Rested, we are ready for the world but not held hostage by it, rested we care again for the right things and the right people in the right way. In rest we reestablish the goals that make us more generous, more of an invitation, someone we want to remember, and someone others would want to remember too.” ~ David Whyte

In taking time to rest we invite a letting go…. and letting be. Nowhere to be other than here .. and now. Simply being here and allowing whatever wants to be known, felt, heard or seen.

Winter is a time for resting and nurturing our inner being.

Rested, we become prepared for what lies ahead.

If you are staying indoors to weather out tomorrow’s snow storm, why not join me for a Mid Winter workshop on Saturday January 29th from 10.00am – 12.00 pm ET. Give yourself the gift of rest, reflection, release, opening and connection for mind, body and spirit. This includes a gentle supportive yoga practice, suitable for every body with some yoga experience.

Please reach out to me via email – – and I will send you the Zoom link before the start of the workshop.

  1. David Whyte poems have become my favorite in recent months, I was happy to see you chose his lines, they are so beautiful. You convey an important message. Rest is absolultely so necessary, and I loved how you said it invites letting go.

  9. You’ve chosen such a perfect poem for not just the time of year, but for our time in the world: Your lines, “Winter is a time for resting and nurturing our inner being. Rested, we become prepared for what lies ahead.” and this is the optimism I am sharing with you, and the inspiration to be moving freely again.
