The Welcoming Ground

I lay myself down
on the welcoming
ground, the earth's
spine becoming mine.
Peace seeps into
heavy limbs and
slows my heartbeat
to the pace of
nature. I take refuge
in the quiet, and let
my burdens go,
one by one, until
the earth and I
both float in the
same vast and
holy silence.

~ Danna Faulds ~

At the end of Yoga class, we mindfully move into Shavasana, corpse pose. It is a time to take refuge in the quiet; to let burdens go and to float in the vast, holy silence. It is the most important pose in Yoga practice. This is culmination of all the other poses. With the earth welcoming the body, there is deep healing, profound nourishing, and serene balancing.
