As yogis, we are pretty good at giving—time, energy, donations—but most of us find it difficult to receive—a compliment, a gift, someone else offering to pay. In our Midwestern culture there is a greater emphasis on giving and many of us have internalized the idea that receiving is a far less noble act. Not only are we not so skilled at receiving, but we often confuse it with “taking.” We suspect receiving is selfish. The truth is that giving and receiving are two sides of the same coin: to truly give with a grateful heart, you must be open to receive.
One of the great things about yoga is that it offers us the opportunity to look inward and to examine the origins of our beliefs: Why do we find it hard to receive compliments? Why do we feel obligated to give? Join Catie for this progressive 3-part series that will explore the practice of receiving. This series will not only leave you inspired by the resources around and within you, but also capable of expressing your gratitude and love with the world around you.
