My Gratitude Triptych

Carlos Ayarosas and Debbie Rosas Stewart are amazing leaders on a unique and proprietary jourNia.  They have had the incredible opportunity in their precious lives to touch, transform and share healing with countless people around the world.  I am so grateful for their listening - listening to the voices of their bodies and of The Body's Way....and for choosing to step onto a path that wasn't known so that this great expression called Nia could enter the earthly realm.  I am filled with gratitude for Nia and all that Nia has given me and to thousands of people around the world - a path for self-discovery, self-healing and self-mastery.  I am filled with gratitude that I could know such great teachers as Debbie and Carlos who have supported me and mentored me in profound ways.

I'm so inspired by the amazing work of women around the world.  Women who are facing the loss of their cultures, their languages, their villages, their children, their forests, waters, clean air and still get up every day to care for children and the elderly.  Women who have to walk miles everyday to fetch water for their families, who are often subject to domestic violence, who are the most threatened in times of civil disobedience and still work for social justice and speak out for human rights. Women who tend their homes, nurture their children, tell their stories, care for the lands, women whose voices are often the last to be heard, and still, they take risks every day as leaders for the environment and for what they believe is right.  I'm so grateful for their heroism everyday.  I'm so grateful to be an ally and supportive of other women who have dedicated their lives to being international allies with women around the world making sure that women's voices are heard http://www.worldpulse.com and that women are supported to create thriving communities http://www.womensearthalliance.org

I am especially inspired by my friend and sister Palma Vizzoni who has dedicated her life to being a steward of indigenous wisdom and the preciousness of the human story.  I invited her to share her gifts and create a moment for us as a community to share gratitude.  The sensation of gratitude is something that so deeply moves the body.  It is a sensation felt in every language and by every heart.  It is a great vibration that we can experience as a human being.  This is an opportunity to express our gratitude in a unique way as a community for our bodies and for all of the amazing experiences that our bodies afford us physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.  Palma has taught me what the Dagara people taught her, that only the healing I bring to myself is the healing that I can bring to others.  This is a great wisom and I thank Palma for sharing this with me.
