Monica DiGiovanni | Art and Yoga
Dear first name,

Mondays join me for a weekly outdoor morning yoga drop-in class. I chose the name “New View Morning Yoga” because of the amazing view we get to rest eyes on during practice. And because collectively and individually we need to take a seat of power within the most compassionate, creative visions we can muster for a new way of being. We must summons great strength within ourselves to get through this. My personal intention for these times is to make my heart a refuge. Not only for myself but for anyone I come in contact with. The practice of creating a refuge as well as creating creative mental space for new visions will be woven into the threads of the class along with moment designed to help you feel physically strong and whole.
 
Go easy and peacefully as you can. Be gentle with those around you. Persevere. This is an amazing time to put yoga practice and wisdom into action in your day-to-day life. I look forward to supporting each other through uplifting, inspiring practice during these unpredictable, fast moving times.

Warmly with love, Monica

 
"May all beings be seen, held kindly, and loved.
May we all one day surrender to the weight of being healed.”

A new art website...
Right before all the chaos ensued I had planned to be in touch to launch my new website:

www.monicadigiovanni.com

There is where you'll now find my art. I've been focused diligently on painting the last year or so. For my efforts I had my first art show scheduled in Burlington, VT and was accepted to participate in the "Artists' Week" residency at the Vermont Studio Center. All of that has been either postponed or cancelled for now. In the mean time I would greatly appreciate it if you would check out my website along with a few new paintings!

As we all seek new sources of income I'm going to self-promote a little more than usual. All of the images in all of my newsletters are taken by me, including the images used in my fliers. If you see something you like, let me know as I'd be happy to make a print for you.

Dharma practice:

Different practices resonate with different people at different times. Here are a few I've been able to embrace wholeheartedly to support decisions that are ethical and at the same time ambitious. The Four Vows are recited as a drone to approach insurmountable odds and impossible tasks with courage and tenacity. The Ten Grave Precepts can be as uplifting and inspiring as they can serious. They are a compass for life.
The Four Buddhist Vows (New York Zen Center)

Sentient beings are numberless; I vow to save them.
Delusions are inexhaustible; I vow to put an end to them.
The Dharmas are boundless; I vow to master them.
The Buddha Way is unattainable; I vow to attain it.
 
The Ten Grave Precepts
1. Affirm life; do not kill.
2. Be giving; do not steal.
3. Honor the body; do not misuse sexuality.
4. Manifest truth; do not lie.
5. Proceed clearly; do not cloud the mind.
6. See the perfection; do not speak of others.
7. Realize self and other as one; do not elevate the self and blame others.
8. Be generous; do not be withholding.
9. Actualize harmony; do not be angry.
10. Experience the intimacy of things; do not defile the three treasures.
