As I have shared in other posts, Yamas are the outer ethical codes and foundations of the eight limbs, made up of five Yamas: Ahimsa, Satya, Asteya, Brahmacharya, & Aparigraha.
♥️ Satya ♥️
(Truth / Deep Listening)
As we practice satya...
✨we open ourselves up to holding space for others to share their truth, with us, through deep listening.
✨we honour truth.
✨we are open ourselves up to growing, learning &, most importantly, unlearning.
May we all come as we are and meet ourselves exactly as we are, in this moment: mind-body-spirit-heart.
In our Trauma-Informed Yoga Psychology School, we cultivate a safer space, meant to support us in the practice of satya. As we sit with one another, in Satya, we learn from each other. We deepen our inner knowing and recognize we are more similar than different.
Who can you practice satya with?
For me, I practice deep listening in my work as a psychologist and yoga teacher.
I practice sharing my truth with my partner, my closest friends, and counselling.
Would love to hear your thoughts & reflections below!
