I don't think in my own case, there is a straight trajectory to becoming still. For me, it is a series of fits and starts and just as I think I got it, I don't have it. But each and every time that I touch the stillness (which I believe is my true essence, akin [...]

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade (various Carnegie, Hubbard, etc.)That is how I feel about my Daily Lessons in life.  And boy do I get them.  Not a day goes by that I don't learn something about myself.  It could be the smallest inkling of understanding that I will store away in my memory bank [...]

You can bury your head, or get out thereOur recent Snowmaggedon has got me thinking about people's tempers and patience.  What I saw and what I heard were two different things.  Scenario: Pre-storm.

I have been thinking of my next step on my journey to becoming a yoga therapist and how very right this feels.  It took me a very long time to make this leap towards becoming a yoga therapist.  I always knew that I had therapeutic leanings in my yoga teachings and really didn't know what [...]
