On Friday, April 11th, I had the opportunity to attend the first session of The Zen Zon'es Meditation Series. Led by Sebastian Hitzig, it was very calm, peaceful and informative. I learned meditation can be very beneficial on multiple levels, helping release stress while allowing our bodies to heal and become stronger. I’m often caught up in the perfection of meditation, worrying about ways to breathe, mantras and becoming upset when daily thoughts intrude upon a time that is supposed to be quiet. This series is about appreciating the intention to set aside time our busy lives and holding ourselves accountable by supporting one another in the weekly practice of meditation. It’s as simple as showing up once a week, breathing in and out, letting go, and quietly counting from 1 to 10; if daily thoughts or worries intrude, then one simply starts counting from one to ten again while continuing to inhale and exhale, slowly letting go of the stresses of the day and any expectations. It’s about being in the moment, and not worrying about the past, or the future. Sometimes busy schedules allow us to push the practice of meditation to the side, but this Zen Zone workshop provides us the opportunity to work it into our weekly routine, to support one another, and personally benefit on multiple physical and spiritual levels. If you have always wondered what meditation was about, or if you have needed to encouragement from others to bolster your own practice of meditation, this is a great series to attend. It is a donation-based class, and all are welcome. Join me for the next session tonight at 6 pm. Pre-register here.

If I had to choose a couple of words to describe the ways things have been going for me lately I would pick Hurry Scurry. Last week was a Hurry Scurry kind of week. I had the usual classes to teach, dinners to plan and cook, canine kids’ wet feet to wipe, house to clean, music to plan and practice, Mother to call and so on. On top of the usual I added more responsibilities with a deadline that glued me to my computer screen and keyboard. I don’t mind the extra work because it is an excellent cause, but the problem is I let myself became unbalanced. When Hurry Scurry takes over I notice a lack of patience in my core, tension in my neck and shoulders and myopic vision. I just want to stay on with the job, tweaking every little part of it, until it is as perfect as I can get it. There is very little “go with the flow” feeling in my heart, patience for things that side track me, or openness for others, especially those I love.

This week I am changing the pace. No more Hurry Scurry! I need yoga, meditation and some smiles on my face.

I’m taking time to go to other teachers’ yoga classes for my mind and body. I’m committing to daily meditation with soft, soothing music for my spirit. Oh my, it feels so wonderful to be back in balance. Of course, adding my 6-month-old grandson’s picture in baby plank pose to my computer desktop guarantees to bring a smile to my face every time!
