🌿 Sacred Pathways: 🌕 Full Flower Moon: Time for Reflection and Renewal 🌸

Dear Reader,

I am thrilled to introduce the very first edition of our weekly newsletter, “Sacred Pathways,” coming to you every Wednesday—Mercury Day! It feels significant, considering Wednesday’s association with communication, intellect, and new beginnings. Here, we come together to connect, share, and evolve as a community.

“Sacred Pathways” has been brewing in my heart for some time now. It emerged as a whisper, a promise of something really special, though I had no idea what direction it would take. This space is where we can be raw, unfiltered, and vulnerable. Sharing what we’re learning, diving into, and discovering. My hope is to act as a Yogic tour guide for your adventure. It’s my intention that we all find places and spaces like this in our lives—a sanctuary where we can truly be ourselves and stay open, curious, and connected.

The other day, as I drove to my Yoga at The Boathouse class, I found myself immersed in the wisdom shared on the Michael Mead podcast. And suddenly, it clicked—Sacred Pathways was meant to be a newsletter! This newsletter serves as your personal refuge of soulful insights, practical tips, and gentle reminders to nurture your mind, body, and spirit. It’s my offering to share resources, inspiration, practices, and love in every way I can.

As we bask in the radiant glow of the full flower moon, we’re presented with a beautiful opportunity to release, nourish, and rejuvenate. This celestial alignment, enhanced by the moon’s glow and astrological position, beckons us towards a state of bliss and inner illumination. Embracing the full moon’s energy allows us to shed old patterns, nurture our souls, and embrace the transformative power of the present moment. This auspicious connection with the cosmos serves as a reminder of the interconnectedness of all things, inspiring a deeper sense of self-awareness and spiritual awakening.

I’m excited to hear what you want to explore in these newsletters. Whether it’s new insights, practices, or inspiration, let me know what resonates with you. Together, we can create a journey of continuous growth and transformation.

🎙️ Podcast Highlight: Michael Mead on Myth, Wisdom, and Community

Dive into the wisdom of Michael Mead as he explores the power of myth and the importance of community in our journey of awakening. His podcast is a treasure trove of stories and insights that resonate deeply with our shared values of connection and transformation. [Listen here]

📄 Research Spotlight: The Efficacy of Yoga Therapy

Discover the latest findings on the benefits of Yoga Therapy with this insightful research paper. Learn how evidence-based practices are transforming lives and enhancing well-being. This paper is a must-read for those passionate about integrating yoga into their holistic health routines. Read more on the Efficacy of Yoga Therapy and its applications for mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, and PTSD【​ (MDPI)​​ (BioMed Central)​​ (Cambridge)​

I’m excited to share a special addition to our newsletter – a curated playlist of somatic movement and wisdom songs! 🎶 I invite you to take a moment to immerse yourself in the rhythmic flow of these songs and let them guide you on a journey of movement and self-discovery. Whether you’re moving through yoga sequences, practicing mindfulness, or simply seeking a moment of tranquility, this playlist is here to inspire you and awaken our collective hearts.

🌕 Soma Practice: Embodying the Full Moon

Ah, somatics—such a buzzword these days, right? But let’s peel back the layers of hype and get to the core of it. Somatics is all about allowing your soul to fully occupy your form. It’s where the magic happens, where the spirit likes to dress up like this (yes, borrowing a line from Mary Oliver) and reminds us that our bodies are wisdom libraries.

  1. Moon Salutations: Begin with a series of gentle moon salutations to open your heart and connect with the lunar energy. I like this guide from Ekhart Yoga,
  2. Lunar Breath: Practice a calming breathwork sequence, inhaling deeply through your nose and exhaling slowly through your mouth, aligning your breath with the moon’s phases.
  3. Embodying Light: Imagine the moonlight filling your body, starting from your feet and rising to the crown of your head. Feel this light energizing and purifying every cell.
  4. Grounding Meditation: Sit or lie down in a comfortable position, and visualize roots growing from your body into the earth, grounding you while the moonlight continues to fill you with its serene energy.

This practice is a beautiful way to honor the full moon and nurture your awareness.

