This Thanksgiving season I would like to extend my deepest appreciation and gratitude to you - my fellow courageous explorer of feeling good and doing good.
I know it takes courage to walk through the doors at All That Matters and consciously (or not) say, "Hi, I want to change. I want to feel better. I want to know my vitality and share it with world." That's what we're doing when we care for ourselves in a true and deep way, when we make any movement toward health. That is yoga - what the Baghavad Gita calls "skillfulness in action." Whether your yoga is doing Reiki or getting massages to balance a hectic week or practicing on the yoga mat, change and growth are inevitable.
One of our favorite yogis, Albert Einstein, said: "Nothing happens until something moves." Whatever your approach, as All That Matters nears the milestone of our 20th anniversary in 2015, I thank you for moving with me here in our haven on Main Street. And I give thanks for the many pods and tribes and communities that have been born and thrive here - groups of meditators, Reiki healers, yoga teachers, foot reflexologists, healthcare providers, volunteers, staff, and all the friends who walk in our doors.
With open-hearted thanks for the wisdom and science of yoga, and for the community of Wakefield, Rhode Island where we practice,
Wishing you peace and joy,
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."
- Margaret Mead
