No Classes Thanksgiving Week

Peaceful Hands Massage & Yoga will be closed Thanksgiving week ~ November 22 thru November 28.

So ... no yoga classes & no meditation practice next week. But, that doesn't mean you can't unroll your mat at home!

In the meantime ... here's the link to the W.E.B Du Bois blessing from this week's Thanksgiving Yoga classes. I share this blessing every year and I hope you enjoy it: Thanksgiving Blessing

May you have much to be thankful for this holiday season. I know that I am especially thankful for all those friends who unroll their yoga mats with me each week!

Classes resume November 29 in Madison and December 1 in Orange.

I Give Thanks ...

In this month of Thanksgiving ... a poem of gratitude from Harriett Kofalk (author of The Peaceful Cook):

Awakening in a moment of peace
I give thanks
To the source of all peace

As I set forth into the day
The birds sing with new voices
And I listen with new ears
And give thanks

The flower called Angel’s Trumpet
Blows in the breeze
And I give thanks

My feet touch the grass
Still wet with dew
And I give thanks
Both to my mother earth
For sustaining my steps
And to the seas
Cycling once again
To bring forth new life

The dewdrops
Become jeweled
With the morning’s sun-fire
And I give thanks

You can see forever
When the vision is clear
In this moment
Each moment
I give thanks
