Are you still overflowing from the abundance of love and beauty we created last week at EmbodyGR? We were so fortunate to have such an incredible guest line-up to bless us with a powerful musical & meditative experience. Not only did we have the goddess of percussion with us, Carolyn Koebel, she brought along Sokhna Heathyre Mabin, Kundalini teacher, and Matú Étienne, guitar musician. AND international bhakti yogini Carrie Grossman was in the house!
You can listen to Carrie HERE
Our community is so fortunate to attract such sweet humans to share their gifts with us. The combination of yoga, mindfulness, music, mantra, and song is powerful. I am still experiencing the uplifted energy and positive effects of the night. Becoming educated in the importance of practicing physical, mental & spiritual work is crucial in helping us heal and making our lives healthier, more clear and vibrant. These ancient practices shared in community have such potency and power! I cannot thank Carrie, Carolyn, Sokhna, & Matu enough for sharing their gifts with us. May we continue to do our work as we walk the path for all beings to be healthy, happy, & free. May we know peace, may we share peace, may our world know peace.
Be sure to show up this week, December 5 at EmbodyGR for the Third Agreement from Don Miguel Ruiz's book, The Four Agreements. We will wrestle the simple, yet profound teaching "Do not make assumptions."
Finally, thanks to all those who donated to Embody for Giving Tuesday. Though our offerings are free for all people, it takes money to run an organization and expand our impact. Every dollar invested (yes, invested not spent) gets regenerated into greater health & service in local community. Donations become a fly-wheel of perpetual good! You give, people receive, people heal, people give back. It's an upward spiral of people living healthier, happier lives while meaningfully giving back in service. WIN. WIN. WIN. If you gave, thank you. If haven't yet and can offer a financial gift, it would be deeply appreciated. Donate here
Here's to making the world a healthier, happier place for ALL people!
