Susan’s Playlist Dec 1-4, 2014 ~ Christmas Letter Cover-up (Practical Joy)

“Joy is not about pleasure as opposed to pain or cheerfulness as opposed to sadness. Joy includes everything.”
~ Pema Chodron from Start Where You Are

As we continued to play with the new Practical Joy routine this week, we revamped Principle 1: The Joy of Movement into The Joy of Everything. That is really what this practice is about: being present for all of it. I invite you to be both positive and real: share what is really happening for you. No need to be an over-sharer or a complainy-pants. Just say what is so.

It’s always the case, but particularly when I’m working with a new routine, I’m eager for feedback and what you experience. Do let me know in the comments below or emailing sjmnia@gmail.com or just catch me after class!

A couple of cool upcoming things:
– Let There Be Light outdoor art exhibit on the campus of PVCC on Friday, December 12 from 6-9pm. Bundle up, light yourself up, and come see some amazing art. Check out the details here.
– As many of you know, Jamie Catto is one of my heros, teachers and mentors. Here is a blog post from a while back that speaks to our focus this week. And if you’re interested in his work, you can do a two-hour workshop with him online! I did one last week and recommend it highly. Check out the details here.
– The winter “Black Out” Jam for the Winter Solstice is with Mary Linn, Anne and Susan on Friday, December 19, 545-7pm at acac downtown. Non-members welcome! Members can bring a guest for free! More information is here.

As always, please let me know how I can help more.

Dance on. Shine on.
