On Episode 64 of The Art of Aging Mindfully, I share a valuable lesson I learned in my late 20's from the legendary acting teacher Thurman E. Scott.

Thurman taught me that it was natural, when integrating new knowledge into our daily lives, to make two steps forward (progress, deeper awareness) but to be aware that one step backwards (regression) can be a normal part of the personal growth experience.

In this light, progress is slow, steady, and incremental. We must embrace ourselves lovingly when we fall down, get back up, and get right back into the saddle. 

This is the main reason master Patanjali, emphasizes the notion of continuous, uninterrupted practice.
