“Intimacy is the result of a choice to let someone see into your heart and live there with you. You can love your neighbor enough to rescue him from a burning building, but that doesn’t mean the two of you will ever have an intimate relationship. To experience genuine intimacy, both people must choose to trust, be vulnerable, and invest in each other all they have.”

-Spiritual Intimacy by Alice Smith

My mom sent me this quote. I had been upset because my neighbor had just lost their home to a fire and I wanted to do more than I could and I felt both heartbroken and guilty about passing the baton to friends of theirs who could be supportive in a way only close relationships can offer. My husband had received them and called the fire department on the night their house caught fire and they fled across the street to our home. It was surreal and tragic and traumatic and also a moment of genuine love of another. Them to each other for being alive. Us to them for being able to shelter them in...

You will find it time and time again, the people who are really into yoga are the people who have (or have had) a lot of problems. Most of us don't walk around in a light filled bliss bubble and then say "hey, I'm going to go do a bunch of uncomfortable things with my body and see what happens". Maybe the first entry point varies. You got intrigued by yoga because a friend introduced you or you were curious, or you found a book, etc. But as many a yogi story goes, both in ancient mythology and modern times, we get super into our practice when the shit hits the fan. Why? Because yoga works! We practice, we feel more present, more clear, more free, and we can go back to those same problems with a bit more spaciousness and clarity. 

Ok.... so fast forward 5 years, 10, maybe 20 and eventually we land in the place where the rubber hits the road, we gotta put our money where our mouth is or our feet are, or roasters are returning for roasting. Or something like that. We have to see if al...
