8 insights from the Fall Equinox Yoga Retreat

We had a wonderful weekend at Dreaming Mountain during the Fall Equinox Yoga and Relaxation Retreat 2013. Gratitude. Here are some images and insights from our time together. Learn more about JaneYoga retreats.   DM2013 property - fallequinox

  1. Observing the Fall Equinox, and the other changing seasons, is an auspicious time to observe changes within and to honor our connection to the world that we’re a part of.

  2. Practice gratitude that all things change. Practice gratitude for the abundance in your life, for the people who love you, for your health and sentience.

  3. At Fall Equinox, the sun and moon are in perfect balance, each in the sky for 12 hours. This is an opportune time to manifest balance in your life.

  4. Practicing yoga postures stokes agni, digestive fire within which leads to physical transformations.
  5. Participating in a fire ceremony shows a willingness to honor the transformative element of fire, to burn away fears and to pave the way for new resolves, as a phoenix rises from the ashes.DM2013 fire- fallequinox
  6. Yoga is a practice. Find a daily or weekly practice you can devote to that will help you keep your fire alive from summer through the dark days of winter.
  7. Fire and yoga help us to shine light in the dark and move beyond the limitations of the physical mind to higher consciousness.

  8. Silence is the greatest teacher. Practice tuning into silence, in nature if possible, over and over again returning to an empty state of mind with relaxed breathing. In this stare of non-doing, listen to the wisdom and messages within you and around you.

  1. Satya /

    You are a RADIANT LIGHT.

    Thank you for the energy you have dedicated your life to allowing to rise to the surface, flow freely and move out into the Universe.

    On the 21st, I was in NH with my dear friends Kelly and Robin, spending this time with them in complete silence, unleashing something powerful within. One year earlier, your radiant Love connected with the seed vibration of that something, which at the time, needed to be nurtured. That seed has taken root–and finally–broken through the Dark Night of the Earth–which has been many years and lifetimes I now see–and has blossomed into that “something”. It is beyond my wildest dreams.

    We, they, are all perfect.

    With deepest gratitude and love,

    Satya Devi Dasi

      You are a radiant light as well dharma sister. Thank you for this and much more. LOVE. 🙂

      We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls.
      Mother Teresa
