Australia is burning and it can't be ignored.
We are being forced to face the impermanence of our lives here on earth as we watch the destruction of almost an entire country. It is estimated that 480 million mammals, birds and reptiles have been lost since September, and we may have lost entire species. 17 people and countless homes and communities have been lost. Our world is changing, and FAST.
It brings up a lot a lot to see the images of flames, animals running for their lives and peoples homes burning. It may feel like you are somehow separate, but that could be you or someone you love one day. I really hope that knowing what is happening in the world touches your heart, worries you, and makes you feel something -- sadness, anger, hopelessness -- anything!
It is only when we all let ourselves feel this devastating and ongoing tragedy that we will wake up and inspire others to awaken too. This effects all of us and it is time to begin thinking like a global community.
Some of you gathered with me in support of The Amazon Rainforest. I am intending that we gather again, in our fear, our anger and our sorrow.
There is power in coming together in a small focused group to send intentions of healing, resolution or growth to individuals, or events. (I like to think so anyway)
We will create a circle, taking time to release our worry, uncertainty and grief around a changing planet. We will let Mother Earth know that we care. Together, we will go into meditation, sending our love, and intention for the healing and safety of Australia and those affected by the fires.
The power of mass intention may ultimately be the force that
shifts the tide toward repair and renewal of the planet
Join me Friday January 10th, from 6 - 7:30pm at The Yoga Centre of Niagara
