There it is…Home Sweet Home! More to fix here and there but it feels unbelievably good to have a space of my own. There are also two unfinished rooms for visitors, so friends and family, come on down to Uganda! 🙂
I received this email recently and thought it was appropriate for this post and the last . . . it’s not about finishing the house, but enjoying the whole, sometimes laborious process.
Sending love from my sanctuary to yours!
. . .
If you really want
to live in bliss,
then become devotional
in every action.
. . .
Whatever you are doing,
devote your attention
to that happening
instead of focusing
on the outcome.
. . .
Say you are walking
to get a glass of water:
Usually, the mind is focused
on the water, on quenching the thirst.
The walking itself is forgotten;
it is almost regarded as an obstacle.
. . .
In this, the mind will distract itself
during the walking thinking about
other things to just bypass the walking altogether.
Steph is an American yoga teacher, originally from Colorado, who lives with her family in the Swedish countryside. She believes that yoga is for our whole being and helps foster self-understanding, deeper relationships, and a more compassionate worldview. She creates mindful gatherings, classes, and retreats to learn and grow through movement, breath, and connection.
Before settling in Sweden and becoming a mother, traveling was her greatest teacher. She spent the better half of a decade traveling the world, which included a few years of managing a non-profit in rural Uganda. After the pregnancy and birth of her daughter, Steph discovered her passion for motherhood as a pathway to inner growth, community, and creativity. She enjoys exploring and sharing the intersection between holistic traditions like yoga and meditation with modern living.
