The end of the year is always a very sweet time of the year for many. While the holidays can drum up their own levels of stress, sitting back to reflect on what actually took place this year is a deeply humbling and powerful experience. Consider doing something different to launch 2018 with a New Year’s Eve intention setting and yoga practice, led by Nya. Now in its fourth year, Nya facilitates reflections through chakra meditation, journaling, intention setting, and a yoga practice to seal what one hopes to manifest in the new year. It is an invigorating way to end the current year and start anew. This event is held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on December 31, at Union Market.
Nya offers, “There is a quote that I have returned to over the years because it helps shape the depth of my refection. It is by Zora Neale-Hurson and it reads, ‘there are years that ask questions and years that answer.’ When I reflect, I ask myself, what type of year was this year?”
A very simple way to reflect on the year is by making a list of the top five things that happened to you. An example from Nya’s own list is “I got confirmed into the Episcopal Church this year.” She notes that once you have begun your list, it is helpful step away from it for a day or two and you will be surprised at how much more you recall from the year that is passing. As your list grows, you are taken through a valley of memories that help define whether your year asked questions or answered them.
