Where Did the Year Go, Part 2: Geo

RA friends,

Nine months! That’s how long it’s been since the last RhythmAsana retreat. Here’s the good news: It won’t be long until we can come together for our next RhythmAsana weekend at Breitenbush Hot Springs.

In her recent blog Lea did a great job of answering the question “Where did the year go?”  Now it’s my turn.

The opening sentence at RhythmAsana.com says “RhythmAsana is a unique and joyous blend of yoga, movement meditation, dance, and heart-opening music from all over the planet.” In some ways, that describes much of my year.

It’s been a joy and an honor to DJ for more than a dozen global music dances in Oregon, including an amazing Saturday night dance at the Breitenbush Summer Solstice Healing Gathering—their biggest event of the year. Here in Corvallis, I’ve worked with a team of movers and shakers to transform the venerable Planet Boogie into its 2019 incarnation as Dance Planet.

On the live music/yoga front, I’m a regular player in the New World Kirtan Band. I’ve also played some sweet gigs with Sid Rosen’s Guitar Masala. And I co-hosted an acoustic revival of the Corvallis Beatlesfest featuring a stellar collection of musicians playing Beatles songs to raise money for the Corvallis Folklore Society. But some of my most memorable musical moments happened when I was able to join Johanna for her Pacific Northwest gigs—Bend, Breitenbush, Corvallis, Eugene, Ashland, Seattle, and Beloved Festival.

Add to the mix travel, householder projects, community work, and family stuff and you have a pretty good answer to the “Where did the year go” question.

But that was then and this is now. Now is the time to get ready for RhythmAsana: Moving Into Deep Joy at Breitenbush Hot Springs January 25–27. Call Breitenbush, 541-854-3320 to reserve a spot or two and score an early-bird discount. Let’s move into deep joy together!
