Depression and feelings of isolation is common these days. It doesn’t seem enough just to do yoga. Regular engagement with a community that elevates and nourishes makes a big difference. It gives you a chance to serve and be served, which is incredibly fulfilling, and what the Spirit needs. To experience regularly the feeling that others sincerely care about you, want to hear what’s going on with you, and ask about you when you go MIA. It reminds you that you are not alone in the crazy things that your thoughts cause you to believe about you. And when you see that others experience similar thoughts, and you see that they are amazing people, then your capacity to elevate your own sense of self becomes easier. Together, you forklift each other into wholeness, and with wholeness comes a greater sense of peace and wellness.
