my imperfections. I am thankful for their openness and kindness.
It has been an amazing experience meeting everyone in the retreat, meeting both the staff and guests of Bahay Kalipay, being in this environment for a few days and living quite simply.
I feel grateful and yes, complete. My heart is filled with love and hope and contentment. Thank you for the opportunity.
