Let's face it, life is full of ups and downs...
This life as we know it ultimately transforms into a different state than the waking one we are living in now.
Our personal paths sometimes bring us to places where we can feel isolated, lonely or even uncertain of what our purpose or reason is for living.
Human nature is all about connection
I have Hashimoto's thyroid disease, so when my life is out of balance, I feel depleted and find myself wanting to hide out and regain my energy. Even when life provides me time to restore and go inward, I ALWAYS find myself wanting a deeper connections in my relationships.
Where, in this day and age, do we receive that natural and supportive connection?
Speaking for myself, I can’t get that state of feeling from social media. I need interaction and connection to feel whole and balanced. So that begs for me to ask...
Do you make time for weekly practice or share in a retreat experience on a regular basis?
Whether we are aware of it or not, a regular connection to community is up-lifting. Science has proven that where a group of people gather, the group has come together at the right time to benefit the whole.
Showing up to practice in a room full of like-minded individuals with a shared purpose can be a profound and sometimes unspoken support system.
Finding ourselves in the room on our mats and taking that collective conscious breath brings synergy. In that space of synergy comes the knowledge that we are not alone and that knowledge nourishes and heals our spirit.
Kula is a Sanskrit word that can be translated as community, clan or tribe. This word is sometimes used by the yoga community to denote the sense of inclusion and belonging that can be cultivated through yogis coming together to practice yoga. This kula of yogis is considered sacred.
Whether you are practicing for a personal reason, or you want world peace, coming together with like-minded people creates a sacred connection and is uplifting to our souls.
