Time is not currency, we cannot waste it

There is no such thing as wasting time. It is one of the greatest falsehoods that have detoured my thinking with shame and fear and insecurity. The concept of wasting time is rooted in the productivity worth culture. If I am not producing I am not worthy and I am wasting time. Your time. Our

Emergence

“Emerging never ends, never stops. Emergence is our state.” ~belinda Emerging from a stillness, a time of meditation and processing and healing. I am emerging. I have been silent for a while.

Yoga for your eyes and vision

My eyes are tired.
They are tired of screens and electronic lighting.
They are tired of seeing the harshness of the world; trying to see things your way; not seeing what I need to. The eyes – the windows to the outside world and the portals to our inner vision and inner spirit guides – need just as much attention as hips and core and legs.

Plan to practice yoga, practice your yoga plan

Developing a personal practice is one of the most difficult, sincere and rewarding things one can do in a life. And while I’m applying this concept to a yoga practice, it holds true for all. A spiritual practice. A martial arts practice. A creative practice. Making it your own, doing it with dedication and devotion,

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

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.

“May I be happy. May I be healthy. May I know peace.”
