I created this for the Winter Wellness Workshop that I did recently with my gal, Steph. I've been using it for regular classes and practice lately too, and well, it's simply nice for a winter day.

For my Women's Winter Yin Series that I'm currently running, I've been choosing a different book for each practice and opening to a random page (oracle style) to gather the wisdom of the current moment. They have all so far been in alignment of solitude, acceptance, spirit, and inner consciousness. It's fascinating. Here's a gem from Pema Chodron's Awakening Loving-Kindness:
"Learning to be not too tight and not too loose is an individual journey through which you discover how to find your own balance: how to relax when you find yourself being too rigid; how to become more elegant and precise when you find yourself being too casual."
