Happy New Year Yoga Flow Yogis!!
I wanted to share and offer to you this beautiful blessing that I received from my trip last year to the Isle of Iona of Scotland. With all the challenges we are facing on our dear mother earth right now, I thought it would be appropriate.
Deep Peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep Peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep Peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep Peace of the Sun to you.
With much Gratitude and Love,,
We come from the stars so enjoy connecting to the universe around us!
January’s skies are the darkest, clearest and longest of the entire year for those in the northern hemisphere. They also contain some of the most prominent, beautiful and memorable stars, constellations and asterisms (shapes) in the night sky, so January is the ideal time to go stargazing...
January 6 — Perihelion: The earth is closest to the Sun
January 10 — Full Moon ("Wolf Moon") and Lunar eclipse

EMBARK: While on my pilgrimage in Sri Lanka my heart was struck by all the street and temple dogs that have no homes. Many of the dogs suffer from mange, hunger, injury and have no shelter during the rainy season. Thank goodness for EMBARK, a Dog Rescue organization that is facing the challenge. Focused not only on rescues or adoptions but also sterilizations, vaccinations, education and campaigning for improved policy with regard to animals islandwide, the Embark team takes the welfare of the street dogs in Sri Lanka forward against the odds. If you are an animal lover like I am I hope you will check out their work and donate.
