We are all tied together in invisible places,
The tearing of which diminishes us.

🌕For our Full Moon Dance and Soundbath @alcemeurbanretreat, we will be joining together under a Super Blood Wolf Moon! This is a culmination of a total lunar eclipse, and the Moon’s orbit at its closest point to the Earth. It is also a celebration of the ancient ties between wolves and the Moon, and the cultural creation story that the Wolf gave birth to the Moon by singing it into the sky.
.
🌕This event will be a powerful opportunity to set an intent of how you wish to start afresh for your 2019, with a focus on relationships....
.
🌕How do you relate to yourself? How do you relate to others?
.
🌕As Full Moon Medicine invites us to release that which no longer serves us, and Lunar Eclipses are about Embodiment.... through ceremony, dance and sound, you will be supported to release limitations to having a balanced, healthier and harmonious relationship with yourself, and embodying those changes.
.
🌕See you in the sacredness of your wild dance 💛
Rain spirit meditation, and the deep quiet wisdom of winter. It is often in the dark night when we are called see what truly wants to be illuminated. The winter reminds me to have patience.

The Radiance Sutras pretty much sums it up. (Take your time with this one...)
.
The One Who Is at Play Everywhere says,
There is a space in the heart
where everything meets.
Come here if you want to find me.
Mind, senses, soul, eternity – all are here.
Are you here?
Enter the bowl of vastness that is the heart.
Listen to the song that is always resonating.
Give yourself to it with total abandon.
Quiet ecstasy is here,
And a steady,
Regal sense of resting in a perfect spot.
You who are the embodiment of blessing,
Once you know the way,
The nature of attention will call you to return.
Again and Again, answer that call,
And be saturated with knowing, “I belong here, I am at home.” ————-Radiance Sutra Translated by Lorin Roche #26 . 💫. Thank you for meeting me here✨. Thank you @kripalucenter for hosting us. Thank you @shannoncarlinyoga For the photo 💕🦋 and thank you @rootsyogaburlington for the Sutra. It is everything. #DeepListening
Imagine all the sounds we can hear at night ... #listen #deeplistening #night #nighttime #photography #rawsound #sound #quiet #silent #imagine #imagination
Last week, a very special person in my life shared these words with me.

To me, they capture the ideal of how I wish to be in conversations. Whether it is as a coach, mentor, father, partner or friend, if I can move away from controlling the conversation and learn to pay attention and be curious, I know I will learn much more.

And so will the person I am talking to.

What do these words mean to you?

💎 January Jewels 💎 this months yoga classes focus on different jewels of wisdom that come from the yoga sutras. Last week we looked at devotion- devotion as dedication to your practice (abhyasa) and devotion in motion while on your mat to calm and still the mind. This week we examine how our inner light can shine brightly when we remove the obstacles presented by the ego, fear, and anything that stands in the way of being our true self and release the expectations, the judgment, the inner critic within. We aren’t defined by just one thing that we identify with or others identify us as-we are bigger and brighter than that. Shine bright, my friends. ✨ And come join me for my remaining yoga classes this week:
Wednesday, 5:45 pm- Prenatal Yoga - The Yoga Loft
Thursday, 12-1 pm- Kids Play Moms Namaste Yoga, PM for location
Friday, 12:15-1 pm, Lunchtime Flow, AntiGravity Yoga
🎬Outtakes 🎬...Spent some time recording a video that explains what drew me to Contemplative practices and what Contemplation is in response to some questions I’ve been getting...and well, some friends joined me...
...
You can view the parts that aren’t on the cutting room floor in the #contemplatehouston Facebook Group and on my IGTV channel. ✨🐶
We have an exciting new edition out in February and more deep listening to offer outside our usual two month cycle, so it's a great time to take a subscription where you'll get all Longform Editions from 2018 as well. Light on the pocket, deep sounds forever.

We hold onto so many false beliefs and live in our heads so much. If your following this account I guess I’m most likely talking to an open door on that one. It’s moving away from this and moving into the body so we can better connect to our fullest moment by moment that drives me.
.
The best instrument to help us with this? The body. With the body as the instrument, the breath as the source and our voice as the conductor of the sound we have everything available to us to self heal and forge better connections to our self and each moment.
.
With this in mind and body I’m in the process of documenting some of the tools I know, have been passed on through training and development and use myself and in sessions into a series of workshops that will start towards the end of the spring. They will involve some gentle movement and the odd face pull as demonstrated.... so as with any space to heal humour will be invited in by the spoonful to hold our delicate dispositions Mary Poppins style. .
If this sounds of interest do sign up to the newsletter (link in bio and follow the pop up). You’ll also get a free download with some listening and sound exercises that you can add to your self care tool kit. .

