February is the month of love. This year we can feel an even stronger presence of love with Valentine's Day falling on the eve of Chinese New Year. Where can you find love? How do you foster loving relationships? Why is love so difficult?
Questions related to love are the most common questions we receive from you at Origin Yoga & Wellness. Zen Master Chang often tells this story for those seeking love and abundance in their life.
"When we see a beautiful butterfly, we chase after it with a net hoping to catch it and keep it for our own. But the more you chase after the butterfly obsessively, the more it runs away. If you instead focus your energy on blossoming into a magnificent flower, one day the beautiful butterfly will naturally come to land on your petals."
That's the thing with love and anything else you desire in life. Set your intentions for what you what but don't obsessively chase after it. Work on loving yourself first with joy and compassion. Blossom into the best version of yourself you can possibly be. One day, you will find what you're looking for is already yours.
We wish you a Happy Valentine's Day and Lunar New Year filled with love!

Experience the Real Taiwan
Just beyond the northern tip of Taiwan lies a Secret Beach where the water is crystal clear and smooth white rock formations line the shores. Once a military base, the entry point to the Secret Beach was securely hidden. Adding to the mystery, this majestic shoreline disappears and reappears throughout the season depending on the direction of the tides. We were lucky to find the Secret Beach on the very first attempt during our Signature Weekend Retreat and enjoyed a gorgeous sunset by this magical creation of nature. Can't wait to go back for a second visit!
