May the Songs open and nourish you, may the Art inspire you, may the Martial Arts allow you to quiet your mind and experience the connective gifts of your body.
Every aspect of our multi-faceted humanness-- body, mind, heart, spirit-- needs to move (sing! breathe! dance! pray! wrestle!) in order to thrive. Movement is not only soul-awakening medicine for our individual selves, but our journey of its creative embodiment also supports global healing.
I feel so honoured to finally present this collection of our gathered wisdom and reflections to the greater community. I'm hopeful this book will bring some joy and hope to folks who need a little extra light right now. This book is a collection of go-to practices, stories and perspectives for "resetting" during hardship, put together from a series of interviews with more than forty contributors. The pages contain thoughtful insights from a diversity of voices about how to cultivate joy during challenging times. It's a call to spread light, to trade and plant seeds of hope, and to support each other in celebrating the elements in our lives that make us shine and thrive. Discover new ways to bring more joy into your own life, whether by trying something in this book, or by learning to recognize and activate what brings you joy.
