This week in all my classes I have been working with the theme of vulnerability as the space of most authentic power! We have been exploring through neck, shoulder, and chest (heart opening) poses on the mat. Then I found this image on the internet and thought it reflects the idea perfectly!
Across different times and cultures there have been so many myths where the hero exposes himself in a way that is completely vulnerable, but ultimately shows his true power. He is completely unafraid because has recognized that part of himself that can never be destroyed. Realizing that this infinite self is the only true self, he no longer needs to protect himself, and opens his heart to all of life.
May we all find our own connection to the highest self, the true self, that is infinite in its power, and open our hearts bravely to the world.
