|Boo! What Are You Afraid of?
|In my Hallowe'en class my opening question was "What's the scariest thing you can think of?" and my own answer was "Not showing up for myself and others."
To be precise what frightens me most is failing. Falling, flat, splat. Whap. And I have done it, many times. So now maybe I can go for it anyway, since after all I have fallen and I am still here.
Still jubilant! Still lovable, loving, and rejoyous. Is that a word? Yes, it's my word: it means still joyous! And Rejubilant is ... Repeatedly jubilant!
Why NOT go for it? The falling possibility, oh yes! The rush, oh yes! And then we are still here. Thrilled! Chilled!
Happy Hallowe'en. What are YOU afraid of? ... Go for it!

Thai Yoga is a delicious healing bodywork that emphasizes partner connection and sensitivity.
ZenZouk protege Vinny de Souza and I join to offer the first ever "dance shop" to join these practices. All levels will enjoy. No partner required.

|Acro means "high" in Greek; Yoga in Sanskrit means "union".
As I watch the world fall in love with high level acrobatics, I like to remind us of High Union.
