This is the year yoga teacher Gurpreet Sidhu has decided to leave her home in New Zealand to become a nomad, travelling the world, to be around great teachers and sages
“The wound is the place where light enters you”- Rumi.
We all go through life and its challenges in our own unique ways. On this journey some make a choice to be at mercy of their feelings while others go out to defeat that emotion.
I am sure you would agree from your personal experience with emotions that an emotion you feel is not only on an emotional level alone, it is felt on the physical body too.
Ancient cultures like yoga and Buddhism philosophise that emotions have energy. Most diseases in our body are an accumulation of these negative energies over time. Ancient scientific techniques lead us to ways of releasing these energies safely.
I feel making that first step towards change is always the hardest as the biggest obstruction is always the mind that constantly stops us with all sorts of excuses. We live like prisoners in our own mind. While we have a choice, “the choice to live at mercy or defeat that emotion”.
I have been a practitioner of yoga for the last 15 years, a teacher for five. What I state here is my own truth. Yoga has helped me find meaning in suffering.
I have been living in New Zealand for the past 17 years. This year however I have decided to leave my home to become a nomad for a while travelling around the world practicing more yoga, seeing more adventure, being around great teachers and sages and their good energy. I’ve searching for who I have yet not become. Today I have the power to change my story.
