We love to inspire tea moments and this month want to focus on outer peace –the everyday peace of our world and how we can contribute to – outer peace.
Our Leading Light Dr. B Grace Bullock is a psychologist, research scientist, author, yoga educator and science journalist committed to outer peace.
What comes to mind for Grace? ‘Embodying the principle of my practice’, one of the biggest attributes of yoga is the practice of awareness – physical and emotional space and responding from a space of awareness, rather than reacting.
Outer peace – is an external manifest of internal peace, and reflects our own state of being.
To cultivate outer peace she recommends maintaining presence, focus and awareness and believes that outer peace is so important in our relationships – a key practice for infusing our world with outer peace.
With this we can keep our environment in alignment with our intentions. It’s great to have a simple environment – less clutter and distraction for the mind to remain calm.
For Grace, environment is key, she gathers a lot of peace from natural enviro – in her view, she loves to see the trees and takes on their influence of being grounded and stable – it’s the maple tree just standing there.
She gets her inspiration from natural enviro – her groundedness and connection emanate from being connected with something bigger then herself – like nature and the trees.
Grace recommends to stay grounded and do not let the winds of life blow you away – just sway with it and stay centred and grounded.
She also knows herself well and describes herself early in her yoga days as a ‘savasna dasher’ – she just wrote an article on this.
As savasna could be seen as just lying around, and not physical at all – and learning to lie still, or sit still, has been a huge struggle – not necessarily in her nature. This patient practice has helped to cultivate inner peace and from that ground she can truly bring outer peace to her every day relationships.
