Place Holder

I’m heading North tomorrow, Friday, to teach an Introduction to Ecstatic Wisdom Postures for the weekend. You can read more about Ecstatic Postures right here on this blog site. Note the page with that name on the header right above in the black bar?? Click there.

I’m imagining that I will be totally caught up in the excitement of sharing this practice that I love so much and may not be able to access the internet from where I’ll be…The latter part of that statement is probably a lie, since I’ll not be in the boonies but near an urban center. The more honest reason that I’m preparing not to post “live” is that I’m afraid I will forget, that I’ll be tired, that there won’t be enough time, and that I won’t want to be distracted from what’s happening right then and there.

So, because I care about the momentum that’s building, I thought I’d leave you with a poem and image each day from my personal archives. Hope you enjoy.

Oh by the way, I went back to the salmon stream and those four “logs” were gone…Sure makes me wonder what the camera saw that my eyes did not.

Fish Food

Our ancestors knew
reciprocity was necessary for the spirit of the land to thrive,
giving and receiving an endless cycle of exchange.

Modern scientists know that the life cycles
of plants and animals
are
inextricably, exquisitely and intricately
intertwined.

May we all remember
finally
we are the fishes’ food.

      Thanks, Kate. The course went fabulously – transformational for all of us and healing too. Got back late last night and will commence with my “live” posts later today ( Monday the 8th of Nov in this year of 2010 )
