Every so often I return home to San Francisco and practice yoga with one of the great men in my life: Darren Main. Since 2007 I’ve opened myself up to the friendship, grace and wisdom of his guidance & instruction.
At Grace Cathedral I integrate and pose to reconcile divided remnants from my past where I was an active LDS man trying to ‘cure’ my homosexuality. I light candles in the AIDS Interfaith Memorial Chapel for those ahead of me on the trail. I walk the labyrinth with a song in my heart that whispers: “It was meant to break open... Stay awake my heart!”
I’m grateful for innovative gay leaders working to bridge divides that currently impact the LGBTQ community.
If you’ve never taken the pilgrimage to practice yoga at Grace Cathedral on Tuesday nights…. I promise, you’ll never be the same.
