Happy Hannukah from Common Ground!
Sara Fruman compiled this list of 8 yogic lessons that Hannukah teaches us. From the article:
You are never powerless.
In the story of Hanukkah, a family (the Maccabees) defeated the much larger and much stronger Greek army. This is one of the miracles of Hanukkah, the fact that the impossible was possible and that the Jewish people were not powerless. In life, it’s so easy to feel powerless, small and insignificant. It’s easy to believe that we cannot make a change. However by just coming to our yoga mats, we are changing the energy of the entire world. Every being is powerful. Every being is light.
Other lessons include:
– Life is hard, be resilient
– Find a balance between vulnerability and strength
– It’s important to give and recieve
– Choose vision over fear
– Always search for light in the darkest times
– Miracles happen

Happy Hanukkah to all!
