The power of connection.
I haven't really felt moved to share much recently. I think periods of quiet and reflection are as important on social media as they are in day to day life.
Last night I finally made it to Kirtan @triyogauk
. It's been a while and I had been feeling a pull for such a long time. I almost didn't go, after attending a particularly confusing workshop which for many reasons added to a feeling of isolation, wondering if I really wanted to teach anymore. .
But I went. - because I knew. Within seconds I was in tears. Nikki started by asking people why they came. The man in this photo answered saying that even though his football team were playing in the cup final there was nowhere else he wanted to be more, the heart had called and he had learnt to answer- realising over time that although we all really knew deep down what the heart needed we were usually inclined to listen elsewhere...and he had stopped doing that. .
His words were so pure and heartfelt, he seemed like such a simple, normal man - I was incredibly moved by his presence and honesty. After all the recent events and the confusion of life, our inter connectedness and my current personal confusion - it was the reminder I needed that there are such beautiful beings around and all is not lost, we really need to look in the right places.
What followed was the most stunning evening. I can't recommend Nikki enough. The mantras and the circle was so healing and inclusive. I found myself wondering again and again - what if everyone had the opportunity to do this? My tears were for the people who don't and who will never feel that sense of connection. How would the world be if we all felt this? The tears flowed but I felt a profound joy for this work and this world. Thank you for easing that sense of isolation Nikki and for all the work you do which is so valuable.
