No, it’s not me going back to my high school or college. But where my life was so incredibly changed.
I leave in a few hours for my return to Peterborough, UK. I completed my Forrest Yoga Foundation Training there two years ago. I can’t believe it’s been only two years – I feel so incredibly different than when I started this journey. I’m assisting my second Foundation training led by Ana Forrest and including assistants that assisted my training. This feels like my family.
Don’t get me wrong – I love my family with all my heart. They have been there for me in ways that I am forever grateful. But this group – Ana, Jose, Sandra, Jambo, Sita, and Ros – they’ve seen me through my shit. And I cannot wait for the moment I’m able to pull each of them in my arms and thank them.
I’m working in my own little corner to Mend the Hoop of the People. And I’ve realized that Hoop Mending begins with myself – and from there, I can help students, friends, teachers, and other to feel their own strength within, to lift their heads, and to face the world in the security that I’m there next to them; and they are next to me.
Homecoming. It’s about reconnecting. It’s about love. And it’s about celebrating every moment our paths cross.
