R&R - Reflection & Review


Here we are at the end of another term at MYSHA! How fast the time flies by!

As I notice the seasons starting to change, I am also brought to awareness the ways that we too are changing with the progressing year. Some of us begin to feel more comfortable as the weather promises to cool down and others feel the oncoming slump and the loss of the freedom and energy of the summer life. No matter which it is for us individually, whether we welcome it or not, I think it's worthwhile to acknowledge that the change of season is still a change and whenever we transition, we also need to adapt.

Thankfully at this time of the year, we also take a break for a couple of weeks for the Easter holidays. Whether you're staying at home or heading away, it's always beneficial to be mindful on our holidays to really take some time out for ourselves and to honour the adapting that we need to do as things around us shift and change.

As I write this, I've just noticed the old song "Turn, turn, turn" covered famously by The Byrds popping into my head. Here are the words - which incidentally are actually taken almost verbatim from the biblical book of Ecclesiastes.

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, a time to reap that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

Whenever a song comes in like this one just has, I always take a minute to look more closely into what it has to tell me. I guess this time we might just assume, well it's about the season changing and us adapting to that, as I've just been writing about, but there's also a big message about balance in this song too. That everything has a purpose and that perhaps there can't be, one thing without the absence of it at some point, as well.

Quite a nice point to rest on as we head into the holiday season isn't it!

This week at MYSHA we will be doing some therapeutic R&R of a more spiritual kind - reflection and review. It's time to check in with how we're feeling about our inner work throughout the term on SACRED SUPPORT .....and maybe to ask ourselves how we might find more sacred balance in the coming weeks!

We will be exploring in our usual multimodal ways through sacred flow movement, gentle yoga, breath work, meditation, sound and the visual arts together.

If you would like to join us, we meet this Friday at 9.30am at the MYSHA HeARTSpace in Highland Park. Click here to book in.

End of term also means that BOOKINGS are now being taken for all our Term 2 offerings:

MYSHA Girls - Thursdays 3.45-5.15pm

MYSHA Women - Fridays from 9.30am

I also have a couple of rare vacancies for the Find Your Voice Singing Clubs - Mondays OR Fridays 3.45-4.45pm. These groups are for girls between 7 and 13years.

And please remember to get your tickets to our very special MYSHA MUSIC event at Yogaji Studio on 31st March. This is a musical celebration of the full moon including a fire ceremony to help you release anything which no longer serves and to make way for the new! Children attend for FREE! There's also a delicious supper provided!
