Poetry feeds my soul. I read a lot of The Radiance Sutras in my classes. It opens us to the softness inside us, straight to our luminous essence. There are opportunities to meditate and connect spiritually in each moment. One doesn’t have to sit with the eyes closed to find God. My students appreciate the freedom I offer in my classes and teachings. I feel like there is no other way than to be inclusive, encouraging each person to shine in their unique way I’d rather take someone on a deep journey than just instruct postures. Erika Faith Calig
