Using the mantra introduced to me by one of my teachers, Rod Stryker.
“There is a light, that lights the whole world.It radiates the truth.Boundless will.Skill in action.And is the source of all knowledge.”
The use of this mantra and the focus of the preamble and practice is for you to feel that light within, to use the light to fuel, heal and inspire you as you reconnect with more meaning in your practice, relationships and life. May you be moved by the true nature of the JOY of being alive!
