So I have taken a pretty significant break since my last post in early June. I have missed this site so much, and while I was away I took some much needed time for myself. I traveled to festivals, yoga centers, retreats, went camping & hiking in some of the most beautiful places in the Western part of the United States. I will be sharing many images & stories up on the site very soon.

The new moon has arrived in the sign of Capricorn, and what a strong energy it is. This morning in yoga class, my teacher Guru Jagat, owner of the Ra Ma Yoga Institute, said “this strong father like energy is asking us what is true value? What are your values? How do you express your values in your everyday life? These are important times to get clear on our answers and to share our gifts with the world around us.
We can use the rituals of the new moon as expressed in the new moon journal, created by Paula Mallis and Danielle Beinstein, to slow down, go inward, and actually find out the answers to these types of question and then ask the universe accordingly for what we want.
