Marriage and My Mat


I was blessed this weekend to celebrate two beautiful individuals passionately say "I Do". Over the years I have found each wedding I attend, become more and more important :: It is a time for me to pause and reflect on my experience, the love I have for him and the deep respect of what marriage entails.

By no means an expert, although 17 years strong, there was an energetic shift when I started to teach the practice. Immersing myself in readings and the love affair I have with sharing on the mat, naturally my marriage became more attentive, more loving, more soft.

Humbled to share this weekend my advice. The spiritual leader Thich Nhat Hanh said, "You must love in such a way that the person you love feels free". An awakening. So clean. So simple. If we can be at peace and accept each others' individual journey, marriage is that much more effortless. Not always easy, but through the exhale we can create space to be each others' light :: I love you husband.
