Joy!

“Joy is the experience of knowing that you are unconditionally loved."
- Henri Nouwen
                      
Years ago, when I completed my Nia white belt training, I wrote the following question in my journal, "how would I feel if I loved myself without condition - the way I love the children in my life?" I am not a mother. I wish that path was in the cards for me but alas, life did not fulfill that deep desire. But I have been so privileged and blessed to love many children - nieces, nephews, friends children, godchildren, and kids I have taught. It's so easy, for me, to love these little beings without condition or expectation. I love them as they are and marvel at their unfolding and becoming. Last week, my best friend and her son Zashta (my godson) visited from Seattle. Zashta joined us for class and we got to hold him while we danced. I am always joyful when I do Nia but dancing with him, as he kicked up his little legs and made squealing noises, magnified the joy I felt. I needed the somatic reminder of holding him to recapitulate how my body feels when I love it with that same sense of openness, wonder and lack of expectation.

I am currently in Florida visiting my mother-in-law and my aunt and uncle. They are aging and their relationship with their bodies, and movement, is complicated and requires the utmost compassion and tenderness. I come home to California tomorrow in time for class on Friday morning. And I am coming home with not only the reminder to love my body without condition, but to hold myself with compassion and tenderness.
Let's bring that into our focus on Friday - in our month of self-care and self-love, let's do our best to set side expectations of our soma (body) and love it as it is, the way we would a child discovering how to go from being held to crawling.

Connect to the sensation of joy as life force, and to use this sensation as stimulation to flood your whole body and 50 trillion cells with vitality and healthy energy." Sample the music of Joy here.

Lola is a black belt Nia teacher, originally from Brazil, owns an amazing studio in Baltimore, MD and an author of the self-guided journal Today is the Day. I love her. She is one of my most favorite people on the planet.

I will be driving down to San Diego for her Sunday, January 27th workshop. Do let me know if you want to carpool with me! I'd go Saturday the 26th but can't since I will be teaching Nia in Newport Beach <3. Huge thanks to Janice Steinberg and Kriszti VanSlyke of Nia San Diego for bringing Lola to SoCal!
