#reverb15 got away from me the past few days. I’ve kind of lost my motivation and momentum. Nevertheless, here are the prompts for the days I missed, as well as the rest of the Yoga Freedom #reverb15 writing prompts until Winter Solstice on the 21st of the month. Enjoy!
December 11 – Where have you discovered community in 2015?
In the middle of the year (June 1st), we moved from Pana to Pasajcap. This little stretch of forested mountainside is located in the lake basin between San Marcos La Laguna and Tzununá.
This is where I co-led my first weekend yoga retreat, over five years ago. This is where I met my life partner. This is where our daughter was conceived. This is where I live, and although I’ve become somewhat of a hermit compared to my old dinner-party-throwing days, I am slowly, mindfully cultivating a community of trusted friends here in our new neighborhood.
Community is the key to cooperation, happiness, support and unity.
