PathtoFertility - Fertile Yoga and Meditation

rmact logoWe’re moving. We’re really moving. RMACT will be in our new, beautiful, state of the art home in January 2015.

 

One of the ways that I know that we’re moving? Our beloved home at 10 & 20 Glover Avenue in Norwalk is not quite how it’s been for the last decade plus. Hence, Fertile Yoga for the month of December in Norwalk is a thirty minute guided meditation instead.  No prenatal yoga at all in December.

 

This sounds like less, right? Thirty minutes instead of seventy five minutes is less. Forty minutes less, to be exact. And less is less is less. Right?

 

Not always.

 

Thomas Keller started a food revolution at the French Laundry in California. Someplace, that despite having visited the area fifty-one times in my life, I still have not eaten. That’s another story. This story is about how he feeds people there. He feeds them. Nourishes them. Sustains them.

 

With bite size pieces. With a taste. With many different tastes. He serves his guests many tender, different, exquisitely flavored, exotically created and textured bits. (OK, next time out, I’m going to the French Laundry, done.) One of the keys is that there is only one bite. Maybe two, very occasionally, three. Interviews with Chef Keller will confirm this, his portions are that small.

 

What a contrast to some of our favorite restaurants which serve humongous servings. Enough to share and still bring some home. Enough that the food is overflowing plates that could be, should be, serving plates for a party of three. In those restaurants, we know that we are getting what we paid for and then some. Is there a temptation to overeat? For some of us, many of us, there is. Do we taste the food after the first bite? The second bite? The seventeenth bite? Thomas Keller would say no.

 

My plan about our meditation time in Norwalk for the few weeks in December as we shift to our new beautiful space is to make these sessions that delicately flavored. That exotic. That rich and pleasurable. To use the time in a thoughtful, mindful way so that everyone who attends feels sated. Feels fully satisfied without being overstuffed. So that we all experience a practice that feels delicate and enriching.

 

To make a practice that lingers on the palette afterwards, as an echo that soothes the heart.

 

That is my intention for our meditation practices for December in Norwalk.

 

I would love for you to join me. December 4, 11, 18. No classes on Dec. 25 or Jan. 1.

 

Come get your taste.
