Bring Bare Feet

Please remove your shoes.

There have been work boots and running shoes and fashionable sandals tromping and tracking through our studio for a year and a half now. The Center has not been much of a center. Sunday is the day we return to honoring. Sunday is the day we return to our practice.  Sunday is the day when we will remove our shoes again. 

I asked Deborah, our studio manager, if it was a challenge to get people to take their shoes off when they came into the center. She told me “Sometimes.  For the people who don’t know.”

Please remove your shoes.

For the ones who know this place, who know the legacy, who know what happens here, the request is never necessary. Who would NOT want to remove their shoes when they step into this place?

Bring bare feet to feel when you step on the exact spot where Ganga stepped in the year you were born, or in the year when your mother was born. Bring bare feet to feel the cool firm wood in the big room press back against your weight just where it pressed back against the weight of Maty’s foot. Bring bare feet to press that perfect creak out of that board in the exact spot where Frank’s bare feet pressed that same creak out of that same board 40 years ago. Bring bare feet to feel the wood hold you exactly as it held Lisa’s bare feet while she danced and swirled and wandered among the mats.  Bring bare feet to press into your mat exactly where a thousand other feet have pressed into a thousand other mats

On Sunday we get to remove our shoes again. On Sunday we get to honor again. On Sunday we get to walk in the steps of our teachers again. On Sunday we get to reconsecrated our center.  Again.

Bring bare feet.
