Peace Blessing From The Vedas

This is the peace blessing from yoga class on Monday & Tuesday (7/24 & 7/25). It's from the Vedas, ancient sacred Hindu texts. While the blessing is thousands of years old, its call for peace feels especially right in today's world. Perhaps you can add this blessing to your yoga or meditation practice, or your Reiki work this week, allowing the sweet intention of peace to bloom in you and in your practice.

May there be peace in the higher regions;
May there be peace in the firmament;
May there be peace on earth.

May the waters flow peacefully;
May the herbs and plants grow peacefully;
May all the divine powers bring unto us peace.

May we all be in peace, peace, and only peace.
And may that peace come unto each of us.

"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step."


Welcome to the present moment. I have no grand notions for this blog. Primarily I hope that it serves as a helpful tool for yoga students who attend my Madison (and Culpeper) classes, Reiki students and practitioners, and massage clients (both current, former, and future).

(If there's something on here of interest to anyone else, then I've greatly exceeded my teeny expectations.)

On this site, I'll try to ...

  • Keep you up-to-date on yoga classes in Madison & Culpeper ... alert you to the start of new sessions ... answer or expand on questions that were raised in class ... and chatter on about, or expand on, themes in recent classes;

  • Provide the latest info on my massage schedule in both Madison & Orange ... further describe my practice, specialties, & techniques ... offer online only "specials" ... and make it easy for you to make an appointment or order gift certificates with just the click of a mouse;

  • Let you know about my upcoming workshops and retreats;

  • Give special info and news on the world of Reiki to help support the practice of those practitioners who have attended my trainings and workshops; and

  • Share a peaceful journey with you ... by offering inspirational quotes, news, and other bits of info that I come upon that inspire my journey ... and, perhaps, yours as well.

I'll be back to you soon with some of all of that. In the meantime, don't forget to breathe!
