A week and a half ago I returned from co-leading my first international yoga retreat in Tulum, Mexico with Anna Greenberg. It was an amazing week for all of us, that will reverberate out in our lives for sometime to come. Fresh fruit, walking meditation, birdsong and waves to wake us and meditate to, sutra study, twice-daily asana, and 12 new friends.
As a memento of that week is a quote from Rilke that I read one class. Not only is it worthy of being shared further, but to be contemplated again and again. I’ve always enjoyed the part of Alain de Botton‘s Atheism 2.0 TED Talk where he speaks about the value of repetition. Among many other enlightening points he makes.
