I'm writing in a tree house of a sancuary in Nosara, Costa Rica. Crazy I'd sit still enough to write a bit, but I'm in a reflective mood as usual around equinox or solstice juncture. I'm spending 2 weeks with Shiva Rea and Demetri in a demanding intense yoga teacher program. Such a beauty here, I hate to try to do it justice with words. I experience Nature though my senses and my heart, so when I try to translate it using the filter of my left brain, I fall flat sometimes. I don't think I'm wired to channel life experience this way. The teacher training sessions have really showed me this challenge. I practice and feel yoga through my body, not thinking, but feeling and following the flow of my breath. Talking and describing what I am doing is exactly teaching and it's a whole new ball game for me.
There are some wonderful, easy going people I have met from all over the globe here. Making this experience even more pleasant, is the fresh healthy food, sweet people, abundant exotic wildlife and incredible yoga Sadhana. The salt water pool, 86 degree ocean and amazing sunsets really add to the magic. I may not be gathering leaves and stirring dyepots, but I'm stirring my Prana up and I have a feeling my next inspiring creative binge will be rich with color and maybe a few seashells!
