Your body tells you when you’ve moved out of harmony: listen to learn

Your body tells you when you've moved out of harmony...you need only start listening. There is no hurry, however. Take your time. Learn to pause and listen. Find your own natural rhythm. Slow down, breathe, listen, tune yourself back into gaia's heart.

Attend and Befriend – Healing the Fear Body

I just posted something like this the other day. Tara Brach is always so good it made sense to post yet another on the same theme. Remember fear and anxiety are simply clinical terms for manifestations of fear. … [click on title for the rest of the post]

Melt into your own life

I've been studying The Gene Keys for a couple of years. I find the work a delightful contemporary mythological window into reality that truly does penetrate into the cells of the body if one contemplates the process that unfolds. -- "People don't need help. They need love." … [click on title for the rest of the post]

The art of contemplation (vis a vis meditation)

I tend to use the word meditation for all my contemplative adventures when I speak of them on this blog...simply for lack of a better way to explain my process. Here Richard Rudd speaks to the different sorts of ways our inner experience can be experienced. I found his definition of contemplation helpful because I often feel like meditation HAPPENS to me...and here it seems perhaps he would call that contemplation. Contemplation is physical too. This is what I liked about what he talks about. In contemplation we can change our body and transform in some very literal ways in body/mind and spirit. This is something I experience daily. I believe this is in keeping with epigenetics too. It has everything to do with healing from trauma. … [click on title for the rest of the post]

Are you at the end of your rope?

This is a very brief but wonderful meditation and emotional release. I highly recommend it. -- little excerpt (While) feeling so frustrated with all the trying and "efforting" that we put into things, I'd like us to go a little deeper and explore what the real underpinning is of all of that push to try to be in control of things. So in this moment can you allow yourself to just feel how much you just want to 'effort;, in fact it happens a lot, all day long... … [click on the title to read and view more]

The newly mindful Anderson Cooper (he drinks the kool-aid)

Anderson Cooper went to this retreat having never meditated. I found the clip quite enjoyable and if you're new to meditation it might be quite informative too. On a "mindfulness" retreat, Anderson Cooper puts down the microphone and learns to love silence, as well as life without a cell phone. … [click on title for the rest of the post]

Expansion and contraction

Today I'm very grateful for Shinzen Young. I woke with very contracted energy this morning and felt pretty distressed. I thought about how my energy contracts and expands a whole lot. When I thought about that I remembered that Shinzen Young's youtube channel is called "expandcontract." So I ventured over to his channel and found this dharma talk which was just exactly what I needed. Yes, guidance leads me to what I need pretty much always now. Guidance is showing me how to heal myself. … [click on title to read and view more]

Intimacy with the Body: Energy Medicine Yoga

Lauren speaks with Tami about the effectiveness of combining energy medicine techniques with yoga, how these practices can release trauma, and on-the-spot techniques to calm the fight-or-flight response. I've learned to do similar sorts of release work for myself with the combination of practices I utilize (and now that I've been following this sort of work for many years). The more one works with the body and mind in movement and meditation the more this sort of thing becomes intuitive and self-directed. The body speaks to us. Always. We need only to learn to listen. … [click on title to read and view more]

Learn to come back, to return to being present over and over again

The primary focus of this path of choosing wisely, of this training to de-escalate aggression, is learning to stay present. Pausing very briefly, frequently throughout the day, is an almost effortless way to do this. For just a few seconds we can be right here. Meditation is another way to train in learning to stay, or, as one student put it more accurately, learning to come back, to return to being present over and over again. … [click on title for the rest of the post]

Becoming the empowered, proactive patient, medicine for the future: Free online summits

There are good doctors out there that understand what has happened in the medical system. This is an opportunity for both lay people and professionals to learn from some of the most cutting edge medical practitioners who understand that we are holistic beings and that medicine as it's widely practiced is very harmful. This is the future of a medicine that can truly heal rather than harm. … [click on title to read more]
