Home Yoga Practice: Honesty and Quiet Mind

This insertion of silence is a crucial part of yoga practice. Turning off the distractions of phones, computers, music, other people’s voices …. Leaves us alone with the inner distractions and chatter. It helps isolate our attention. It helps create an honest and authentic space of practice. It makes it your own.

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.”
