This Weekend At All That Matters, Gain Flexibility of Mind and Body with Ken Nelson and Lesli Lang


In Meditation, Go Deep In The Heart


 When Something Speaks To You, Do You Listen?


I often walk through the foyer beside the Lily Room at All That Matters and pause by the statue seated there.  She holds a sign which reads "in meditation, go deep in the heart."  After months of stopping and admiring and feeling deep sentiment in those seven words, I took a moment this morning to learn the author's intent behind them.


What I found was the short and poignant 8th chapter of The Tao Te Ching, written by Lao Tsu.  This book, written more than two thousand years ago, may be the most practical piece of moral advice I have ever seen in print.  It's been calling to me for some time, and I heard  it before, but finally just now listened.


As you begin a weekend that is ripe with possibility, remember to stop and listen to the messages being sent your way.  They just may hold the answers you have been desperately trying to find.  


Chapter 8 of Tao Te Ching 
by Lao Tsu
In dwelling, be close to the land.
In meditation, go deep in the heart.
In dealing with others, be gentle and kind.
In speech, be true.
In ruling, be just.
In business,be competent.
In action, watch the timing.
No fight: No blame.

This weekend, please join us as we gain flexibility in our minds and bodies, welcoming Kripalu's Ken Nelson and Lesli Lang for a series of workshops that include Yin Yoga and the Energy Body and the playful Thai for Two couples massage class.  They will also be hosting a free talk to answer questions about next month's Thai Massage intensive here at All That Matters.  As always, feel free to call on the goddesses at the front desk for any questions:  401-782-2126.
