Yoga Journal #77: The finishing sequence.

Today was our last day of training – it was surreal to say the least.

Holly asked us to sum up in one word – the journey or experience that we have come on and I was stumped. The first word that came to my mind was “life changing” followed by “transformative” followed by “incredible”.

But how can i?

How can I sum up in one word this experience? How can I reduce to characters in an alphabet this sense of new beginnings, or awakening or budding, of absolute life changing journey. It’s not possible. You have to experience it to know it.

It was the most emotional sun salutations ever. When Kamilia began with generosity and ‘when you are generous in spirit and you give, it is when you give that you never feel that it has cost you anything”. Maybe because Holly had mentioned my generosity in my teaching feedback, but the tears just rolled off my face, dripping onto my mat – this new mat, which is really at the end of one journey and the start of a very new one and already dripping with emotion and heart and sweat and tears.

My eyes were red, my gaze was blurred, my heart was beating and the words filled my senses:

love, truth, generosity, gratitude, peace.

Peace. Peace. Peace.
