Have a date with sunshine

    In 2006 I had just come back from spending 6 months in India studying yoga and working in the slums of Mumbai, I had no job and no idea what was next for me. When I was offered a short term teaching gig for a teacher who leaving for a few months I happily accepted and decided to pursue a legit western 200-hr certification to make sure I had the “credentials” to teach. At the time there were only a few teacher training courses in the SF Bay Area and I was searching for something that reminded me ofContinue Reading >>

Full Moon Meditation

  Every month the moon graces us with it powerful presence in its entirety. Have you ever noticed how you feel around this time?   I’ve been paying attention to my mood and the moon and have discovered even more of myself. The full moon amplifies your mood – if you’re angry you’ll be angrier, and if you’re joyous you’ll experience it to the fullest.

How? With your word. If you want someone to be a jerk, call them a jerk and guess what … They become a jerk (to you). If you want to be loving… tell someone you love them…. And just like that you have become loving. With that kind of power at the tip of your tongue plus a bit of mindfulness to useContinue Reading >>

Slow down to the point of stillness

  Sometimes I don’t want to move. I don’t want to run, bike, lift heavy objects, read, write, or speak. Sometimes I just want to sit still in a moment and be there. Fully there. Without the to do list and without judgement. In this busy world it’s rare that we find time to slow down to stillness. If you wait for that moment it will never come. If you create it, it will always be there. Today I invite you to sit still amongst the chaos and just be. You’ll be surprised at all that you discover – good,Continue Reading >>
