The entire 7th week of my shiva nata practice took place in Mexico. I hope to have many years of discovering wonderful venues for shiva nata but this was my first “roadie” experience. The beach was great! When I came home and worked through the fast version of the combined arms and legs I saw how much progress I had made.
I am in my 8th week of shiva nata. This journal has played an important role in launching my practice. I feel blessed with my new shiva nata community of friends — a group of wonderful supportive people. I did a lot of thinking this past week and I came to one very important decision.
It is time to retire this blog.
What? You just got started! 8 weeks is nothing. What are you doing? Havi mentioned you on her blog several times. You can’t just stop now?!!!
I know! I have said this to myself many times in the past week. And still I know this is right. For a few reasons:
- I am touching places in my post shiva nata reflections that are intensely personal and well… private. They are important for me to journal about and not so important to share. TMI…you know?
- Crafting daily blog posts has been a labor of love and still– a labor. All these breathtaking epiphanies have also been working their magic for my real life’s work: my coaching practice with leaders in non-profit organizations, teams and private couples. That is where my time is needed most right now. I have tons of ideas for my monthly newsletter and I now write a column for Simple Marriage as well. (check for my post this Thursday!)
- There is a wonderful Shiva Nata Group Blog that Amy started not long after I started this one. I have contributed to it as well and I hope to continue to contribute. We are a great bunch of shivanauts and would love for you to join us with your comments and experiences.
- Havi– to whom I owe a debt of gratitude on so many levels– has her awesome shivanata blog, and to all of you who have purchased her starter kit, etc. you know how many other incredible resources she offers.
Thanks to all of you who have been incredibly generous with your comments and from whom I have learned so much. This is me signing off as I rub some hot buttered epiphanies on my sunburn. (Not! Actually I stayed in the shade like a good girl so no burns- just kidding!)
