12 Steps & 8 Limbs

Saturday, September 7, 10am-12pm
with Liz Leuthner
at HopeGateWay (509 Forest Avenue, Portland, Maine)

savasana Deepen your understanding of the intertwining roots of yoga and recovery, spiritual practices which naturally inform and support each other and have the power to transform ~ with willingness, humility, honesty and an open heart as shared cornerstones. Yoga allows us to try different postures, develop new outlooks, have new experiences, and let go of fears of falling and failing ~ 12-step-based recovery suggests that these attitudes are absolutely essential. This class is an introduction, and if you’ve never taken a yoga class or heard of 12 steps or 8 limbs, you are especially welcome. Don’t worry about it. Just come. We have mats and props. All are welcome ~ bring a friend!

This event is part of HopeGateWay’s celebration of National Recovery Month.

Don’t Go Back to Sleep

Nama News 09.03.13The latest Nama News includes this exerpt from “A Great Wagon,” in which Rumi reminds us:

“The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don’t go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth across the doorsill
where the two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
Don’t go back to sleep.”
