I send you all blessings of health and prayers of peace as we experience this wave of uncertainty in our communities and the world at large. I encourage you to continue or start a daily practice of Tai Chi and/or Qigong. Just performing Lifting the Sky once or twice a day will be very powerful.
Here is my teacher Pragata, performing Lifting the Sky into Wu Wei, and Pushing Mountains into Wu Wei: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l58BkTLrH5M

This fun and loving couple said their I do's and became husband and wife on Oct. 27, 2018, at Fat Apple Farms in Columbus, WI. Cory and Pamela shared this very special day with their children and created a new family with the strong and ever-lasting bonds of love. Congratulations to you both!
This couple's love and strength is a blessing to themselves and the people that make up their beautiful family and friends. May the sun shine brightly upon them all the days of their life together as husband and wife. Melissa and Todd were married at the Wisconsin State Capital Rotunda on Oct. 20, 2018. Thank you to them both for allowing me to officiate their ceremony and be apart of their family story.
There was plenty of laughter and joy surrounding this lovely couple on their wedding day. Josh and Lisa were married at Emily's Ten Oaks Ranch, on a chilly, but beautiful day surrounded by an intimate group of loved ones.
Music brought them together, and it will be music that sees them through this new phase of their lives as husband and wife. Meagan and Bryan made their dream come true of being married outside, in this beautiful venue, The Hub at Cedar Creek, in Cedarburg, WI, surrounded by their loved ones. Congratulations, you two song birds! 10/6/18 ~ Sarah Harrison, Wedding Officiant for Koru Ceremony

I have spent time going within during this time of transition of seasons and haven’t posted much... on purpose. With every passing day comes change. With every passing day comes opportunity to heal and grow towards the light. As the seasons change to darkness, I retreat within to find the light.
My meditation practice has shifted to more stretching and strength training with Yoga, but still supported with my Qigong/Tai Chi for energy flow.
This morning, I sat in stillness and listened to a guided meditation from Insight Timer. I share my journal entry with you as inspiration to find your light within.
Spent the Meditation in my base Chakras. Felt first and second opening. Felt stagnation, anxiety in my third. Filled my self with love and light and imagined the dark surrounding my Self Chakra breaking off, melting away. After the meditation I still feel a tightness in my stomach, but I am holding optimism of knowing and with knowing comes choice and with choice of love comes healing.
Blessings to all of you.
