Susan’s Playlists March 2-5, 2015 ~ Generosity: Receive Graciously

generosity receive heart handsAll week, I keep thinking about Glennon Doyle Melton’s Momastery blog in which a man from the Dominican Republic, working to turn his life around said, “We know that when we give, we should give from the heart, but I didn’t know that when we receive, we need to receive from the heart as well.” Maybe it’s not just in our defended American culture that we are trained to see ourselves as not worthy of receiving.

Thanks to all who played with this practice of softening our hearts so we can receive all the generosity that life has to offer. You are inherently worthy. Breathe in and receive.

Below is the music from the week ~ but first some announce-y type things:

My friend Tonya Ridings is teaching Kundalini Yoga at acac! As taught by Yogi Bhajan, PhD, Kundalini Yoga is the yoga of awareness. It consists of a series of physical and breathing exercises, chanting, mantra and meditation. This ancient technology heals and builds from the inside out. This class is appropriate for beginners. Wednesdays 1:30-3 at ACAC Downtown. Join Tonya and become your best self!

Mindful Movement & Metta at Buck Mountain Episcopal Church Parish Hall (4133 Earlysville Road, Earlysville VA ~ GPS takes you to the church, keep going a little bit to the white building just past the church yard), Friday, March 27, 2015, 6-715pm. Experience the No Words routine ~ all instrumental music and is taught in silence ~ interwoven with the words of lovingkindness or metta meditation. Returning to the meditation throughout the routine can help keep the mind focused and the heart open. Absolutely no experience is needed in movement or meditation to participate. The event is free to all with a request for donations to the Buck Mountain Wellness Ministry (suggested $12).

dance. sit. write. April 18, 845am-4pm at Buck Mountain Episcopal Church Parish Hall in Earlysville. Spend a day exploring the interconnection of movement, meditation and creativity. No experience in any of the three practices is needed. We’ll provide what you need including incredible food from Rebecca George’s Dragonfly Kitchen. Find all the details here and email me for a registration form (sjmnia@gmail.com). I’ve been working on this for years.  I would love to share it with you.

As always, please let me know if you have questions or how I can help more.

Dance on. Shine on.
