leaving on a toot toot

Tomorrow I depart on a little study in Sydney for four days with internationally renowned yogini Janice Clarfield. Janice will be teaching the art of celebrating pregnancy and preparing for birth from a yogic perspective. "Prenatal Teacher Training for Conscious Birthing" as she says. Ironically, it will be the first time that I've left Ché since he was born. We have never spent a night apart. When I leave tomorrow morning on the toot toot (he understands that part of the story) I'll be giving Daniel and Ché the opportunity to have their own special time together, to create a special language that is only theirs. I'm full of gratitude for the opportunity to deepen my knowledge, to spend some time in the city and to know that my little one will be so very fine with his Dada. I've packed the essentials - photos, scarves, earrings and my yoga mat.

I'm off to OM and learn and create. Be back soon.


  1. Enjoy your trip. I'm sure you'll miss your little man like crazy. . . but return all refreshed and reinvigorated!

  2. Have a great trip and enjoy discovering the new woman you have become in the past few years. xo m.

  3. hey jodi! have a wonderful time. can´t wait to hear about it:)

  4. Enjoy your journey. I completely understand how you must feel leaving your babe. My little guy is almost 3 1/2 and I've never spent a night away from you. But leaving to do yoga is awesome. You will return having been so nourished and filled up that you will then be able to share those beautiful gifts with your family. Enjoy!

  5. Ah what a wonderful opportunity. EnjoyJodi! I too know the uncertainty of leaving behind those one's that seem to make up the pieces of our very hearts for the first time. It's a big step but sounds like it is all worth it.
    Can't wait to hear about it.
