Whoever You Are, No Matter How Lonely

posted by Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg on May 30, 2012 |

lonelyWhoever You Are, No Matter How Lonely The title of this post may be familiar to many of you as a line from Mary Oliver’s poem, “Wild Geese,” in which she writes, “Whoever you are, no matter how lonely/ the world offers itself to your imagination.” I’ve been thinking of these lines, particularly the first one because of what it says about loneliness.

posted by Charlotte Bell on May 23, 2012 |

no more homeless petsNo More Homeless Pets’ TNR Program Supports Community Cats One spring day back in 1994, I was in my back yard inspecting my lettuce seedlings when I saw six pairs of tiny eyes peering out at me. A cat had deposited her six kittens in my planter box. They looked like any other impossibly cute kittens, but there was a difference. These bristled and stiffened when they saw me, and

Forgiveness: Let Go of the Past, Turn to Your Dreams

posted by Crystal Griffiths on May 22, 2012 |

You see, one of the biggest misconceptions about forgiveness is that by forgiving someone we somehow make right what they did. We believe that if we forgive, then we condone their actions. Nothing could be further from the truth. You see, your dreams and

Cultivating Everyday Karma

posted by Charlotte Bell on May 17, 2012 |

everyday karmaEveryday Karma in My Garden A few years ago, I dug up the sod in my front yard and parking strip to replace it with drought tolerant plants. While my yard is quite small, six years of drought—and even more years of minimal watering—had rendered my soil, particularly the dense, sun-cured ground in my parking strip, positively adamantine. The excavation process required many hours with my modest shovel, piercing the

Half-Moon

posted by Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg on May 14, 2012 |

half-moon Half-Moon Alone in the bedroom or at the back of the large yoga class, against the wall or balanced alone in the shaking steadiness of this phase of the moon, I reach past the compressed sadnesses of one broken story or another, my arms, my legs spanning height and width, a new dream following the shining heart, lifted and leading. Past the night of staccato sleep, past the twisted arcs

Anjaneyasana: Reach for the Sun

posted by Charlotte Bell on May 9, 2012 |

anjaneyasanaAnjaneyasana:  Lunge for the Sun As a child, Anjaneya was a tad over-confident. Considering his origins, this is hardly unexpected. Born to Anjana (a supernatural woman) and Kesari (king of the monkeys), he had magical powers and royalty in his genetic inheritance. On top of all that, he was godson to the wind god, Vayu, and was considered to be a reincarnation of Lord Shiva. So when he gazed upward

on retreatOn Retreat:  Heading to the Woods Once every year, I go to the woods, to a small Catholic retreat center in northeast Kansas, which may not seem like the likely place you would find a Jewish girl from New York and New Jersey, but it is the perfect place. I arrive on a Thursday at Shantivanam: Forest of Peace where, after greeting the caretakers of this center, I head out

Slow Yoga: Feeling Your Practice

posted by Anna Guest-Jelley on May 1, 2012 |

slow yogaSlow Yoga Practice I’ve been getting into a slower yoga practice lately. I’m talking tortoise of the tortoise-and-the-hare fame. Since I’m not actually in a race, though, I’m not sure my story will turn out quite as cutely as the same children’s tale. (But I’m mostly okay with that.) Life in Slow Motion Ever since my dad passed away, I’ve just been taking everything slowly. Now don’t get me wrong,
