The Modern Yogi returns to Sedona to Teach Yoga and Guide the Hero’s Journey
I walked away from it all in July 2007, leaving a life once lived and embarking on an epic adventure or Hero’s Journey. I don’t talk about it much, nor associate with the past hardly at all these days. Looking back is a slippery slope and I have found there is nothing for me there. The memories, some I carry with me, but most I have let go. Even the 5 years I lived and learned in Sedona no longer haunt me, now merely experiences transcribed in the notebook of my life and shelved. I went to Sedona to become a yoga teacher and it is there that I gave up everything, the lessons hard won, in order to become what I have now become.
I am a Modern Yogi, a Shaman, an Author and Sage, a Photographer and Wildland Firefighter… but more importantly I dug deep into the darkness of my being and exposed the Truth. I found me, buried under it all, my true and authentic self… my Soul. The darkness still comes and goes but I know now who I really am and why I am here. And it is time. I left Sedona, somewhat lost, months ago and now another phase of the Journey is coming to completion. I am ready and Creator has asked me to return. I am to teach yoga classes in Sedona, guide sacred journeys on the land and expand my communication to a larger audience. From my healing has come my life purpose and I am told to share my story and help others to heal. And so it is…Yoga for a better life.
The doorways, once closed to me have opened and I find myself in a flurry of divine activity, calmly seated in the center. I have found God to be everywhere and in all things. This intelligent and vital force has not let me down and never will. As I await the next instructions, I have filled my time with the last. Purposefully carrying out my part in the big picture, sometimes not knowing how it will fit, I find myself in reverence of it all. This past week, on February 29, Co-Director and Co-Founder, Leah Adams and I announced the First Annual Sedona Yoga Festival, culminating years of study, growth and spiritual development on both of our parts. We are ready…
Hollywood has been good to me, albeit I was told to go deeper than I ever had, but I have come through, God never leaving my side. It has not gone unnoticed and I will be departing here with new tools, contacts and connections that will further the mission and expand the consciousness and communication more far-reaching than before. I am grateful and blessed, as many have touched my heart and I theirs. There has been much expansion for my Soul family and together we will continue to bring consciousness to humanity.
I know Sedona’s warm and inviting embrace awaits and I will arrive from the Journey anew with gifts and blessings to share. We will all rise up together and shine as the Sedona Yoga Community and Sedona Yoga Festival unite in cause and celebration to share with the world an event filled with Light and Love; the essence of Sedona herself will shine forth and ring the bells of freedom for all of humankind.
Aho Mitakuye Oyasin….All my relations. I honor you in this circle of life with me today. I am grateful for this opportunity to acknowledge you in my prayer….
