Hello, my name is MJ Delekta. I welcome you to my blog, ways of being. I live on Martha’s Vineyard, where my studio, sacred circle of yoga is located. This healing space has been a center for body mind spirit classes, workshops, private sessions and spiritual retreats. My passion is to promote healthy lifestyles. Yoga, qi-gong, fluid movement, five rhythms, chanting and toning are a few of the many healing modalities offered. Many clients have found that healthy lifestyle consultations and healing arts sessions provide ways of being that suit your individual needs in any given moment of living a full life.
The roots of my passions have been planted deep in this lifetime. I have a soul story to tell that begins when I came into this world 62 years ago. My early life was steeped in dysfunctional family drama. My pain body was established at a young age. It was the fifties and I was born into american suburbia. The culture of the neighborhood I grew up in was of the donna reed, my three son’s and betty crocker mentality.
As a little girl I would escape to the woods and the comfort of nature. While playing there the trees, rocks and wildlife illuminated my mind. My heart opened to the great mystery as love and kindness poured into my being. I felt at one with all of creation and believe that is when the seeds were planted for my journey to awaken fully to my passions.
Yoga came into my life when I was nineteen years old at the local YMCA. Richard Hittleman was my first TV guru. In 1985, Kripalu center became my spiritual home. I eventually found my way to India and the ancient vedic lands of bhakti and karma yoga.
My intention in blogging is to tell stories of lessons learned from the young old wise souls I’ve been honored to meet. To be a resource for innovative healing ideas and experiences using the world wide web.
I look forward to hearing from you and opening a conversation around all that is shared here.
It brings me great joy to be with you on this journey of living in the present moment. I continue to learn and grow with what each day presents me. There is much to inquire into and contemplate. Let the conversation begin and subscribe to my blog. I invite you to share what you have discovered. Make a comment, let the conversation begin, and promise to offer a deep listening. Together we can co-create a new earth that embraces different ways of being. May the healing begin for ourselves and the universe!
