February Book of the Month


It’s February. I am grateful for a new month, and a fresh start. Things have been feeling unstable and uncertain in the world lately. The yoga classes and sessions I teach have been full of people looking to cultivate a little more calm, peace, and grounding in their lives. I find myself returning to my mat each day so I can practice staying fully present and compassionate even in situations that are upsetting and unsettling. My reading time has mostly consisted of fiction, in an attempt to escape. I do, however, find myself flipping through one of my trusty favorites a lot lately, so I am choosing it as the book for February. I invite you to join me in reading, or re-reading, When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice for Difficult Times by Pema Chödrön. (As you can see, my copy is well loved – there are even little teeth marks in the upper righthand corner from my cat.)


About DjunaPassman

I practice and teach yoga. I attempt to carry what I learn on my mat and through my students into the real world. Sometimes I am successful and sometimes I am grumpy and less than kind. I started life as a dancer, moved on to choreographing, worked as a dance/movement therapist, then realized the wonders of a regular yoga practice. I am a realist - whether the glass is half full or half empty you are bound to spill its contents if you are wearing white (this is why I wear black so often). I am not an expert on yoga, life, or anything else for that matter. I do my best to keep my mind and my heart open every day (some days are better than others).
