The Real You

On the permanent research of My real I and Your real YOU, one thing not to miss was the Lisbon Yogafestival at the Jazzy Dance Studios this November.
Thanks to João Silva, the organizer of Festival Zen & Lisbon Yoga Festival I had the chance to zoom in with my camera and document a yoga session of Karo Tak – the only Jivamukti Teacher in Portugal.
Come to join her class every Monday & Wednesday at 19h30 in the Mantra Yoga Lounge here in Lisbon.

Just so beautiful for your soul !

As a big fan of Alan Watts I can just recommend to read or listen to his entire lectures…
He influenced my mind in a such positive way !

THE REAL YOU

Yogafestival1

“When you’re ready to wake up, you’re going to wake up, …

Yogafestival35 

…and if you’re not ready you’re going to stay pretending that you’re just a ‘poor little me.’

Yogafestival38

And since you’re all here and engaged in this sort of inquiry and listening to this sort of lecture, …

Yogafestival37

…I assume you’re all in the process of waking up.

Or else you’re teasing yourselves with some kind of flirtation with waking up which you’re not serious about.

Yogafestival26

But I assume that maybe you are not serious, but sincere – that you are ready to wake up.

So then, when you’re in the way of waking up, and finding out who you really are,…

Yogafestival10

…what you do is what the whole universe is doing at the place you call here and now. 

Yogafestival8

You are something that the whole universe is doing in the same way that a wave is something that the whole ocean is doing…

Yogafestival9

The real you is not a puppet which life pushes around;…

Yogafestival5

…the real, deep down you is the whole universe.” – Alan Watts

“To me everything in life is about action, connection and creation before anything I am always an activist, a creator, a connector first, bringing people together, connecting the dots, connecting different worlds with each other, with that concept I have worked in many different set ups all over the world, creating work as an actor & performing artist, creating food as a vegan cook, creating an active platform as an activist and  as a Certified Jivamukti Yoga teacher. I strive to create debate, educate and facilitate within everything I do and in that I always recognize creative risk & a sense of adventure as the heart of my practice, no matter what. ” – Karo Tak
