Yoga and Alzheimer’s: Learning to Be With What Is
This article was posted on a Facebook site that I follow….a real honest look at how we (as individuals and a society) numb ourselves in an attempt to avoid pain. Unfortunately, we can’t selectively numb ourselves, or our experience. Our pain and our losses are parts of us that cannot be ignored…and in that respect, when we work to ignore or change the inner experience of our lives, we cease to honour ourselves as we are.
This article explores the difference between running from our pain, covering it with work and life, and hardness in the heart, and leaning INTO our pain instead of away from it.
Paradoxically, only by leaning INTO our experiences can we find our footing to stand.
Yoga brings you to this space to go deeper within yourself, and to be with whatever your experience is. Paradoxically, we learn to feel…and stay present with our pain and our loss. By feeling our pain, it moves through us, and we learn to live with everything life brings us.
