November Focus of the Month:

Gratitude & Seated Twists

by Prema Teacher Maria Cutrona

I was 20 years old when my mother passed away. I was just beginning to return to the nest so to speak , needing the grounding and encouragement of my family, particularly my mother’s support , as I began to navigate my life outside of home. 

I was completely bereft, raw and devastated . I carried this sadness with me every moment. I withdrew, angry at what life had denied me. The guidance of my mother at a vulnerable time in my life.
