Heart and Soul Yoga Retreat Amsterdam The Four Agreements

Each year I choose 1 ‪#‎YogaRetreat‬ where our intention is to focus the week upon ‪#‎TheFourAgreements‬ by don Miguel Ruiz. In 2016 it will be my ‪#‎HeartandSoul‬ retreat in ‪#‎Amsterdam‬ July 3-9 with my soul brother Reinier Voorwinde founder of Drishti Journeys. I share them here with you as a sweet reminder for 2016.

And the photo is of me at sunrise taken a couple weeks ago in Baja at Prana del Mar. To me it exemplifies how I’m approaching this new year: allowing it to unfold gently without pushing it to go faster. I welcome the changing colors. 

1. Be Impeccable with your Word: Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the Word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your Word in the direction of truth and love.

2. Don’t Take Anything Personally:Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

3. Don’t Make Assumptions:Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

4. Always Do Your Best:Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.
