Episode 128. “Even a true, traditional guru — his only intention would be to introduce you to the teacher that exists within yourself.” ~Mason Pain
Throughout this entire pandemic (hello, first anniversary!), I’ve grown more keenly aware of my need for:
It’s a lot to unpack in a year that has served up more than its share of awakenings.
Gong resonance sound therapist and yoga teacher Mason Pain has a strategy for calibrating his thoughts and actions around all those weighty issues. He advocates that we all develop more discernment and build intuition into our everyday lives.
He’s well aware of what a challenge that can be having wrestled with the recent (as well as the long-standing) revelations accusations of disturbing abuse committed by Yogi Bhajan, the now-deceased spiritual head of Kundalini yoga.
Oh, self-care, why can’t you just be about delicious cupcakes and cat/cow pose (delicious as well, but in a different way)?!
I struggled with what to call this episode...
Slow down, go deeper
Meet your inner teacher
Move and breathe
Protect your mind and your heart
...They all apply to both the episode AND the deep healing that any of us could use right now. What do you think?
