I wrote this little ditty about my psychotherapy practice.  I think it can apply to other healing connections though, and it’s also indicative of how I hold the yoga teacher-student relationship:


Here is where we meet
Two hearts, two minds, one moment in time
And then again
And again
You take a step closer
I hold you not too close
This is the most
Fertile place for us to see
For us to be

Here we meet under the protection of intention
Encouraging your petals to open
And then falling to the earth
They disintegrate in the rich soil
Of the work we’ve done
Taking with them your fears and blocks and holdings-on

Two hearts, two minds, at times may dance to different drums
But in this space our aim is one
Your happiness and your freedom
