Today I will do hatha yoga. I feel my body is ready for it. This winter I've had musclepain and being extremely tired. Blood tests show nothing. I'm in psychotherapy. Coming in contact with childhood traumas can cause physical effects like this, my therapist says. I've done hatha yoga several times during the past few months. The effect after just a light training has been extrem musclepain and dizziness lasting for days. Could be the many years of holding down anger.
Giving up patterns I've held for many years is quite a work. I'm afraid yet happy it's happening. I feel lost. I've held back anger really strong. It's like that emotion hasn't been in my vocabilary. I will see if some boxersice can help me come in contact with anger more. In some ways I think a part of me has chosen the practise of hatha yoga as a way of not letting anger come forth. I've released tensions and upheld the image of myself as a happy and "holy" person. I will not give up hatha yoga but I will add some more explosive practices.

I've spent much time working fulltime and studying part time. Soon it's Christmas vacation and will have a much needed rest being a lot outside, doing yoga and resting.
I'm studying cognitive behavioral therapy and I've had the opportunity to do a course in Mindfulness at work. I'm so grateful to be able to work with it.
Hatha yoga has been a bit uneven during the past 6 months since I've had to focus much on work and studies and also had a lot of colds. Now I feel strong again. Today I spent the afternoon amongst old old oaktrees in beautiful old nature. I'm balances again.

“Without the silence that follows the chants, you get only half the story. It's like the climax of a good story. The silence is there because it exists in the music. It just needs to be exposed and acknowledged. It's so easy to overlook the silence inside the music... and it's that which is healing us... if we allow it to be there. This is really one of the main reasons Miten and I sing - to bathe in Silence. It's our nourishment. It's what keeps us on the road. For me there is nothing more precious than having sung with an audience, ecstatic with bliss, and then entering the deep silence that the mantra brings... so deep, that with closed eyes you really feel there is 'nobody' there at all... all personalities dissolved for a tiny sacred moment.”
