Spinners and Weavers Guild – Saori Workshop

Saturday and Sunday 7-8th April, 9-3pm

Saori is hand weaving that emphasises creativity and free expression. No rules, no fear – just pure absorption and immersion into weaving and working with yarn and threads. This ‘non-technique’ is meditative in nature and aims to build a clearer expression of your human self from the process itself and the resulting handwoven cloth.


Confessions Of A Lazy Person : Another Dip

Every person on this beautiful planet has highs and lows in their life. I know that. The highs are so great. I feel like I’m on top of the world and I want to stay at the peak because that’s where it’s easiest and most refreshing. A recent high for me was when I was sitting in the park with a friend and our children played blissfully together while we discussed various interesting topics. The topics aren’t important. The moment was.

But if every moment was like that, would I still find time to do the things I know I need to do that aren’t easy and refreshing? I know I personally need a little meditative time in every day and I don’t do it. Only when I have a challenging day do I think “Stop what you’re doing and do something for yourself.” I’d like to stop myself every day…how do I do that without having a challenge push me to make changes? Is a 30 day challenge the answer? Is there something else stopping me from doing the things I need to do for myself? Am I just lazy? Nah. I’m 92.378% sure I’m not lazy.

I think everybody’s “needs” are different. Your balance is my chaos. I believe in working very hard and breaking hard. I think the things we are told and taught are to be questioned. Sometimes I get caught up in other people’s needs and beliefs and I set my own to the side. Did I just answer my own question?

Well, after a recent accident and turning an age that I was a little fearful of, I’m once again dipping a little and I’m making some changes in my life. Gotta love those dips! I just hope I keep it up no matter how high or low I feel.

Is it strange that I share these little personal thoughts on a public website? I’m not really sure why I do it but I think it’s something I just need to do. So I do.

That should be my mantra.

“Sooooooo Ieeeeeeee Doooooooooo”

awake - the life of yogananda - yoga documentary

Awake – The Life of Yogananda
Saturday, April 11, at 7pm at The Arts Station, 601-1st Ave
Tickets $10

Hindu mystic Paramahansa Yogananda brought yoga and meditation to the West in 1920 and authored the spiritual classic “Autobiography of a Yogi.”  By personalizing his own quest for enlightenment and sharing his struggles along the path, Yogananda made ancient teachings accessible to a modern
audience.  This documentary examines the world of yoga, modern and ancient, East and West and explores why millions today have turned their attention inward, bucking the temptations of the material world in pursuit of Self-Realization.
