Tribe of Light,
As days are filled with greater sunshine & warmth, we build to solstice. The day of highest light. Let us begin now to set the platform for the radiance that wants to burst forth from within. Ask yourself... What lights up your heart? Where can you seek more wholeness? How can you shine more fully?
Gather in community over the next two weeks with guest leaders Peri Jill & Melissa Thorndill to enhance YOUR light! Yoga, meditation, intention, service, song, & dance all stoke the fire within & allow your light to radiate more brightly than that even of our glorious sun. As Rupi Kaur says, "I do not want to have you fill the empty parts of me. I want to be full on my own. I want to be so complete I could light a whole city, and then I want to have you. Cause, the two of us combined could set it on fire."
You just gotta show up and do your work! Grab your mat, your friends, and get ready to catch fire!
Love & light,
Let's celebrate & DO GOOD!
