I&rsquo;m your host Mark Randall, it&rsquo;s lovely to have the opportunity to have a conversation with you about the heart of Connection to Self, Others and &lsquo;All That Is.&rdquo;&nbsp; Just by way of intro, would you mind giving an introduction of yourself, please?</p> <p><img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-2059" src="https://www.empoweredchange.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/Jill-Tree-Pose-Episode-39-200x300.jpg" alt="" width="200" height="300" srcset="https://www.empoweredchange.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/Jill-Tree-Pose-Episode-39-200x300.jpg 200w, https://www.empoweredchange.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/Jill-Tree-Pose-Episode-39.jpg 213w" sizes="(max-width: 200px) 100vw, 200px">Jill [0:16] Sure.&nbsp; Thanks for having me, Mark. Yes, my name is Jill Harris.&nbsp; I&rsquo;m a yoga teacher, a <a href="http://yogabijam.com.au/pages/about/">yoga teacher trainer &amp; my Yoga Studio is called Yogabijam</a>. I am&nbsp;studying to be a yoga therapist at the moment.&nbsp; As well as the other hats of my life, which is a mother and you know, so forth.</p> <p>Mark [0:32] How many children do you have?</p> <p>Jill [0:33] I have two boys.</p> <p>Mark [0:35] Oh great. How old?</p> <p>Jill [0:37] 12 and 8 years old.&nbsp; Fun times.</p> <h2><strong>Connections through Yoga Therapy</strong></h2> <p>Mark [0:42] Can you tell me a little bit about yoga and yoga therapy. What does that entail?</p> <p>Jill [0:47] So, yoga therapy is a way of looking at the person in a sort of holistic sense.&nbsp; So it&rsquo;s not just about yoga as per movement.&nbsp; It&rsquo;s more about understanding what&rsquo;s going on in the body, as well as what&rsquo;s going on in the mind, and the emotions and the whole picture.&nbsp; Of the person and then applying a practice for that person that can ultimately reduce suffering, which is what Yoga is about.&nbsp; It is the idea of reducing suffering.&nbsp; It&rsquo;s another modality, I guess, for people who are not just having problems within the physical body, but may be problems emotionally and in other layers of their system.</p> <p>Mark [1:28] When people are experiencing those sorts of problems, does that impact on their connection to themselves?</p> <p>Jill [1:34] Yeah, sure does. Yes, absolutely.</p> <p>Mark [1:37] What do you notice?&nbsp; What do you experience?</p> <h2><strong>Connecting to our Suffering &ldquo;Dukhum&rdquo;</strong></h2> <p>Jill [1:40] Well, everybody will present a little bit differently, I suppose.&nbsp; Generally, there&rsquo;s this great sense of suffering in some way.&nbsp; Yoga talks very much about suffering, as being like, they call it <strong>&ldquo;dukhum&rdquo;</strong> <em>which is essentially it means sort of darkness.</em>&nbsp; So it&rsquo;s almost like a closing of the heart space if you want to, you know, look at that in those terms.&nbsp; So people generally find that there&rsquo;s a restriction of some sort.&nbsp; It might not be physical, it might be a feeling of restriction.&nbsp; This can manifest in different ways.&nbsp; Generally, most people will come to yoga therapy, because they&rsquo;re suffering in some way and they want to reduce that suffering.</p> <hr /><p><em>Yoga talks very much about suffering, as being like, they call it &ldquo;dukhum&rdquo; which is essentially it means sort of darkness.</em><br /><a href='https://twitter.com/intent/tweet?url=https://www.empoweredchange.com.au/podcast/connection-through-heart-of-yoga-episode-39-my-conversation-with-jill-harris/&#038;text=Yoga%20talks%20very%20much%20about%20suffering%2C%20as%20being%20like%2C%20they%20call%20it%20%E2%80%9Cdukhum%E2%80%9D%20which%20is%20essentially%20it%20means%20sort%20of%20darkness.&#038;via=empowerchange11&#0

In every moment of our lives. It&rsquo;s just the most beautiful thing that I realized.</p> <h2><strong>Life meets us in our Evolution</strong></h2> <p>It&rsquo;s challenging as well, that life meets us in our evolution and if we don&rsquo;t meet it, we end up in breakdown and violence.&nbsp; So I&rsquo;m really keen on supporting people to, meet the evolutionary challenges, the challenges to grow.&nbsp; It&rsquo;s kind of, you know, for me the way my reading of nature is, is you grow, you die.&nbsp;&nbsp; We undergo little deaths all the time when we compromise, I&rsquo;m not saying something to somebody, not speaking my truth.&nbsp; I&rsquo;m killing off parts of myself, or a breakdown of a relationship, and I shut somebody out.&nbsp;&nbsp; We&rsquo;re all in those kinds of little dying moments, right throughout our lives, unless we&rsquo;re prepared to really engage with each of those. To see what the invitation is, you know, that there&rsquo;s an actual invitation in there from life itself to become more.</p> <h2><strong>Connecting through our ego death</strong></h2> <p>The path of that becoming is often through our own ego death.&nbsp; Yes, so that&rsquo;s, that&rsquo;s the sorts of things I&rsquo;m interested in curious about, and, now that I&rsquo;m involved also in another project

One of the delights, I guess, of, in this case, putting my hand up to coordinate this gathering.</p> <p>Fortunately, 3 others, my partner and two very close friends, said you we&rsquo;ll support you.&nbsp; So it&rsquo;s a four-person gathering or four-person facilitation.&nbsp;&nbsp; One of the delights is the fact that I do reconnect with people who have really been part of my hearts journey.&nbsp;&nbsp; I feel really moved for that.&nbsp; So from a selfish perspective, or self-interest, this, even though there&rsquo;s been quite a lot of work in organizing this, now that we&rsquo;re here, and it&rsquo;s all happening, this is a pretty good mob!&nbsp; Our hearts are really important places for us to go to, and to be aware of.</p> <p>Mark [3:26] Is the Heart an important place to connect?</p> <h2><strong>Heart Not Connected ~ Not connect to me</strong></h2> <p>Jan [3:32]

It&rsquo;s easy or it&rsquo;s such a temptation to just work a little bit longer and work a little bit harder.&nbsp;&nbsp; That doesn&rsquo;t connect me with myself, that takes me away from myself.</p> <h2><strong>Disconnection Experience</strong></h2> <p>Mark [2:45] Do you disconnect from yourself a little bit in that?</p> <p>Deb [2:48] Yeah, I do.&nbsp; Yeah, I really do.&nbsp; Sometimes to get through that list, or to just finish something before the end of the day, you know.&nbsp; I&rsquo;ve got an <a href="http://delos-inc.com/"><em>internal driver</em></a> that has been hard at times to keep quiet, to quieten her.
