‘Happiness Quotient’

Tuesday, March 21st, 2017

Gratitude… the thankfulness for what we have in our lives… and a healthy & fulfilling antidote for our continual desires. By regularly practicing gratitude, we can raise our level of happiness. By focusing on what is good & right about our lives, we can diffuse the energy behind what may be remotely lacking or inadequate. […]

± Events of Mind

Sunday, March 19th, 2017

Can our mindset affect our state of being? What happens to those thoughts and feelings we continuously reify? Are we what we seem to habitually think and feel? Can we compassionately separate ourselves from what we think and/or feel? Who is really thinking and feeling? Are these simply ‘events’ of mind and body manifesting as […]

‘Spiral of Life’

Friday, March 17th, 2017

Historically, the basic graphic elements (i.e. ‘dot’ & ‘spiral’) for this image has appeared as far back as 24,000 years. From the Neolithic to the early Celtic tribal people, it may have represented a sign of the ‘cosmos’- associated with bright stars of the constellations, or even the sun. Symbolically, it has always been a source […]

“I’M ALIVE!”

Sunday, February 26th, 2017

It’s so important not to take life or ourselves so seriously… or too personally. There’s always going to be bumps in the road. Failures, loss, uncertainties, disappointments, etc… are all part of the human experience- the ‘full catastrophe’ of life. What matters most is how we respond and relate to life’s events- and how we […]

Mindfully Me, ‘Mindfulness Muscle’

Saturday, February 25th, 2017

Our ‘mindfulness muscle’ is strengthened by the way we routinely use and direct our attention. It is an observing and abiding mind that objectively watches how we are as we are throughout our daily experiences… attentively noticing our automatic & habitual patterns with relaxed alertness, and gently redirecting our attention to the present moment as […]

Impermanence in Mind & Body…

Friday, February 17th, 2017

It may seem simple to do, but we don’t always take ourselves- our mind or body lightly… Disconnected with ephemeral presence, we are often distracted and even disturbed by what goes on in our own mind & body. Can we simply let be and let go these ‘events’ of mind and body as they are […]

Mindfully Me, ‘Fear Buster’

Thursday, February 9th, 2017

To ‘connect & redirect’ can be an effective technique for diffusing our fearful moments. It takes courage to acknowledge & engage our fears, but this is the best way to develop confidence and to help rewire the neural circuitry that regulates our tendency for fearful reactions. Once we connect or acknowledge the fear, we then […]

‘Peace of Mind’

Tuesday, January 24th, 2017

Let go of your troubles and allow yourself to be free. Acknowledge and accept things just as they are… as best you can. Try not to avoid or avert what is … while it is. The world is a very different place when our hearts are light and kind and our minds are open and […]

Realizing Our Human Condition…

Friday, January 20th, 2017

We all share in what is often referred to as the ‘human condition’… our propensity to suffer in the fragility, imperfectness, and impermanence of our own being. As an antidote to this vulnerable condition, we all have the inner capacity for awareness, compassion & understanding. It is with these core elements of our being that […]
