A note from Jenni and Malia:
With the holiday seasons almost here, we have been reflecting on how life is moving at a speed that we would define as "too fast" - largely because we fill every moment with work, teaching, meetings, events, workshops, family, friends, life - you get the picture. And while all of these things fill us up and are truly blessings, "It is time to protect and guard our personal time," as Jenni profoundly shared. In saying "yes" to everything, we often are left feeling depleted - energetically, physically, emotionally and spiritually. And we realize that this could progressively intensify, especially with the holidays coming.
As teachers, we encourage the importance of stillness, self-care, reflection, creating space, relaxation, healthy boundaries, and rest, but we have not been doing these things for ourselves. The challenge is not in creating space for this in our schedule. The challenge lies in guarding the time we have in our schedule for self-love. Does this resonate with you? Are you the last person you create time for? Do you easily give up all of your free time to others at the expense of your own well being?
So, in order to show up powerfully for others, we are committing to show up for ourselves by devoting one hour of each day this holiday season to creating and guarding our "Personal Sanctuary." And we invite you to join us!
