As we all do from time to time in our lives, I took a bit of a “heart hit” recently and was navigating the emotional difficulties that come with a personal setback. While I’ve always considered myself to be a resilient human being, I am also aware of the value of sadness and how we can learn from it—and ultimately land on the other side of it—without losing the luster and joy of the only emotion that remains our true north star: Love. Many have quoted Robert Frost during such a time and his words ring true with even more depth when we find ourselves in a precarious emotional state: “The only way out is through.” In other words, to fully let go, we must fully feel. In doing so, we avoid the emotional traps that can easily become a fixed part of our personal makeup, running the gamut from chronic numbness to deep-seated anger. Rather, we “return to love” as Marianne Williamson so aptly puts it. So, how can we “be better, not bitter?” We need tools. Luckily, they usually come in the form of friends, family and other heart salves, such as meditation and movement. I am a very fortunate man and that truth is not lost on me. I was once again enlivened by the beautifully supportive friends and family members that embraced my vulnerable state and (without trying to fix it), simply made me feel seen, accepted and loved. It would be naïve and presumptuous of me to say that I know the extent of your pains and the heartaches you have felt. I do not. But whatever adversity you find yourself encountering throughout your life (and the degrees of such hardship will certainly vary for each one of us) be sure to realize that you are surrounded by others who can empathize in some way or another. You are supported—most humans have that capacity, and when shown, you may discover that your pain is simply part of an awakening that can only be seen as a gift. Such an awakening is my wish for all of us. See you on your mat. Paul McQuillan Owner/Director
