Seattle Yoga Arts November Newsletter
Gratitude
Marked by the holiday of Thanksgiving, November has become known as Gratitude Month here at SYA.  It's the time of year when we are officially reminded of just how much we have to be thankful for. We open our eyes and our hearts to the many mysterious gifts of the universe and are inspired to acknowledge and share our good fortune.

We're so excited to announce the return of our Pay Yoga Forward Program and our participation in the  Yoga Behind Bars Gratitude in Motion Campaign (see sidebar).  These two wonderful programs offer us all the opportunity to share the gift of yoga with others

And to help get you get your gratitude on,  we present these inspiration quotes.

"Some people have a wonderful capacity to appreciate again and again, freshly and naively, the basic goods of life, with awe, pleasure, wonder, and even ecstasy."  -  Abraham Maslow

"May your heart be an altar, from which the bright flame of unending thanksgiving ascends to heaven."  -  St. Mary Euphrasia P elletier

"No one is as capable of gratitude as one who has emerged from the kingdom of night." -  Elie Wiesel

"Do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life."  -  Robert Louis Stevenson

"May you experience each day as a sacred gift woven around the heart of wonder."  -  John O'Donohue

"Don't be concerned about being disloyal to your pain by being joyous."  -  Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan

"The universe is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper."  - Eden Phillpotts

"One of the sanest, surest and most generous joys of life comes from being happy over the good fortune of others."  -  Archibald Rutledge

"We would give anything for what we have."  -  Tony Hoagland

"I love to go to the market and see all the things I am happy without!"  -  Socrates

"By saying Grace, we release the divine sparks in our food."  -  Rabbi Herschel

"Gratitude is so close to the bone of life, pure and true, that it instantly stops the rational mind, and all its planning and plotting."  -  Regina Sara Ryan

Happy Thanksgiving!
