It's that time of year when things begin to fall apart a bit. Mercury is in retrograde. A quarter of the way through the year you've either stuck with your New Year's resolutions or you've fallen off the wagon. You know the magical Maine summer is just around the corner, and now is just, well, [...]

The Restlessness of Spring

By Skye Adams I don't know what it is about this time of year that makes me want to move. I can't sit still. I can barely hold onto a thought. I have wanderlust and I get bored easily. Is it the (relatively) good weather? I just want to be outside walking on the beach! [...]

Going In

By Skye Adams It's that time of year already, when all I want to do is eat and sleep. I take baths. I drink tea. I crave long-held seated forward bends and restorative poses. My body is preparing for hibernation. It's ready to go in. Unfortunately in our busy culture, we do not get to hibernate [...]

I Don’t Know and the Yoga of Compassion

"I don't know what suffering and sorrow and injustice and brutality and loss are FOR...And once we have said that, 'I don't know'—then we have reached the end of ourselves. Then, maybe all we can do is sit in silence with the person who is suffering, or with the people who are suffering, and just [...]
