What are the experiences and activities that bring you life and joy?
This morning, as my yoga students were resting in shivasana and the air was thick with Presence and practice, I realized teaching was my current favorite spiritual practice. Through a guided meditation, a few of them hopped into the trough of my own practice and achieved a deeper meditation than they could have on their own. I was joyous at what they tasted, hoping it would be salt to further their own yoga and meditation.
Afterwards, I enjoyed what Friends would call an opportunity and listened to a student, laboring with a spiritual birth of truth and integration. Helping them name their experience, and their longing.
Soul gardening, tending to the inner landscape of the soul, is a joy. My spiritual practices help me to live into that vocation with integrity and truth. The teaching of it has become my current favorite spiritual practice.
