I'm writing a book!
As I look for a label that others can identify with, I always return to describing my overarching self as a storyteller. I am my imagination. I am a creator. I need to express my connections in this life. In short, I am here right now in this space to write a book. The working title is "All That We See: Stories From My Backyard". It's coming through as my experiences with memories and dreams and my reason for being here on this earth as Lianna. Yoga is a big contributor. I know that sharing yoga as a white woman is no small thing and there are issues with that. I'm working with this and have been for as long as I have known about yoga. I continue to ask questions and challenge and check myself. I also know that this book I want to write is not about teaching yoga. I will relate experiences I've had in my own yoga practice, though. I have to give credit to yoga because that is where credit is due. I will offer guidance through what I have witnessed firsthand. I will have spent much time with all that I am bringing forward. I think the practice of time is one of the most important things we can give to our experiences. I will be connecting memories, present day experiences, and contemplations as a way to make sense of what to do next for whoever needs it. The book is much needed for me. It is my hope that it will guide us all to pay attention to those moments and thoughts and ideas that sync up, that connect, and that inform one another. And I will do my best to make it all as tangible as possible. I will use what I have learned as a way that you can also learn. I want your very being to be the source that it already is. As you read, you might start to pay attention to the places within you that hold all the answers. And if you feel that you're already on this path of paying attention, then maybe I can help with a different kind of clarity. Everyone's experiences, no matter what similarities we find, are almost always unique when we start to see the details.
