Season’s Greetings and Happy New Year

January 1st is the western world’s collective day of beginning again. Whether we practice the annual tradition of sweeping our door steps (out with the old and in with the new), completing unfinished projects before the stroke of midnight on the 31st or setting new year’s intentions, the research is in: the support of others […]

Gratitude

Gratitude is not a passive response to something given to us, gratitude is being awake in the presence of everything that lives within and without us. Gratitude is not something that is shown after the event, it is the deep, a priori state of attention that shows we understand and are equal to the gifted […]

The Backpack Project

Perhaps like you, I have been sitting with how to evoke change in our world around us, as well as the world at large. Two rather “yogic” phrases have been on my mind lately: “meeting the moment,” and “meeting people where they are.” As I listen to many of you, I’ve realized that so many […]
