    August 10, 2010 by James, Category: Reflection & Articles

    “The image I had of what teaching might look like and the idea I had of what commitment meant were getting in the way… Working with a daily mantra practice I found the space to challenge the habitual mind of ‘I can’t.'”

    James Ward reflects on beginning as a Radha Yoga teacher in England.

    Swami Radhananda“From each action, we learn. We just can’t stay inactive, because the world is always changing, our mind is always changing.” In this Satsang talk, Swami Radhananda speaks about the mind, the nature of change and the power of choice. She asks us to observe when we talk ourselves out of taking the action that is needed. Finally as the doer, we have the power to undo the past, present and future. “Awareness is the key.”

We can bring these forward, into the day, into our work, into our interactions so that we learn to enter a situation with calmness and compassion.” In this Satsang talk, Swami Radhananda encourages us to find that place of balance within ourselves and with the world around us. “We can all do it, we have that potential.”
