Mindfulness Yoga and Meditation

Dear Friends,

This past September I was blessed to be able to attend a 7 day Mindful Yoga and Meditation Retreat at Spirit Rock Meditation Center. Seven days of silence, present moment awareness, asana, pranayama and lots of meditation. Here's a short poem that was a result of a few days of opening my heart to my experience.

I fill my mind with
metta
mantra
prayer
to eliminate worry
here I am forced to
open to emotion
sensation
and face what's inside

May all beings be happy at heart,
Barbara
