I think that before I began the class, I expected to send away the part of me that I didn’t like. And now that I’ve been through the class, I can’t!
It’s different now. I recently had the sense of being forced to be with a part I didn’t like. But now I can also feel the grace of this not-liked part.
I can feel many things now. Before it was just a matter of “eating too much” and “eating less” – just black and white. Now there is a much fuller range of experience.
And things in my life have changed very naturally, without effort – like practicing yoga, not drinking wine – I eat less sugary foods. It’s like I discovered they are not so attractive. Sugar foods and pizza and comfort foods. Many things changed in a natural way.
And there is more to my tangle as well...
I try to remember that it’s possible to take care of anything in me and I appreciate very much the way Jocelyn took care of this group.
