YAY for Gratitude! Plus Upcoming Workshops
By Hanna Maria
I am grateful for gratitude and what it brings into our lives and hearts! And this newsletter feels to me like it carries a lot of juicy gratitude – for students, for funding, for teachers, for beauty on earth, for inner silence and hollow bones, for good news, for connections, for giving gifts, ... Susannah and Ya’Acov’s new online teaching adventure is also called 21 gratitudes; love it. Gratitude brings joy, lightness, spaciousness, expansion and possibility.

Fellow Travellers
By Susannah Darling Khan

On Sunday I walked off the Eurostar into St Pancras. As usual, someone was playing the communal piano in front of the doors; sweet, wild music. more>
