Last night I started reading “Spirit Junkie” by Gabrielle Bernstein. I had the day off today, so I just finished it. A few thoughts – I’m not sure how I feel about “Gabby”. On one hand I love her positivity and want that for myself so badly. But on the other hand, she seems a little fake. Her stories didn’t go in deep enough for me. But it was a good 24 hour read and I’m glad I read it. I am still reading her book “May Cause Miracles”, so I haven’t totally written her off. But I do have to give her major credit for one thing - she has reintroduced me to something that I love.
It seems she’s into kundalini yoga. Over 10 years ago I was searching for anywhere to take a yoga class in Birmingham, AL. Back then it was hard to find. I did find a small kundalini yoga class in the back room of the Golden Temple, a small health foods store. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I expected downward dog and cobra, but ended up with chants and breath of fire. But I loved it from the start. But it was in an inconvenient location and a difficult schedule. So I stopped going. But I emailed them last night and they now have classes 4 nights a week and one of the same teachers teaches there. It’s still in the same location at the same time, but maybe I can make it at least one night a week. It’s what I need in my life right now. Something is missing and I think this can at least help fill it. Namaste :)
I also made a trip to the grocery store and didn’t get any beer. Progress.
