with Caroline Coggins

Lake Ainsworth, Lennox Head

Retreating to Lennox

 

When I leave my ordinary life and I can go to a place away, from my ordinary life/mind, put sandals my pilgrim feet, I know that I am blessed.

 

I learn best by doing, being in the company of others with sandalled feet, and taught by those who have walked the path. I love to study, learn and teach the subjects that have occupied my life. Doing what we love changes us and then we can see the reverberation of love out there too. We are all changed and charged by love.

 

This retreat at Lennox will be an immersion into living from this perspective, living from the inside out, and not as is the more usual way, from the outside in. I think of being in yoga as immersion, not just what happens on the mat, but the whole day, focused by the texture of becoming ourselves, and working with our chosen vocation.

 

The teacher’s day will focus on how to burrow down into our sources, followed by an evening asana class. We will charge and refresh the senses, while unplugging from what absorbs and distracts the focus of the mind. This is what we do over and over, remembering to unplug, from all that empties our living of joy.  

Caroline Coggins

 

Pilgrimage

If it is chariots or sandals,
I’ll take the sandals.
I like the high prow of the chariot,
The daredevil speed, the wind
A quick tune you can’t
Quite catch
But I want to go
A long way
And I want to follow
paths where wheels deadlock.
And I don’t want always
To be among gear and horses,
Blood, foam dust. I’d like
To wean myself from their strange allure.
I’ll chance
The pilgrim sandals.

– Denise Levertov
