End of year rituals

31 December, 2019 | Posted in Meditation

Love Letter to Meditation

17 August, 2016 | Posted in Lessons from the Mat, Meditation, Workshops + Retreats

In a few weeks, I leave to sit in silence for a 3-month meditation retreat. I'm not gonna lie, I'm a little anxious at the thought of being away from everything I know that brings me comfort.
