Word Play "soulverdeyogart"

Soulverde, means green soul, in Portuguese it translates as "I am green" ( eu sou verde). Green is the color affiliated with the heart chakra; green also represents nature. The combination of yoga and art, sharing the "a" in the blogs name could be pronuced like "yogurt". Yogurt in Sanskrit is dadhi. The symoblism of the giving of bowls of yogurt is often found in Buddhist thangka scroll paintings in which yogurt represents ultimate awareness. The slow process of making yogurt a fermenting of milk is an appropriate metaphor for the transformation of spirit. By applying the principles of yoga, creation of art, writing and Buddhism the potential for overcoming negative behavior (karma) and the clear nature of mind can be revealed. To achieve this spiritual knowledge an offering of yogurt is made. Namaste.

Photos from the Yoga & Art Workshop, Bellingham, WA

The weekend of June 11 and 12, 2011, truly a celebration of my birthday (which was actually the following weekend), at The Old Foundry, near the Bellingham Saturday Market, a group of ten joined to practice yoga and create japa malas and mandalas. The photos attest to the diversity of the group and the uniqueness of each individual. Fun, insight and exploration were enjoyed by all. Namaste! Thank you to Ruby for helping and to my Mom! Many, many, Blessings!