Passion grows and passion fades. It blossoms and those blossoms fall. It yellows and the rains come. It rehydrates and renourishes. It withdraws. It blooms again. •
Constantly grateful for the teachings of this Earth and all her inhabitants, mostly the ones that do not speak but share wisdom if we listen closely and observe. •

An unfolding conversation about the examen, a spiritual practice that’s a living conversation about what brings you alive and what you need to do next. All held in Love.
♥️
The newsletter goes out Thursday. It will offer more tangible steps and a few metaphors that, I hope, give you a sense of what can emerge from this practice with the Sacred.
Reach out if you’d like to know more!
There's a voice
She's in there
And somehow
Somedays
I'm clouded by the sensory experience
And she becomes out of range

How do we lose touch?
How do we reconnect?

Be soft
Be quiet
Be still

I see you
Waiting patiently for my return

I'll come home soon, I promise

My understanding of this land is shifting. I have unwavering love and reverence for Israel - even while learning her shadow side. We all have one. I want not to believe some of the things that I hear, but my sources are reliable. I’m working to accept the darker complexities as the keys to open doors of new possibilities - here and inside my own heart. Be real with what’s here and keep loving.
We’ll be performing our cut-up dreamscape piece ‘Flicker & Sustain’ in celebration of Art’s Birthday this Saturday, without dream machine this time, au natural in the beautiful surroundings of Springfield Park bandstand...

Voice DNA sessions are suitable for all levels, with a different theme each week.
✨👂Next week's theme is 'The Listening Voice'. We will explore how deep listening can be a tool for mindfulness and relaxation. We will learn to listen to other voices without compromising our own. We will also practice listening to our own body, breath, emotions and inspiration that arise in the moment.
✏️22nd of Jan Tuesday 7-9 pm in Hackney Downs.

John Paul Lederach has spent three decades mediating peace and change in 25 countries — from Nepal to Colombia and Sierra Leone. His conflict-resolution work focuses on building relationships between unlikely allies as a way of dismantling the concept of "us vs. them". "Imagine yourself in a relationship with your enemy and if that's not present, peace-building itself collapses," he says.

For most of you reading my posts here,  you may not really need them: you're trucking along through life just fine. But for some of you, maybe just a few,  every single day feels like climbing Mount Everest with no gear: overwhelming, hopeless, devoid of beauty and magic and sweetness; a lonely road. My friend -- these posts are for you.  I am no stranger to these difficult pathways and think of you as my traveling companions. Blessings on your day, sweet ones, and love, and hope, and beauty.

I'm quite a sensitive soul and opening up too much to the suffering of the world can easily lead me to fall into despair & overwhelm, especially in winter. So I open in small doses. I no longer watch the news on TV, which has such a negativity bias, and trust if I need to know I will find out. Instead I read Positive News which is more realistic & motivating and listen to enriching, diverse discussions on the radio & podcasts. I also reserve my energy to listen deeply to my loved ones, friends & yoga students, to their suffering & vulnerability. There is such a strong internal, spiritual and cultural pressure to do better and do more ....but I am slowly, slowly learning that how I am living is already so much, it is already enough.

“Theatre is my home. This feels more like home to me than my actual home. So coming to rehearsal, coming to be a part of a show, that’s like coming home. Even though sometimes it’s stressful or I forget a line or something’s happening, it’s still the best part of my day because I’m getting to do what I love the most with people that understand me.”⠀

Captured by PSU student Skye McLaren Walton while volunteering at Twilight Theater Company.⠀

Our bodies. Mostly water.
The essence, though. That part. It’s all spirit.
In both.
Welcome ease.
Be gentle.
Practice surrender.
Flow. 🌬🌊
Busy? In the flow? The hustle? The joy? The overwhelm? I’ll meet you there!
♥️
So...2 things. When life is like this, my whole examen practice can be answering 1 question, “For what am I most grateful today?”
♥️
Or...I grab 5 minutes between things and follow this card:
1. 1 thing I’m grateful for.
2. Name my surroundings and emotions best I can in the moment.
3. Surrender. “Hey God, you’re within me and around me and you love me, so can you help with _________? Also, please be obvious because I’m barely aware. Thank you! Also, help me keep my eyes, ears and heart open so I can see you in all things...I don’t wanna miss your help!” ♥️
Does that count as contemplation? Yes. Yes, it does.
♥️
Does it look like this everyday? No. No, it doesn’t. Life changes. Amen.

There’s really common theme when I ask facilitators what skills make a great facilitator.⠀
.⠀
The answer? ⠀
.⠀
It’s about the ability to listen. Not only to the words, but listening in to what’s happening in the room, listening to what’s not being said, listening into the nonverbal cues. ⠀
.⠀
Knowing this, I brought on a listening expert for today’s episode, @Oscartrimboli to hear his perspective on ‘Deep Listening’, and also his tips for First Time Facilitators.⠀

Oscar is also giving away 5 copies of his book 'Deep Listening'. Simply snap a screenshot of the podcast episode, upload it to Instagram and tag @oscartrimboli and @leannehughes to be in the draw to win!⠀

Meet Apu Pastoruri | Pastoruri is a cirque glacier located in Ancash, Peru and is also Apu, a mountain god. Snow-capped peaks are commonly venerated in the Andes because they’re the origin of water, the liquid essential to human life.

