The Eight-fold Path

The Eight-fold Path

The Eight-fold Path

i’ve been frequenting a yoga studio in Portland that’s pretty spectacular. for the most part, the teachers talk about alignment and correct posture. one teacher named Sarah, however, brings spiritual growth into each class. she speaks at the beginning of each class and throughout about a specific idea or teaching. it’s exciting and inspirational.

recently, Sarah began teaching the Buddha’s eight-fold path. this can be an in-depth investigation into how we live our lives. are we fashioning our reactions and behavior based on our own needs and wants, or are we embracing the bigger picture?

Sarahs delve into the eight-fold path brought it all back. it was here where i began my spiritual journey. Buddhism was my initiation into spirit and “right living.” i hadn’t understood before this encounter that there could be an end to my suffering and the suffering i caused others. what a relief.

it’s helpful to look at each of the spokes on the wheel of the eight-fold path for right living and spiritual light and brightness. it’s a beautiful practice that encompasses all aspects of ones life. i hope you’ll be transformed as i was.
