The discipline to listen deeply
“When we discipline our lives to listen and respond to our souls, we are free." - Alan Seale

Huge heart thanks to the wonderful group that came to class this past Sunday to celebrate my Nia teaching anniversary, or my Nia-versary :)!

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be your teacher and to be your student. It's a privilege and honor to enter this 7th year of teaching with all of you.

Nia classes continue uninterrupted for the month of August. YAY!

In ArcanaDance this month we will be exploring the archetypal energies of intuition and inner knowing through the High Priestess card. The quote above captures the essence of this energy, that through devotion to listening deeply and responding lovingly to what arises within us, we have the opportunity to feel free. The liberation that deep listening brings is one of welcoming infinite possibilities to bring you into honest alignment with how you want to feel and live.

In my experience, the most challenging aspect of consciously working with the High Priestess has been the "responding" part. I listen to and hear what comes through with great clarity. I just don't always like it so I ignore or morph what I hear into something more palatable. Raise your hand if you play the same Jedi mind trick with yourself! 

Responding requires surrender and the willingness to not only listen but to feel deeply. Intuition and inner knowing are tools all of us can access to live with greater honesty. We can honor and actively hone these tools with our responsiveness. This is what we will explore together over the next three Sundays at ArcanaDance. So come bring your Jedi mind and let's give it over to the discipline of deep listening and responding. 

August and September are full of ArcanaDance opportunities to listen, respond and surrender.  Below is a snapshot of what's ahead. You can find more details for each offering on my calendar.
