Tonight I’m taping a show, Carol Alt’s “A Healthy You.”
I’m excited, but not nervous, because I see this as an opportunity to share yoga practices that have sustained me through some horrifically shitty times.
It’s not that I’m opposed to other kinds of therapy. Twelve-step recovery, of which I’m a huge fan, is basically talk therapy in a group setting. But there is a point where asking why isn’t useful, because there is no answer. There is no sufficiently good reason for shitty things that happen.
And yet life goes on, and so must we. It’s this physical practice that has enabled me to be comfortable enough in my body to explore stillness.
Stillness is where I have the opportunity to truly see my edge, and soften. Again and again.
Only then can I be truly free of the craving mind. Total transformation.
