Newsletter for Dec. 31st

Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.

So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.

Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do It.

Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”
Neil Gaiman

Dear Friends,

I couldn’t wish for a better group to spend 2021 with! Whether we have seen each other weekly, or just once in a while, or just exchanged a few messages, I appreciate you. Thank you so much for your generosity and kindness, it makes our practices so special. Thank you for your flexibility with venues — and so much more! I don’t know how I got so lucky to have you all in my life, but hope that never changes! You are the best!

I also want to draw your attention to a couple of offerings coming up in 2022. The first is Erica Thibodeax’s Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction 8 week program. I have taken this program and returned many years for the day-long retreat. Erica is one of my favorite meditation teachers to work with, and I always gain from her wisdom. And taking part in a program is the best way I know of to actually set aside the time it takes to develop a mindfulness practice in your life.

The second is a Soma Yoga class led by Mitra Emad. I took her fall class and gained so much from it. If you are looking for a gentle practice on Saturday mornings, this is a great one.

Feel free to ask me about my experiences with these teachers or reach out to them as they are both very responsive and helpful.
