Hello Tantra Sacred Loving Friends,
Welcome to December, the month of the shortest day of the year. The nights have been growing longer allowing more time for practice and integration. I have been enjoying the practice of Loving Myself Awake before the sun rises. This is a daily practice of awakening through breath, touch, sound, awareness and gratitude. When I awaken in the morning, before jumping up, I take a few deep breaths and touch my body, all parts, using several modalities of touch. Tapping, stroking, kneading, scratching, tickling, pressing, lightly, deeply, intensely–whichever feels right in the moment. I notice the sensations and find gratitude for all that I feel. Usually, the sun begins to rise and the skies change color, I am in that place I love–serenity. Sometimes thoughts come in. The other day when I was rubbing my tummy, I thought “what if I use those cinnamon rolls from Thanksgiving and make French Toast?” Then I gently brought my awareness back into my body, completing the awakening process. I love this practice, it centers and prepares me for the day. By the way, I did make that French Toast and it was absolutely delicious.
There are some amazing workshops, pujas, activities and events this month. I hope to see you and share a loving hug in this holiday season.

Tantra Sacred Loving Presents Awaken Your Senses
with Avinash and Lisa A. Rizzoli
December 12, 2016
Remember, if you would like to join us in a mantra practice, please arrive early we will begin chanting promptly at 6:50pm, Puja begins at 7:00pm. As we delve into the Tantrik teaching of yamas and niyamas, spiritual principles for us to contemplate, timeliness is of the essence. Let’s feel into these spiritual principles and look at how we can apply them in our lives by asking ourselves, “What would my life look like if I embodied this teaching and did my best to live this way?” These teachings are meant to support and actualize spiritual and worldly goals. I look forward to expanding, exploring and experiencing these concepts with you.
Please join us on Facebook on the Tantra Sacred Loving Workshop page for daily Loving Myself Awake meditations, Mudra Mondays and more Tantra information.
With loving gratitude and appreciation,
Lisa A. Rizzoli
