And pull in this era and allow these. Trees to center me and ground me and stabilized me for the work day ahead. So. Wonderful to Kinda beat the day in get out and up. I hope that these walks don't interfere with my, messages? If you feel like it's just too much for me to be walking and talking then let me know Hey Keira sit still will you? I'm happy to do. Today. I WanNa talk to you about the word verge. You may know this already have maybe if you've been following me or read my book on the verge or maybe come to my yoga, Studio Verge Yoga, you may know the story but. I think it's an important one to. To remind you of. And remind me of and that is that the verge averge is a boundary. It's an edge. And it's on the edge. That we change and grow. Being out there on the verge now unfortunately. The expression on the vert. has is used so often in the negative on the verge of a nervous breakdown if you remember that movie. Women on the verge our. Country is on the verge of collapse right but I see it as different. I see it as being. On the edge of change where growth. And flourishing happens. So years ago many many years. My husband went down to the Ecuador to the Amazon and he spent a few weeks with an indigenous tribe. And he? When it came back he told me the story how they would be. Going down these tributaries in. in a canoe CA dugout tree bark right tree trunk. And they would stop. At certain places along the way and they've been pause there. And maybe have a snack or water, but it was at these places where the indigenous. People that he was with would pause to almost pray. And these places these edges of land where to trip tributaries came together is called a verge. and. It's they are on the verge. Research shows animal life and wildlife? Thrive. There on the edge on the boundary where ecosystems come together. There is flourishing. There is thriving. And when I heard that term many many years ago. I thought Oh, my Gosh, I wanNA live on verge. I WANNA live there. I want to know what it feels like to be on the edge of change. To. Be Right there at the precipice of growth in challenge. And so I. named. My Yoga Center in two thousand and four Verge Yoga. For that reason to create a space where people can flourish and thrive. Just. Like that place there on the Amazon. So so much of what I do. And why do it is to? Live right there on the edge. These morning messages for me or Averge 'cause I just go for it. Right. I don't know what's coming out of my mouth I have an idea direction and then then I just write it. Because I trust that right there on the edge. is where I'm going. I may fumble, but it's where growth is happening. So where are the verges in your life? Where do you live on the verge? How do you live on the verge? We can do it mentally. A mental practice, we can do it emotionally immolation ship. Right. Our relationships can be verges where we are called to step up to open up to accept to allow. Or to challenge and physically, of course, we can challenge ourselves physically right there on the verge. Not, blasting ourselves out of the water but just enough so that we start to feel the tremble we start to feel that aliveness and it's they're on the verge my friend where we feel most alive. And this is what I based my whole book on its honestly what I've based my whole professional life on and it's where I live personally I wanna live on the verge and I wanna live on the verge with others. It's it's really part of the makeup of my my new mental wellness business. Where we partners? Are Living Together. In In the space where we are growing tremendously.
