Let's get real. Sometimes you just need a little help.
Cultivating self-awareness is the first step to finding clarity, balance, contentment and internal resilience in a complicated world. Over my many years as a yoga teacher and therapist, I’ve seen first hand and personally experienced how a lack of self-awareness gets in the way of navigating life’s ups and downs.
Self-awareness is the ability to see, understand and accept our beliefs, habits and behavior without judgment. When this skill is actively employed, we see our reality as it is, not hidden behind a veil of wishful thinking or denial. Then we can consciously choose to make changes, remain unchanged with full awareness of the consequences or find acceptance and peace of mind if change is not possible. This is the process of enlightening up. When we cultivate self-awareness we learn how to celebrate life’s ups with balance and contentment and manage the downs with clarity and internal resilience. For most of us, it will take time to develop this skill and use it wisely.
