“Nine days and nine nights of blessings and happiness if you are celebrating Chaitra Navaratri!” “Ramadān Mubarak, Blessed Ramadān!” to anyone who is observing the holy month of Ramadān. Blessings to anyone observing Lent or Great Lent! Many blessings to all during this “Season for Non-violence” and all other seasons! 

“‘It’s like walking a trapeze. There are certain things I subscribe to. I believe in God, and that there is a will to good and beauty in the universe, rather than giving way to agnosticism or fatalism.

– R. S. Thomas quoted from the (21 July 1995) Church Times article by Martin Wroe, entitled “R. S. Thomas interview: ‘Waiting for the God to speak’”

Please join me today (Wednesday, March 29th) at 4:30 PM or 7:15 PM for a yoga practice on Zoom. Use the link from the “Class Schedules” calendar if you run into any problems checking into the class. You will need to register for the 7:15 PM class if you have not already done so. You can request an audio recording of this practice via a comment below or by emailing myra (at) ajoyfulpractice.com.

Wednesday’s playlist is available on YouTube and Spotify. [Look for “03292020 Moving Into Stillness”]

“You have to imagine
a waiting that is not impatient
because it is timeless.”

– quoted from the poem “Waiting” by R. S. Thomas (b. 03/29/1913)

“To a Young Poet” is not one of the seven featured “stillness” poems, but (as a little something extra  here’s a beautiful variation of it.)

Click here for the related 2019 Kiss My Asana post, which featured two poses to practice with the poems.
