You know that feeling when somebody doesn’t like you and you don’t know why, or that sense that no matter what you do, something is simply not going to go your way………it’s just not fun.

We all want to make things work out: relationships, health, projects, school, life, but the reality is that things will not always work out, or be perfect and accommodating. We can even make tough situations more frustrating when we try to fix them and make them better.

There are some moments when taking a break to pause and not act leads us to the path of acceptance and understanding. That sense of letting go is the beginning of the end of suffering.

When we stop fighting with our need to be comfortable and happy, when we lessen our expectations, we are making room for resilience and acceptance, those things can lead us to peace.

And yes, it is a very hard thing to do, it is a practice that builds a deeper understanding of who we are and how we, as humans, operate. 

A regular meditation practice is a tool that can shine a light on our over extended expectations and lead us to a path of acceptance and a place of inner peace. Take Five creates a space and plenty of opportunity to sit down or lay down and wrestle with expectations and the journey towards acceptance.

We look forward to seeing you in the studio in a space without judgments, with open hearts, and compassion.
