don't go back to sleep

Busy BeeIt's raining windy torrents in Maine today ~ all the endings and beginnings and in-betweenings blown together in a watery rush. What might happen if we awaken to the movement? Can you draw closer to something divine? Here's what the Sufi poet Rumi suggests:

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
      Don't go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
      Don't go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth across the doorsill
      where the two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
      Don't go back to sleep.

Check out what's happening this coming weekend: there are some good reasons to stay awake to the possibilities of new experiences ~ to remember Rumi's suggestion that we "let the beauty we love be what we do."

saturday, september 7, 10am-12pm
12 steps & 8 limbs
the yoga of recovery

...with Liz Leuthner

savasanaDeepen your understanding of the intertwining roots of yoga and recovery, spiritual practices which naturally inform and support each other and have the power to transform ~ with willingness, humility, honesty and an open heart as shared cornerstones. Yoga allows us to try different postures, develop new outlooks, have new experiences, and let go of fears of falling and failing ~ 12-step-based recovery suggests that these attitudes are absolutely essential. This class is an introduction, and if you’ve never taken a yoga class or heard of 12 steps or 8 limbs, you are especially welcome. Don’t worry about it. Just come. We have mats and props. All are welcome ~ bring a friend! This event is part of HopeGateWay's celebration of National Recovery Month. Location: 509 Forest Avenue, Portland.
