“I’ve been trying to live my life so that in the hour of my death I would rather feel joy, than fear.”

 

– words attributed to Witold Pilecki after receiving a death sentence 

Please join me for a 65-minute virtual yoga practice on Zoom today (Sunday, September 19th) at 2:30 PM. You can use the link from the “Class Schedules” calendar if you run into any problems checking into the class. You can request an audio recording of this practice via a comment below or (for a slightly faster reply) you can email me at myra (at) ajoyfulpractice.com.

Today’s playlist is available on YouTube and Spotify

(The YouTube video contains extra videos of some of the songs featured during the practice.)

In the spirit of generosity (“dana”), the Zoom classes, recordings, and blog posts are freely given and freely received. If you are able to support these teachings, please do so as your heart moves you. (NOTE: You can donate even if you are “attending” a practice that is not designated as a “Common Ground Meditation Center” practice, or you can purchase class(es). Donations are tax deductible; class purchases are not necessarily deductible.)

“I do not pretend to understand the moral universe. The arc is a long one. My eye reaches but little ways. I cannot calculate the curve and complete the figure by experience of sight. I can divine it by conscience. And from what I see I am sure it bends toward justice.”

 

– quoted from an 1853 sermon by abolitionist and Unitarian minister Theodore Parker

 

Here’s last year’s philosophy-based post about Witold Pilecki and another amazing person who was all about justice!