And finally,

📚 Summer Reading List: Nourish Your Mind and Soul

This summer, immerse yourself in these inspiring and transformative reads:

  • Returning Home to Our Bodies by Abigail Rose: A beautiful guide on reconnecting with our physical selves, this book offers profound insights and practical exercises to deepen your relationship with your body. We are going to be reading this together and embodying the beautiful work of my friend Abigail in our Yoga at The Boathouse Classes. Join here.
  • Yoga and Science in Pain Care: Treating the Person in Pain by Neil Pearson and Shelly Prosko: An essential read for anyone interested in the therapeutic applications of yoga. This book provides a comprehensive exploration of yoga therapy’s principles and practices in pain. Shelly is a dear teacher of mine and Neil and I are in an IAYT committee together. I am so proud and honored to share their work. These practices are so powerful.
  • The Big Leap: Gay Hendricks suggests that each person has an innate capacity for happiness and success but often self-sabotages when they reach their upper limit of what they believe they deserve. By identifying and transcending these limits, individuals can break through barriers and live a life of abundance, love, and creativity. This book was mandatory reading for my Master Healer training with Tiffany Carole and totally transformed my thinking.

That’s all for now! Until next week.

xoxo,

Jeanette

🌙✨🌑 New Moon Blessings: Embrace the Intelligent Beauty of Your Body

🌙✨🌑 New Moon Blessings: Embrace the Intelligent Beauty of Your Body

Dear Reader,

Wild Geese | Mary Oliver

You do not have to be good.

You do not have to walk on your knees

for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.

You only have to let the soft animal of your body

love what it loves.

Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.

Meanwhile the world goes on.

Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain

are moving across the landscapes,

over the prairies and the deep trees,

the mountains and the rivers.

Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,

are heading home again.

Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,

the world offers itself to your imagination,

calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting–

over and over announcing your place

in the family of things.

In these verses, I find echoes of my own journey, a reminder that amidst the chaos and demands of the world, there’s a sanctuary within us waiting to be discovered—the sacred temple of our own bodies.

Picture this: every fiber of your being humming with the secrets of the cosmos—the soft inhale of breath, the steady pulse of your heart. he spanda, the great pulsation, and ebb and flow of prana, or life force, are ever-present, continuously engaging in a delicate dance with everything around us. Our bodies are not mere flesh and bone; they are a symphony of life, intricately connected to everything around us.

Consider your heartbeat—the drumbeat of your existence, echoing cosmic rhythms from the womb to the last moment. Each throb reflects your deepest feelings, connecting us with others and syncing with the universal cadence that binds all of life. The

Take a deep breath. Feel your lungs expand, cradling your heart within. As you exhale, release the weight of the world—a graceful act of letting go. Every incoming breath sustains life, every outgoing breath a gentle surrender.

Your skin, a canvas of life’s stories, invites us to experience the world in its raw authenticity. Through touch, we communicate, connect, and ground ourselves in the present moment. Through touch, we bring peace.

And let’s not overlook the remarkable power of neuroplasticity—the brain’s ability to evolve, adapt, and grow with every experience, a testament to our resilience and infinite potential.

But here’s the magic: our bodies aren’t just shaped by our experiences; they carry the echoes of our ancestors, the wisdom of generations past, woven into the fabric of our DNA.

We possess an incredible capacity for healing, weaving stories of resilience and renewal with each moment.

Step into a journey designed with love, just for you. Whether you’re a yoga teacher seeking guidance, yearning for a sincere community to practice with at our Yoga At The Boathouse sessions, or seeking the healing embrace of our Massage Membership, let us wrap you in care and click to begin your path of self-discovery.

And with the new moon and Golden day in Jyotish (May 10th) upon us, there’s no better time to invest in yourself—to nurture your body, mind, and spirit, and to bask in the abundance of love and peace that awaits.

With warmth and excitement,

Jeanette

Beltane Blessings

Beltane Blessings

A Blessing for Beauty
May the beauty of your life become more visible to you, that you may glimpse your wild divinity.
May the wonders of the earth call you forth from all your small, secret prisons
And set your feet free in the pastures of possibility.
May you recognize in your life the presence,
Power, and light of your soul.
May you realize that you are never alone,
That your soul in its brightness and belonging
Connects you intimately with the rhythm of the universe.
May you have respect for your individuality and difference.
May you realize that the shape of your soul is unique,
That you have a special destiny here,
That behind the façade of your life,
There is something beautiful and eternal happening.
John O’Donohue

Dear Reader,

As the earth bursts into bloom and the days stretch longer, we welcome the exuberance of Beltane, a vibrant time of year when life’s potent energies are most palpable. Beltane, celebrated today on the first of May, heralds the promise of new beginnings and the full blossoming of spring. It’s a moment to revel in the beauty of the promising world around us, ignite passions, and foster growth in all aspects of our lives. A sacred time that invites us to step into the light of the year and immerse ourselves in renewal, vitality, and joy.

