I’m at Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in the Berkshire Mountains just inside of Massachusetts for New Years Eve Weekend. I come to Kripalu to reconnect with myself and turn off the noise in life. I guess about a month ago I realized I was leaving 2016 lighter than I came into it. Something shifted within my soul for the better. I wanted to do something special just for me, this New Years Eve, to honor the change & welcome the new year.
I was drawn to the workshop I am taking here for a few reasons. It’s a Kundalini Yoga & Art workshop to open creativity and stimulate the Fourth Chakra, The Heart Chakra. First, I fell in love with Kundalini Yoga about a year ago. I love the mantras and movements. I also loved that creating art was part of the workshop. As a poet, it’s always helpful to stimulate the creative force within using different mediums. Perhaps painting with water colors this weekend will break way for a new form of artistic expression in my life. Most importantly I was drawn to this workshop because my Heart Chakra is finally open after many years of being closed by pain. I wanted to take this workshop to nurture myself a bit and take care of my Heart Chakra. I will write more about the Heart Chakra exercises in the next few days. Right now I have to stop writing and draw something that just popped into my head😂😂😂🎨
I took the photo on this post from my room👍 Big score on the room by the way. I’m not sure how I got such a great room with a King Bed & full Lakeview🙌🙌🙌🙏❤ Below is the description of the workshop I’m a taking and the extra circular New Years Eve activities.
