Welcome!!! I am so glad that you are here. This meetup, group, space, is a place where we can find acceptance, communion, compassion, and hold discussions that will awake the seeker inside of us. It is a place where we can show up as we are, to express our truth, voice our opinion, or simply be present, and inhale the energy created by the intentions we will create together. None of us are neither too much nor too little, we are perfect and enough. This is where we can remind ourselves of that.
For far too long I have been resisting looking inside, afraid of the pain I would have to endure, or avoiding the fear of being empty. Who am I? What is my purpose? Who is behind all these emotions? I found that by not looking, the pain and the emptiness were still there, and they were defining who I was. So, I decided to take a leap of faith, quit a career of 17 years in corporate, and embarked on a long spiritual journey in India and Nepal to search for my essence. Yes, the inner journey is intense, confusing at times, but connecting to ourselves and reaching home, even if sometimes it's just for a few moments, makes the whole journey worthy.
I found that sharing our experiences, fears and desires offers a great opportunity to grow and to heal. And I would be honored to spend some time getting to know you, and in that process also learning about myself. The meetings do not have a structure format. We will always start by opening a circle and honor our presence, and the rest we will leave up to where the energy wants to take us. We might dance, talk, meditate or breath together. Or better yet, do all of them together.
