"Wether one believes in a religion or not, and whether one believes in rebirth or not, there isn't anyone who doesn't appreciate kindness and compassion." H.H. Dalai Lama
Thanks for the great quote, His Holiness. Kindness and compassion from others feels like you're appreciated. I wonder how much compassion and kindness we can cultivate for ourselves. I'm grateful to have received publicity on Chicago news channels recently and despite the accolades others give me, I still judge myself critically. As this warm Spring season fosters growth in my garden, I pinky promise that I'll also nurture compassion and kindness for myself. Can you pinky swear the same? Let's check in next month. Ready? Set? Love ourselves!
In addition to cultivating self appreciation, what else are you up to? I'm producing theater projects, having another knee surgery (it's OK!), and experimenting with magical socks and insoles. All I can say is that they've reduced my leg swelling and knee pain significantly. See below for details and please, right this second, give yourself a HUGE hug because you're great.
PS: The non-profit theater festival I'm coordinating seeks donations of goody bags, swag to fill them with, raffle prizes like wine, gift certificates, and more! Please consider making a donation in kind. Get creative! Thank you so much.
I teach a monthly, one hour Restorative Yoga Nidra class at both Nature Yoga Sanctuary and at yogaview studios in Chicago. My teaching schedule is here. Be my guest at yogaview! Simply respond to this email.
I curate and produce this history making series of Asian American play readings in Chicago at Goodman, Steppenwolf, and Victory Gardens. We're packing the houses! See here tp learn about these fun, important readings.
I know, I know. Miracle socks and insoles? What's nutty Mia up to, now? All I can say is that after I tore my knee meniscus last week, I wore a brace and my leg swole up and hurt like heck despite the pain killing anti-inflamatory pills. I wore these insoles and the swelling completely disappeared. Also, I don't need the meds. I feel more prepared for my knee surgery with these socks and insoles! Read more here. I'll keep reporting. Let's check this out together.
