‘Relax- Time Out to Be’

Monday, February 22nd, 2016

Simply being, we step out of conventional time into the spaciousness & timelessness of our own awareness. With patience and spaciousness of mind, we may create the necessary room for greater clarity, tolerance, and understanding. Instead of pushing back our experiences we may now allow them to arise and reveal their true nature…fundamentally trusting our […]

Awakening to “Real Time” Connectivity

Wednesday, November 18th, 2015

Mindfulness is a practice that can prove very useful in effectively relating to the new frontier of “real time” connectivity. Today, we often get so caught up in adapting to all of the rising new possibilities and challenges, learning to use the new technologies to get more done- faster and perhaps even better. However, in […]

‘Thinking’…

Saturday, November 7th, 2015

We are not our thoughts… We are not defined by our critical thinking, or by the ‘self-critic’ from within. We are something much more than who or what we may conceive ourselves to be. In this practice of coming to know ourselves and our experiences of mind, we rest in awareness in the spirit of […]

‘SELF’

Wednesday, November 4th, 2015

What often stands in our way is our solidified concept of ‘SELF’. Rigid and steadfast, we often stay the course unable to free ourselves from conditioned patterns and belief systems that function to support who we ‘think’ we are… rather than who we truly may be, or who we may potentially become. Relaxing this concretized […]

Be Kind to Yourself

Sunday, October 18th, 2015

In our Western society, we tend to be driven doers– striving to work harder- to win- to succeed- to be the best. Often, we hold our self-worth in the accomplishments of outperforming others. As over-achievers, we are hard-wired to be highly competitive and highly self-critical when we don’t measure up. Bound by perpetual comparison to […]

Health & Well-being- A Quality of Attention?

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

What happens when we don’t pay close attention to the mind & body? With a lack of attention and a growing disconnection to our built-in ‘feedback’ system of mind & body, do we then sacrifice our ‘inner measure’ for balance, stability, and order with the whole of our being? Consequently, if we are unable to […]

Remember This Moment…

Monday, September 28th, 2015

REMEMBER… to pay attention… to breathe… to be here & now without judgment… without striving to be anywhere else but in this moment… shifting from doing to simply being. REMIND yourself that you are already ‘whole’… a human being so much more than its often fleeting thoughts, feelings, or bodily sensations. RECONNECT with this ‘wholeness’ […]

The ‘Wandering Mind’

Monday, September 14th, 2015

Our mind wanders almost 50% of the time, and to reel it in can be as simple as watching the breath. When we notice our mind has wandered off, we let go of the wandering ‘thought’ and gently bring it back to the breath.. again and again. The breath is our ‘anchor’ as it helps […]

Wise Action

Saturday, July 11th, 2015

Not knowing, we PAUSE without any action. We open ourselves freeing attention, listen and notice. We allow the situation to reveal itself without any preconceptions or knee-jerk reactions. Clarity arises in an atmosphere that is quiet and calm. Here, there is ‘space’ for glimpses of insight to stream their revealing ‘light’. If we are patient […]

‘Aha!’ Moments

Friday, May 22nd, 2015

Big ideas may be readily born from moments when the mind and body are relaxed, and when we may spontaneously gain access to the creative energies subliminally hidden in our subconscious. In this stillness, there is free space for insight and inspiration to arise. When our attention is free, we open our awareness to new […]
