“WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE PART OF THE MSYI & YIW COMMUNITY?”

Did You Know?

  • We are currently in a global mental health crisis and loneliness epidemic.

  • Lacking connection increases the risk for premature death to levels comparable to smoking 15 cigarettes a day (according to a recent study by the U.S. Surgeon General)?

  • The report, titled "Our Epidemic of Loneliness and Isolation” finds that before the recent pandemic, about half of U.S. adults reported experiencing measurable levels of loneliness.

  • It warns the physical consequences of poor connection is devastating. IE 👇


In the past few decades, we've lived through a dramatic pace of change: 👇

  • Moved away from family of origin

  • Changed jobs more often

  • Live with technology:  profoundly changed how we interact with each other (people report feeling lonely even when they’re are people around them)


FEELING LONELY / ALONE

Relates to the quality of connections.


This is precisely why I was called to build a community (MSYI & YIW).


There is a huge hole in online learnings & digital landscape ... we need more connections, NOT more information!


There is a reason yoga traditionally passed down a lineage of deep, long-term, reciprocal relationships between student and teacher. 


Instead of passive, self-study courses, I realized that I wanted to build a long-lasting, tight-knit community.


PURPOSE of this COMMUNITY: 👇

  • come together in times of need (like now)

  • hold frequent ‘circles’:  meditation & chanting in a group setting

  • participate in monthly rituals

  • receive real-time feedback & reflections

  • stay inspired

  • build true intimacy & friendships (that last a lifetime)!!


Yoga recognizes the NEED for a community of like-minded Souls (SATSANG) who commune on a regular basis (cornerstone of health & elevated consciousness).


We NEED

Colleague’s, Family, & Friends to hold us accountable: 👇

  • To ask tough questions

  • To Listen

  • To See Us

  • To Pray / Meditate for Us

  • To be Witnessed

  • To be Held in Unconditional Love & Positive Regard


No matter where you fall on the spectrum of loneliness, deep connections, friendships, mentorship, community …. we need to be aware of 👇


FACTS:

  • This is a time of accelerated change

  • Online communities need to be bridged with real-life, in-person connections to help co-regulate our nervous systems

  • Setting clear boundaries with social media & intentionally monitoring our use of electronics is a mental (& physical) health issue


PRESENTLY:

We need to create our 'new normal’ based on the needs of our:

  • body

  • family

  • community

  • heart & soul

  • emotions


KEY:

Allow the lesson of the past few years to guide our present life choices & decisions (& not let these ‘hard’ lessons go to waste).


CAUTION 👇

Don’t get amnesia about everything we’ve learned.


BIGGEST LESSONS I LEARNED ARE:

  • Real life relationships are the most important

  • At the end of the day, what really matters in life are loving & genuine connections


We are emerging into a new phase of deeper connections & empowerment as humans.

  • We are prioritizing our inner voices, needs and desires of our Soul.

  • We are connecting from vulnerability, transparency and authenticity to forge REAL intimacy.


CHALLENGE:

  • Don’t let this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to redesign and rethink the way you relate and live based on the truth of your body and heart pass by.


INQUIRIES 🧐
