“The ability to maintain open, curious attention toward a body experience — to anchor ourselves in the present moment and separate the experience of sensation from the story our mind tells us about the sensation — is a tremendous and courageous life skill.”
Sarajoy Marsh, Hunger, Hope, and Healing: A Yoga Approach to Reclaiming Your Relationship to Your Body and Food

“On the other side of the pendulum from desire is discipline.”
Sarajoy Marsh, Hunger, Hope, and Healing: A Yoga Approach to Reclaiming Your Relationship to Your Body and Food

“Love is experienced as a felt sense of belonging, deep contentment, abiding ease, and joy. It is an overarching feeling of acceptance, inclusion, warm welcome, and understanding. In love, we experience profound tenderness and affection toward all that is and has been. Love is expressed as innate respect and care for our body, mind, and heart, and for our thoughts, actions, and relationships. Love allows us to feel what is precious and fleeting, without fear of the ephemeral nature of all things. It allows us to move fiercely toward truth, and it requires us to uphold integrity, passion, and fervency in the face of harm, or threat of shame. Love is the force through which any sense of inadequacy is burned away, allowing the blazing clarity of our deepest worth to shine forth.”
