Day 2: Be in Truth

40 min - Practice
12 likes

Description

Welcome to Day 2! Today we practice inhabiting or abiding in Satya, or truthfulness. We will play with experiments to help us become more intimate with our instruments of listening, and to increase our capacity to align with our truth. Together we investigate what it feels like in the body to be resting in a place of radical truth, authenticity, and connectedness. Go easy on yourself. We are in this together.

Your journaling assignment for today is attached below, as well as a copy of the Chant Call and Response.

Hmmm....I'm very curious.... I will be paying attention through out my day to what lies I'm telling myself......
Can't wait to hear how this goes, Astrid. Some of the lies I tend to repeat are about not having enough space and time for what I want or need to do AND about confusing external pressure with internal expectations of myself. We are well-acquainted! All love to you!

I'm really enjoying this self care challenge. The journaling exercises are especially helpful for me. It is a good opportunity for me to become self-reflective.
SO happy to read this, Kay. Welcome! Happy you are here with us.

I felt uncomfortable with this idea from word one but it's something I've been wondering about for a very long time. I feel it has a huge bearing on everything in life from relationships, work, pleasure, physical issues, appetite and on and on. Thank you Kelly for including it.
I FEEEEEEEL you, Louise. Thank you for going there! When I'm doing these deep dives, it is such a source of comfort-strength-resilience that we are ALL in it together. LOVE.

Kelly, Kelly, Kelly - I love your gentle, humorous and open wisdom. It's welcoming, refreshing and inspiring. The practice of Satya is one that comes up time and again for me. I told my 6:00 a.m. class today that I clung to the belief that I am not a morning person for half of my life. When I finally teased apart that untruth/lie; I realized that I could start living another way. Maybe staying up until 1:00 a.m. was creating my lie.? I still didn't want to believe it until I spent time experimenting with bedtimes and found that - imagine this - I felt better at 6:00 a.m. when I went to bed at 9:30! I'm now on my 6th year of teaching a Monday morning 6:00 a.m. class and it's one of my favorite rituals. I'm working on some other big lies I tell myself for this challenge. Thank you for putting yourself out there, for being real. I am feeling the power of this challenge and passing it on. Yay yoga!
Laurie!! I FEEEEEL that. One of my big lies was telling myself that I was an extrovert FOR YEARS. I assumed that since I love people and am not really shy, I must be an extrovert. Well, both of those things are still true, but I am honoring now that I require much alone (& ultra-quiet) time to recharge. Now, I find that I can really BE with people and love the time together so much more if I have a 7pm "curfew" most days. TRUTH. Love love!

Thanks, and I think I need the next days to watch myself, to identify my little and big lies and truths. This might be a challenge, and to be in this spot ... in this feeling of "a the big truth" sounds so simple and is on the other side so hard. I love this challenge.
Silke, you have touched on SUCH a big insight here: what sounds simple is often some of the most potent & profound work we can do.... such good work! Thank you for sharing!! xo!
