Friends, I have been away. I meant to blog before I left, to be organised and neat and tidy in packing my suitcase, and all that. Instead, a great wave came and pulled me out to the shores of the Long White Cloud, and before I knew it, there I was again. Fresh, crisp air, sunshine, clouds and rain, and the winds.
I spent the first 5 days at a yoga course. It was a mix of theory and practice, specifically on yoga therapy for anxiety, depression, and addictions. So many people I know, myself as well, have struggled with at least one of these issues. I aim to teach yoga soon with a focus on its therapeutic applications, hence my interest in this course. The course was presented by Ganesh Mohan of Svastha Yoga, and I would highly recommend it.
Afterwards I spent a few days catching up with friends, relaxing, reading and sight-seeing around Auckland.
I thought I’d summarise my trip by drawing three cards from the Morgan Greer tarot, aided by a fortune cookie:
Finally, I shall leave you with a delectable moment the day before my departure. Exhausted after a day of walking around inhaling the crisp autumn air, I decided to sit down with a cup of tea and carrot cake, watch the people pass by, and just savour the moment.
