One response to “Meet Sally Adnams Jones, our new Centre Director”

  1. Holger Schramm

    Dear Sally

    May I share this letter with you which I sent to Kalpana and Sharada.
    I feel blessed that I had the opportunity to spent extended time at the Centre and taking the YTT in 2012 – which attuned my life further with the spirit of Yoga.

    For too long I haven’t been in touch with the Centre, even so its vibrancy lives in my heart. Last year I made it briefly over and what a joy it was to see you Sharada walking up for Kirtan when I arrived.

    Just read that Janaki left her physical body behind – – – will take a while for me to take this in… I dearly loved her presence, spirit and support…
    Too easily we push aside the transitory nature of our existence in this world. Even if we ‘know’ about it – if it meets our heart it creates unthought vibrations.

    How strange that with this note I wanted to point out a documentary film to you: “Final Pose”. My dear yoga teacher from Hawaii Cathy Louise Broda (purpleyoga.org) sent me the link. In this film Myra Lani Fisher, a yoga instructor diagnosed with a terminal cancer, decides to openly discuss her dying.

    Though of sharing this film with all of you, even so I don’t know if this would be appropriate during the annual yoga retreat celebration. I would have loved so much to join myself but I won’t be able to arrange it. I am still residing on Cortes Island, the place I moved to after leaving the Centre. My intention is to return back to Salt Spring and hope an opportunity will arise in the near future.

    If you like to see this film you can view it via this link – listed at the end of that page: http://finalposethefilm.com

    My heartfelt blessings are with all of you
    Namaste

    Holger

    Death is not extinguishing the light,
    it is only putting out the lamp
    because the dawn has come.

    as well as:
    Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time
    like dew on the tip of a leaf.