Eight years ago I was fortunate to visit this Apu. I can not truly describe how sad I feel to know that perhaps during my lifetime, the glacier will completely disappear. It is rapidly receding due to global warning.
While we argue whether climate change is a real issue, the elders of Ancash watch the mountain gods weep because they are sad.

Just like the elders, I want to make the Apu happy again. I have always believed that a group of committed and thoughtful people, how ever small, can make a difference. So, in 2019, one of my goals is to continue to explore the ways I can improve my environmental footprint.

Listening to our inner intelligence and following our calling requires courage, at times hard work, regular reflection and even reinvention to steer away from old paradigms. We are beckoned to dip our feet in the water, to build a boat and row into the unknown. We are asked to row harder, and at times to throw our oars into the wild ocean and trust that voice while quietening the rational mind. And that for me is the magic: discerning the rational mind from the heart’s song, to be attentive to the teacher within us. The trust and dedication requested is as deep and mysterious as the ocean and yet there is no other way then to listen, take a deep breath and make the ocean a dear friend.

For those that feel like there’s “got to be more to life than this” and those that are swift to quiet their inner voice…

........(in 2 pictures and a few words)...
....
Standing behind this podium and sitting behind many corporate desks a call to ministry sounded absolutely ridiculous to me...like non-sense. There was so much self talk about why I shouldn’t and couldn’t. Yet, there was also a persistent voice inside that said, “If you don’t give it a try part of you is going to die, to suffocate.”...

The call to ministry made no sense from behind an office desk. It makes absolute sense today as the pastor of @awakeningsmovement...
….
It’s not that I believe there is more. It’s that I know there is. I’m living in the more right now. That persistent voice? It is the Divine in you inviting you to see for yourself. Don’t quiet it, engage it, have dialogue with it. It will not go silent after you move, it will move with you...
...
Recently I shared a question and an invitation that helped change my perspective and continues to give me the confidence to ask for what I want and trust what I believe. The link to listen is in my bio under, “Ask for What You Want & Trust What You Believe.”..
...
You can listen now thanks to the skills of @guessur and the love of @awakeningsmovement...

Melony's Wisdom Mondays:
Honor the Axiom Tide. Walk In Truth Anyway!

Beautiful People, It is true. People may ignore you because of where you come from, your social status or your race. Even your birth family may choose to close their hearts to you when you have been baptized in Love.

Honor the Axiom Tide. Walk In Truth Anyway.

Truth is the only way to live as a Being of Love. Knowing, speaking and being the Truth is how we live Our Purpose.
Everyone has a purpose and a contribution to make on this planet. It is something that Only You can do, or say or write in the fabric of time.

Breath Deeply Ten Times.
In Truth and Love. Out Truth and Love. In Truth and Love... Your Good Destiny lies beyond the jealous or petty. Your Good Destiny Resides In the Heart of Love.

Even when it seems like all the familiar doors have closed, Please Don't Give Up.

Again Breathe Deeply.
In Truth and Love. Out Truth and Love... Honor the Axiom Tide. Walk With Compassion,Confidence, Courage and Integrity.
Walk in Truth Anyway!

Live & Love... Always, Melony

Peace is Possible through Compassion, Cooperation, Courage, Deep Listening, Faith, Forgiveness, Good Purpose, Hope,Integrity, Joy, Kindness, Mercy, Patience, Respect, Understanding and the Gift of Love!

:: Uncomfortable Spaces ::
.
The Valley of Transition.
.
Transitions are wobbly uncomfortable spaces. Unfamiliar landscapes. Crunchy turning points in life.
.
Some transitions are forced quickly upon us. Others arrive painfully slowly. Some are inevitable and achingly predictable.
.
We often feel numb, lost, hollow or rudderless as we journey to the other side. But journey we must into the unpredictable depths of the muddied waters.
.
Bow before a life transition.
.
Acknowledge its arrival. Offer up a cloak of willingness to lay with the messy uncertainty.
.
Vow to thy sacred self, to take one small step at a time.
.
It is a time to trust in the unseen path.
.
Trust that this too shall pass.
.
Trust we will find a door that opens to the other side.
.

What happens when one of Japan's best known house DJs takes a new age turn? Cham's Pocco for Longform Editions is a percussion and piano-led wonder that creates a new essence for classic Japanese ambient. Fans of Hiroshi Yoshimura and Haruomi Hosono, take note:

‘When listening to another person, don’t just listen with your mind, listen with your whole body. Feel the energy field of your inner body as you listen. You are giving the other person space - space to be. It is the most precious gift you can give.
Most people don’t know how to listen because the major part of their attention is taken up by thinking. They pay more attention to that, than to what the other person is saying, and none of it is what really matters: the Being of the other person underneath the words and mind. Of course, you cannot feel someone else’s Being except through your own. This is the beginning of the realisation of oneness, which is love.
At the deepest level of Being, you are one with all that is.’
~ Eckhart Tolle

And still, pressed deep into my mind, the river
keeps coming, touching me, passing by on its
Long journey, its pale, infallible voice
Singing.
