Week one: Saucha - Purity
"Saucha invites us to purify our bodies, our thoughts, and our words."
This week notice where your body is sluggish. Begin to purify yourself through diet and exercise (and the space around you if that is making you sluggish). Notice how the sluggishness becomes lighter as you purify. Notice the difference between the external process of cleansing and the internal process of purifying.

"Patanjali's detachment beckons you to cultivate the willingness to surrender as you go along, right here and now, but not because you despair or are uninterested. On the contrary, detachment requires total engagement. When you allow yourself to see things as they really are, then - and only then - can you love yourself and others without hidden expectations. Detachment is the greatest act of love.
