If you aren't sure yet, why not book some time at 7:30pm EST tonight and join me for Yin+Restore 💜  Practicing in your pj's is encouraged and here's the blog:

When Discipline Becomes Attachment

A funny, like haha, like ironic is it funny, thing happened while being “devoted to my practice” this week. I forgot to start my app for my morning meditation. If you follow me on social, every couple months this year I have shared my progress as I saw those consecutive meditation days multiplying. First 40, then 100, then 250 and the whole while I’m gaining all these progress stars and feeling really good about myself. Nevermind that some (maybe more than some) of the days I sat, I really just turned over my to do list in my head the whole time or started thinking about a random conversation from my past. But I was going to do it. I was going to get to 365 – a full year of meditation, every day. It started the day I arrived home from India last year, and here I was at 354. A total piece of cake at this point. I visualized that magic number and what other incredible accolades would come once I posted this incredible feat on Instagram. And then this week, I chose to deepen my self-practice as I would, had I been in India again this year. Rather than simply using a timer or listening to some music off my meditation app I was following a guided meditation for pranayama and meditation – really powerful if I may add. The first morning I turned my meditation app on in the background to make sure it recorded my day. The second morning I tuned in again, because after 354 days of morning meditation, whether focused or not at this point starting my day without it isn’t even a question anymore. The third morning, I light my candle as I always do, open up the link on my phone and realize in shock and a bit of awe that despite the incredibly powerful meditation I had the day before, my timer wasn’t on and my app reset itself. From 354 to 0. I looked at it for a moment dumbfounded, was I seeing this right? READ MORE
