Happy Thanksgivukkah: The Yoga of Cleaning, Sorting and Cooking

posted by Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg on November 27, 2013 |

ThanksgivukkahHappy Thanksgivukkah: The Yoga of Cleaning, Sorting and Cooking I spent a good part of the last few days scrubbing cabinets, amazed at how much sticky muck lines the tops and sides when you don’t think to clean them more than every decade. Then I started in on reorganizing the fallen piles of pots and pans, the giant bowl of never-used cookie cutters, and the menagerie of parts for food

What Love Looks Like

posted by Charlotte Bell on November 13, 2013 |

what love looks likeWhat Love Looks Like This morning as I sat in meditation a stray thought popped into my head seemingly out of nowhere, as most thoughts do. I momentarily wondered what I would do if I went outside to feed my four beautiful feral cats and found that one of them was sick, injured or worse. Would I go to work anyway? How would I deal with it? I dutifully dismissed

Share Your Gifts with the World

posted by Crystal Griffiths on September 10, 2013 |

share your giftsShare Your Gifts with the World Ask for what you want. Think big and ask big. In an infinite world even the largest request is small. The key is don’t ask from your ego; ask from your heart. The ego asks because it wants to be superior, made larger and more significant. The heart asks because it wishes to share, heal and inspire the world. When you have a large

Yoga Dog – The Yoga of Living with a Big, Naughty Dog

posted by Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg on April 23, 2013 |

yoga dogYoga Dog – The Yoga of Living with a Big, Naughty Dog I love our dog Shay, who arrived at our front door a little over a year ago with a look on his face that clearly communicated, “You are my people.” At the same time, this dog drives me crazy. The crash that wakes me up turns out to be the compost bucket, its contents once against strewn across

Boston Marathon: Remembering Our Buddha Nature

posted by Charlotte Bell on April 16, 2013 |

boston marathonBoston Marathon:  Remembering Our Buddha Nature When I heard the news of the Boston Marathon bombing on NPR yesterday, like most of us, I was horrified and saddened. I still can’t wrap my mind around why anyone would want to kill and maim innocent people who were there simply to celebrate a fun, venerated community event. I immediately thought of my friend and fellow musician, Cory Maxfield, a flutist I’ve

Let Go: Have Faith in Your Path

posted by Crystal Griffiths on March 20, 2013 |

faithChoose Faith There are super frustrating times on The Path. Instead of fighting against frustrating times with more frustration, anger and resentment, take a higher road today. Remember, a delay is not a denial. The world’s timing is always perfect and if something isn’t quite manifesting yet, there is a reason. So today, instead of choosing to be angry, hurt or just plain ol’ pissed off, take a big deep

Three Gratitudes for Thanksgiving

posted by Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg on November 27, 2012 |

gratitudesThree Gratitudes for Thanksgiving Many of my friends as well as numerous facebook pals keep gratitude journals, noting three things to be grateful for each day.

Breath: Every life starts with the first gulp of air and ends with the last gasp. How we land in ourselves,

Gratitude: We All Built That

posted by Charlotte Bell on November 21, 2012 |

gratitudeIn honor of the spirit of Thanksgiving, we are republishing this blog about gratitude that we ran in September. Enjoy! Gratitude:  We All Built That September 6th, 1984 is etched deep in my cells. I remember exactly where I was sitting (in my kitchen), and what I was reading (The Vegetarian Epicure) when the phone rang. Back then there was no caller ID, but when I picked up the phone,

Live your True Calling

posted by Crystal Griffiths on October 24, 2012 |

imagesLive Your True Calling Life ends not when you die, but when you stop believing in your true calling. Your true calling isn’t something your friends, parents or lovers want you to become. Your true calling isn’t living vicariously through someone else. And most certainly your true calling isn’t working just to “make a living” and “get by.” Your true calling is that soft voice within you urging to be

One Percent More: Embracing Progress Over Perfection

posted by Crystal Griffiths on October 4, 2012 |

one percent moreOne Percent More One of my favorite things about life is that we all get a chance, once a day, to start over. The morning comes bearing gifts of renewal, redemption and a chance to start all over again. The fresh dew on the spring leaves glimmers as the sun is just starting to poke her head out from the horizon and imbue each morning with the promise of revival.
