Oh, what a year!

This holiday season I received three different cards that quoted the statement: “Oh, what a year!”. The cards, displaying various photos, all referred to 2017 as a remarkable year. Some with exciting news of family accomplishments, successful events, wonderful travel and others looking at some of the intensities life brought to the individual and the world at large. All in all, it has been a year with many changes, transitions and opportunities for growth and recalibration.

Over the past week or so I have reflected on the year and also how Desert Song has weathered all the changes that 2017 has brought. Desert Song is a place that I began over 34 years ago with a love and a passion for yoga and the healing arts; as a way to know ourselves better, to become better human beings and to apply that knowing to our lives and to the world around us. This holds true now more than ever. We believe that the wisdom of the healing arts can connect us to our own sense of wholeness and in turn support a compassionate view toward all. We stand as a community that invites you to come as you are, to replenish and strengthen yourself, and then to go be the peace that you seek.

May this year bring all of us closer to the true essence of yoga which is spirit, compassion and community. Try one of our new offerings at the center. You’ll be glad you did. It may offer you more than you had imagined.

With love and appreciation,

Mary Beth
