About this blog

After 30 years of personal growth and lots of teaching yoga and workshops, I feel I’m still growing and learning and yet I also have achieved some degree of wisdom.  This blog is my effort to share some of the wisdom while making it clear that there’s always more to learn.  I’m tired of books about spiritual life that imply — if only by the lack of self-revelation and struggle — that the author is “done”.  There’s no such thing as done and very few are so successful at spiritual life that they are beyond the struggles of personality.  It’s a journey that covers mind, body and spirit so topics will include health and emotional issues as well as spirit.  This is me, having a real journey.

For my alter egos you can check out my other blogs.  Scribblings from the Bluegrass has a bit of everything — writing, film, recipes, etc.  If you’ve landed here because I liked one of your Weekly Photo Challenge posts, that’s because this blog is the identity with which I travel, but my WPC posts are on the Scribblings blog…  And my far out alter ego who plays Wizard101 has Wizard101 Basics for Beginners.

Namaste, Leigh

P.S. A while ago I changed things up and this took the title of my other blog and the old blog has a new name but the domain matches this title.  So if you look at both and feel puzzled, well, it’s puzzling…  But I’m really happy with the new titles and new looks and the blog that’s now Scribblings from the Bluegrass has a bit more focus.  I’m having fun with them.

  1. Hello, Leigh. Thank you for liking my blog post Original Jogger. It led me to your blog, and I find that we are totally on the same page. I have an autoimmune disorder which I am using energy medicine to push back with some success so far. I am also a yogi and a writer, and am working on a collection of essays about my spiritual journey. I would love to know more about you. I will put a link to your blog on mine.

    • Hi Carol, nice to meet you. I haven’t gotten to the point of figuring out how to put links on (at least not successfully) but I’ll link to you too. I’m in a rush at the moment but I’ll look forward to further communication.

  2. Hi Leigh,

    I appreciate you dropping by my blog today, and I love your “philosophy” on spirituality. By claiming that one person is “more” spiritual or more “done” than another is to perpetuate the belief that we’re different. I’ll look forward to following your journey which is, as they say, the point. Not the destination.

  3. Leigh, Brilliant post, short and sweet as they say. And indeed, in the spiritual quest your never there because the ‘there’ is forever moving. The deeper you go the deeper it gets.
    I’m adding a link to your blog on mine.

  5. Congratulations Leigh on your nomination and acceptance of the Hope Unites Globally HUG Award. Your acceptance of the award has acknowledged who you are and what you do. The HUG Award was not created as a “fluff” award, just something pretty to paste on your blog. It was created as a “tough” award to challenge people to think about boundaries that are detrimental to nurturing hope and respecting the dignity of some of those who need it the most. I am very happy that you feel honored to receive the award. Blessings, Connie

    • I’ve been travelling and even though I did some blogging I’m behind. I’m preparing a post about several awards and when I looked at this one I wound up confused as it says you’ve nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award but the link you gave is to the Kreative Blogger and that is the one where my blog shows up in a list. Just want to clarify, did you mean to nominate me for the Kreativ Blogger? Either way, thank you very much! I really appreciate it.

      • Oh my gosh yogaleigh, I too was behind on awards and was trying to do several in one day. It’s been awhile since I’ve last posted awards so my memory escapes me. Honestly either one would fit you beautifully! Most likely it was for the Versatile Blogger. So sorry for the confusion!

  8. Hello my friend,
    I like your writing up here. I think if you keep doing what you’re doing now, you will have good future. So keep it up my friend! 🙂
    I have a joyful ride in your blog, and now I’d like to invite you to visit mine. Thank you and have a wonderful day, my friend! 🙂

  9. Thanks for following my blog, Leigh, and greetings from another lapsed lawyer. I graduated in Melbourne, but left the profession soon after to be an actor, then acting left me and I became a writer instead.

    I’ll try to keep posting things to hold your interest and all the best with your blog too – I know how important the encouragement is!

    • I’m sure your blog will keep me interested. I’m getting so I’d rather travel vicariously and not have to go through security or sit in a tiny seat with my knees aching….

  10. I nominated your blog for One Lovely Blog award! Please take a look at http://www.peacewithmylife.com and respond in accordance with the award rules. You need to list 10 facts about yourself and “nominate” another 15-20 blogs. It is a great way for the blogging community to get to know each other and for me to say how much I enjoy your blog!

  14. Hello, Leigh, pleased to meet you. Sindy (@bluebutterfliesandme) made a friend suggestion on FB, and I thought I’d formally introduce myself here (as well as as meet you, here). This is where this particular thread of connection originated.

    I liked your note here about how you changed the blog title and as it compares to the domain name. I was a tiny bit confused, but then felt very much at home, as it presented no limitation to receiving your offerings here 🙂

    I also noted your recent blog post on Ho’opono’pono, it brought back pleasant memories of my time in Hawaii, as well as my time sitting with a particular Sangha for a number of years in PA (and perhaps a book), and/or all taken together, that led me to Dr. Hew Len’s work at the State Hospital. In 2011, I had a pretty magical experience on Kauai, and life’s been more-or-less a continuation of magic sprinkled with mundanity, or the other way around 🙂 ~k
