A poem by Danna Faulds. In yoga, we study a concept called non-duality. Literally, it means “not two”. We use meditation to recognize and accept that we as individuals and the world at large is not good/bad, happy/sad, sick/healthy, relaxed/stressed… WE ARE ALL, ALL OF THAT. Being at peace with this concept is a practice. The practice of yoga.
