If you were at Disneyland… This is the analogy I have liked lately, though I do not mean to trivialize Life by calling it Disneyland. But, Disneyland is the “happiest place on Earth.” It is fun to go there when you are a kid. It’s fun even when you are older. But, if you are in the middle of the Awesome Movement Of Life, the happiest place on Earth, thinking you are somewhere else, or thinking you are here by mistake, you are not going to be the “happiest person on Earth” in the “happiest place on Earth.”

Let me preface this by saying, the most favorite thing in the world of mine died this morning, and I am sad…
The big deal remember is that you did not make you. You are not here because of anything you have done. I am not here because of anything I have done. I am not conscious because I am “doing” conscious. You and I are not responsible for the fact that we exist. You and I are only here because GOD IS.
God means “Supreme Being.” God is the Supreme I AM. The Supreme I AM is the “I am” that we all are. Therefore, when you allow yourself to temporarily LET GO of any certainty you may have about who you are, and you relax into and stay with your actual now experience — and you have a clearer experience of your reality…
I am really looking forward to this. Five days of Freedom Yoga, 4 hours per day. This will be a training, a practicum, and an exploration. I hope you can be here.

Our time together will focus on how to practice, teach and live in a creative manner, and will be a combination of: Discussion, Meditation, Guided Asana Practice, Freeform Asana Practice, Breath Work, Deep Relaxation And Homework. Practitioners of any style are welcome and will find benefit in this approach.
