Dear Soul on other Side of the Screen,
One of the most interesting aspects of my work is that I have the honor to ask and answer questions with others about what truly nourishes our bodies, minds, hearts, and souls. In Qoya, we explore this most often through movement, then also ritual, community, and pilgrimages.
Some of the most common themes that emerge are: what is the balance between being able to function in this world but not be bound by it? How can we trust and follow what feels resonant while maintaining the relationships that are necessary in our families, businesses, and society? How do we manage our schedules being pulled in so many different directions while still staying true to where our hearts are calling us forward?
The answers are different for each person and different during different cycles of life. The navigational tool is becoming well-versed in how to access your inner wisdom, cultivating courage and confidence to express yourself authentically, and then expanding your capacity to prioritize nourishment. My hope is that every Qoya class strengthens each person's ability to do this.
For many of us, there’s often a soul ache when we measure the distance between what we felt called to do and what we accomplished. While there's always an invitation to celebrate, there is also an invitation for honest self-reflection.
As we approach the space between the solstice, the ending of the past year and the beginning of a new year, what emerges as you reflect on your journey?
How did you prioritize what is most important to you this last year?
How did you not prioritize what is most important to you this last year?
How will you prioritize what is most important to you this next year?
How are you concerned you will not prioritize what is most important to you this next year?
Are you wiling to take time to reflect and write down to the answers to these questions?
