Swimming in the internet or is it the inner net?


     I have taken a big dive into the internet, into the world of websites and social media.  Only recently, I barely knew a thing about the mysterious land of places like LinkedIn and Facebook and Twitter and blogs and websites.  They dwelled in a far away place of unusual encounters and languages spoken that were unknown to me.  Those who have routinely spent time in these foreign lands were completely at ease wandering these roads.  I was not.  But here I am.

    Even so, wherever I may travel and whatever adventures that may be set in motion by taking such a plunge, there is a place that is ever present and is totally familiar.  There is forever a warm light beaming and a sign of welcome on the door , a soothing pot of soup on the stove, and a smiling presence in theis place I call the inner net.  It is the heart of our own being.  We can take off our shoes and rest and experience total ease.  It is “home.”  This special location never leaves us.  It is us, in the heart of the love that is our origin, our birthright, and that which we can share with all.

    “Wherever you go,there you are.” said Jon Kabat-Zinn.  True.  So true.

About deannemincer

Deanne Mincer has been a long time student of religious and spiritual studies. For many years, she was a practitioner of yoga and in the late 1980's she was drawn to share her enthusiasm by becoming a yoga teacher. Her certification, from the Himalayan Institute, was a comprehensive two year program including the study of anatomy, diet, nutrition, Ayurvedic medical practices, the methods of teaching hatha yoga, the science of breath and the study of raja (the royal path of yoga) philosophy. She has taught yoga, meditation, and spiritual classes for more than twenty years. In the mid 1990's she became a follower of Siddha Yoga where she experienced a spiritual awakening called shaktipat and her teachings took on a new and freshly informed understanding. As Deanne continued her studies, she learned level one in Reiki and also sutdied with Henry Grayson, Ph.D. where she refined her work with muscle testing and the complex of energy healing methods Dr. Grayson has developed for use with his patients. Dr. Grayson's work is illuminated in his books, Mindful Loving and Use Your Body to Heal Your Mind. Deanne teaches group and private classes in yoga as well as stress reduction programs and meditation in many forms (sitting, walking, whirling, meditation in action, and "sleeping" meditation called yoga nidra). She has developed methods of using yoga in treating those with life threatening diseases as in the programs she designed for Gilda's Club and Friends in Deed in New York City. She was a consulting producer on an alternative health program for CNBC's Alive and Wellness, and she has demonstrated yoga on network television. Deanne created the audio DC, Inner Light Yoga with Deanne Mincer and she has spoken widely and demonstrated meditation in many venues. Deanne is an enthusiastic and joyful teacher. She is known for the keen interest she takes in her students' physical and spiritual development. She stresses that each student should work at their own pace in a non-competitive and caring environment. You can read some of the comments her students have shared in the Tesimonials Section of this site. Her teaching is grounded in her own steadfast spiritual awareness - that each of us is a being of eternal light and love and that we can all come to knowing this truth for ourselves. She is eager to help guide you on this joyful path of body, mind, breath and spirit.
