When the Student is Ready

The rest of that sentence is: "the teacher will come."

Recently I have been wanting to move deeper into the philosophy of yoga and the meditation practice. Last weekend I went to the Yoga Journal Conference in Hollywood, Florida and took a one-day teacher intensive with Aadil Palkhivala. It was definitely a case of the teacher coming when the student was ready - his message and approach were just what I was looking for.

It's not a very good picture, but that's Aadil in the center, after the workshop was over

The keynote speaker at the conference was Marianne Williamson. Another case of the teacher arriving on schedule - she is brilliant and speaks so eloquently and compassionately about what is going on in the U.S. today. I bought her most recent book, The Law of Divine Compensation and had her sign it. She is a very special person - she took the time to speak with every person in line and to let them have a picture taken with her. Here's mine:


Me on the left, Marianne on the right

Anyway, I was just thinking how cool it was that I was looking for new teachers to take me in new directions and they showed up right on time. Does this ever happen to you?
