Finding connection amidst confusion, calamity and crisis

From the fear and uncertainty and grief of the pandemic, to the rage and fury of the continued racial oppression-terror-erasure in our country, I have asked my creator, “what am I to do or say?” As an Afro-Asian woman of color, as a trauma survivor, as an elder, I ask it. As a mentor to

Peace amidst COVID-19 social isolation

Are we really deprived? Or is that an illusion of our minds? A falsehood born out of our fear?
In the center of a tornado or hurricane there is an eye.
That eye contains a much storied tranquility and peace. Nature has shown us the way and what’s possible in the middle of a storm.
Debris and destruction are on the outside but at the core is solid and secure peace.

Bully for mom seeking meditation for kids

The room was peacefully silent with only the soft inhales and exhales of those sitting around the room. The light from the window was subtle this late-winter morning.

Among those circled around the room for the 9 a.m. Sunday meditation were two tweens who had come with their mom.

Practice note: Welcome mistakes in yoga playfully

If you approach your yoga or meditation practice – any conscious-elevating experience – with a result-oriented mind-set you’ve already missed the point.   Make a mistake. I want students to feel that stumble in one-legged poses. I encourage folkx to allow that trembly, shaking feeling when their core is exerting in boat pose and it’s

Hope as a practice

I honestly haven’t thought much about the components of hope. And I sit and think about everything! It had become a word that was a bridge conveying a desire. Hope FOR something else. It also is a trademark symbol of the Obama campaign. Today I am humbled by the depths of what I’ve come to

Balance act: A practice of attention, patience and humor

I have no balance. This is a common claim of many who want to start yoga. They are hoping for a yoga pose or a video they can watch to “give me balance.” Balance is not a perfectly level scale. We are not perfectly symmetrical beings. We are not perfect. (just in case you were
