Safe Places

We all need places where we can hide away and restore ourselves to our natural equilibrium when events become overwhelming. The cat loves this little hut as a quiet and dark place to hide away from us humans and the commotion of our lives. Simple shapes like standing, sitting, lying down, or kneeling with the belly resting on the legs allow us to reintegrate body, breath, mind, and heart before returning to the flow of a challenging practice on our mats. Off our mats the options are rather extensive depending on where we live and what suits us! We can leave town on camping trips, sit in quiet sunny corners of the house, allow moments on park benches, walk on wide swaths of empty beach…where do you go and how do you restore your natural state of steadiness and ease?