Just as the earth itself renews, so too do we experience our own cycles of rebirth and flourishing. Beltane encourages us to honor these natural rhythms and discover the vibrant energy within, especially during these luminous days.

Beltane – A Time of Fertility and Celebration:

Beltane, pronounced “bell-tayn,” marks the midpoint between the spring equinox and the summer solstice. It’s a time to celebrate the fertility of the earth, the strength of the growing sun, and the potential within us all to bring forth new life and ideas. This ancient festival ignites the fires of creativity and passion, offering us an opportunity for profound growth and joy.

Connecting with the Vibrancy of Life:

During Beltane, we connect with the vibrant pulse of the earth, acknowledging the beauty and abundance that surround us. It’s a moment to cultivate joy, embrace the energies of growth, and dance with the vitality that flows through all living things. Let’s remember the importance of this celebration, especially as we seek to nourish and inspire our community.

Ritual – A Gateway to Joy:

Rituals are the heartbeats of celebration, helping us create joyful spaces, set intentions for growth, and connect with the blossoming energies that guide our lives. Beltane rituals can include dancing around the Maypole, jumping over fires to purify and renew, or simply taking a moment to breathe in the sweet air of spring and let its freshness inspire new paths forward.

This Beltane, I invite you to embrace the dance of the season. Consider creating your own vibrant space, a sacred area where you can celebrate the fertility of the earth and the creativity within you. Perhaps create an altar adorned with flowers, symbols of fertility and growth. Incorporate the five elements—Earth with blossoms or seeds; Water with dew or a bowl of spring water; Fire with candles to represent the sun’s energy; Air with incense or fresh breezes; and Ether with the sound of music. Let this be a place where joy is sown, where the beauty of life blossoms, and where your spirit dances to the rhythm of the earth.

Embrace Spring’s Transformation: Beltane Blessings and Exciting Updates

Embrace Spring’s Transformation: Beltane Blessings and Exciting Updates


“On the day when

the weight deadens

on your shoulders

and you stumble,

may the clay dance

to balance you.

And when your eyes

freeze behind

the grey window

and the ghost of loss

gets into you,

may a flock of colours,

indigo, red, green

and azure blue,

come to awaken in you

a meadow of delight.

When the canvas frays

in the currach of thought

and a stain of ocean

blackens beneath you,

may there come across the waters

a path of yellow moonlight

to bring you safely home.

May the nourishment of the earth be yours,

may the clarity of light be yours,

may the fluency of the ocean be yours,

may the protection of the ancestors be yours.

And so may a slow

wind work these words

of love around you,

an invisible cloak

to mind your life.”

John O’Donohue

Dear Reader,

I’m thrilled to share some updates as we approach the beautiful turning of the wheel signified by Beltane, fully embracing the transformative power of spring! Recently, we wrapped up our vibrant virtual program, Radiant, focused on reclaiming sensuality and celebrating the sheer joy of being. It was an inspiring journey that left many of us feeling more connected to our bodies and our desires.

Adding to that, we had the most beautiful Spring Equinox gathering at the boathouse. Imagine weekly sessions surrounded by the gentle lapping of water, the air filled with the promise of new beginnings—it was truly magical. These gatherings have not only deepened our connection with nature but also with each other, fostering a sense of community and mutual support.

On a personal note, this season has been a time of profound shifts for me in life and love. Embracing change, learning to flow with it, and seeing where it leads, has been both challenging and exhilarating. These experiences are shaping how I approach everything, from daily interactions to the deepest relationships.

Excitingly, we’ve just wrapped up Week 2 of our Ayurvedic Cleanse, which has been a revelation in wellness and rejuvenation for so many of us. The transformations are truly profound, and it’s not too late to join us as we continue this journey of cleansing and renewal.
