The Redwoods continue to be an inspiration and grounding force for my teaching and yoga practice. Recently I hiked the Lost Coast in Mendocino County. The 25 mile hike is relaxing and fun. You get to see old growth redwood and fir groves as well as epic secluded black sand beaches. My meditations in nature are always deep and expansive.
This time the message from the ocean and the mountains was clear.
Take each step mindfully. Breathe in and witness one’s surroundings with awareness and gratitude. Be grateful for the support that the earth provides and the inspiration a shooting star filled sky brings. Let the destruction of darkness show the pathway to light. Om Nama Shivaya.
