“Mindfulness of the body is the body’s mindfulness.” Yoga and meditation are valuable tools for strengthening the body, balancing the mind and recovering a spirit of joyful inquiry. Mindfulness comes from presence and a practice of self-care that increases our capacity to care for others.
A Calling to CARE
What do you care about? Often, we see what needs to be done but are afraid to act. Caring does not ask for perfection. Doubts arise and may be investigated; but awareness grows as the mind stills. We are only asked to do the best we can with what we have. Cultivating trust in our innate gifts and acceptance of our short comings, we continue along our path, moving deeper into the journey of caring.
CARE into Action
How well do you care? Empathy is the awareness of suffering and compassion requires us to do something about it. Action begins with intention. Change happens when we organize our energy around an intention, align our resources and focus attention on our calling to care.
