Spirit Junkie

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.
