Last week, I shared with each of you an abundance of yoga philosophy in the shape of the Yamas and Niyamas.  I realized that implementing and practicing these virtues can be overwhelming.  Maybe it is best to target one that you want to work on in your life for awhile.  Practicing with one concept at [...]

And the beat goes on....here I am post-cleanse.  I wish I could say that it was the miraculous transformation that so many have witnessed in their own cleanses.  Indeed, there were micro-changes.  I spent a lot of the time observing my physical reaction to limiting sugars, caffeine, processed foods and most proteins as well as [...]

It is beautiful how much life is filled with moments where we decide to act and then realize how those actions affect others.  This morning, I was on my way back home, when I spied a bird floundering in the road.  I kept driving but right away I knew that when I got home, I [...]

Picture this...the way a driveway glistens after a rainfall, the somewhat random mowing pattern of my neighbor, which created a mosaic on his lawn, or how each bird call outside my window is not so random and done with intention.  I have been noticing the little things in my life this week and each of [...]
