Holding On and Letting Go
In this episode Rachel begins by discussing her newly launched Yoga Girl Community - a safe space for people to open their hearts online. From receiving so many deep and personal messages through emails and social media, she knew she needed to find a space to connect us all in a deeper and more tangible way. With the Yoga Girl Community comes the tradition of Sharing Sunday. Speaking deeper on this and sharing herself, Rachel opens up about her desires to be a participant again - to be unknown and invisible. To step away from things to do deep, emotional work anonymously. To be a regular person and take regular vacations. Diving further, Rachel notices a striking duality that is present in her life - she wants to let go of everything and step away, but at the same time she has a need to control all around her. Noticing that this pattern is related to the environment she grew up in, she discusses the idea that in order to change something about ourselves, we need to go all the way back to the root of what caused it and start our work from there. What patterns do you carry with you from childhood? Which ones serve you and what can you let go of? Join Rachel as she works through this herself and comes away with the notion that while it may be hard to trust - it is safe to let go.
