Faith: Believe in Yourself! — July 2021

“Faith and prayer are […]

Creativity: Your Birthright! — June 2021

June’s theme is creativity and came about out of necessity! After fifteen months of relative isolation, I’m feeling called upon to up the ante as I redefine my work and life priorities moving forward. Possibilities abound, now that things are opening up and we move into summer, a season of expansion. We have to honor ourselves […]

Ahimsa: Do No Harm! — February 2021

Ahimsa (nonviolence)

By Mara Carrico © 2021

I’ve chosen ahimsa – nonviolence – as February’s theme. Usually I let my theme come to me spontaneously on the first day of each month, but the seed was planted far earlier this time, January 6th, to be exact. Need I say more? Not really, but I will…

Connectivity: Purpose & Meaning! — January 2021

Connectivity


Connectivity is my teaching theme for January. It goes hand-in-hand with my personal 2021 theme of Reconciliation. I enjoy and use the themes and “word of the month” suggested by my own teachers and mentors; they help me focus and reflect, and it’s my wish that my monthly themes do the same […]

Themes and Prayer April 2020

Endurance, the Yoga Lady® theme, Jackie Valdez’s monthly word, empathy, and wisdom from the Attunement Transformation, a group devoted to healing via energetic meditation – a perfect  “holy trinity” of connected themes for April! I’m impressed, but not wholly surprised at how serendipitously these fell into place. […]

Kindness is the Yoga Lady® theme for March. Jacqueline Valdez, Intuitive Counselor and my spiritual mentor, has offered respect as the “word of the month” for her group, Saints in Training.
