The View from the Yoga Studio

posted by Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg on June 11, 2012 |

redefine beautyRedefine Beauty in the Moment As I pulled my chest forward in upward facing dog, and right before I arched my back, I caught the view out the window of the yoga studio:  a field of rushing blond grasses against the fast-moving blue-gray clouds of the storm to come, and behind the earth and sky, cars darting quickly down a busy road, beige professional buildings scattered throughout the scene.

There is No Lack: Possibility is in Your Reach

posted by Crystal Griffiths on May 31, 2012 |

lackLack is an Illusion Here’s a major block to getting what you want: scarcity or lack of consciousness. What’s that mean? It means believing that there is not enough to go around. Doesn’t matter what you think it is, this applies to all forms of manifestations. Love, money, success, happiness, whatever. Buying into the belief that there is not enough will only hinder you. Why? Well, first of all, in

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.

No More Homeless Pets: Supporting Community Cats

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.

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

posted by Crystal Griffiths on May 22, 2012 |

forgivenessForgiveness:  Free Yourself Part of being free means learning how to forgive. Forgive yourself first and then extend that forgiveness to those who have harmed you. 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 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
