Did you hear, as a child growing up, that as you get older the time passes more quickly? It seems to be ringing bells with me. My theme this year is ‘Connection’ and as the year has sped by I am left feeling that I am only just beginning to connect with my theme! Last year my theme was “Extreme Self Care” and the year before was “Slow Living” and it’s entirely possible there was another theme in there somewhere too.

Whether you are in a yoga or meditation class this term, use this time to really be present and honour the time you are making for yourself.  See if you can let go of the labels, roles, tasks, demands that might be part of your life and come into the class with a sense of inner inquiry.
