Embracing the Fullness

Photo credit: Rita Pierce I sit here writing this and witness a picture perfect day in Maine: bluebird sky, full sunshine, gentle warm breeze, the bay filled with sailboats, flowers in full bloom, children with ice cream stained t.shirts licking their cones, friends riding bikes, a seeker of knowledge lounging in the grass [...]

Lila…8 years in reflection.

It was December 2016 when I was first introduced to the word Lila (pronounced lee-lah). I was a bright eyed student, sitting on the wooden floor of an incensed-bathed yoga studio in Connecticut, waiting for my teachers to share with me my last assignment in my Yoga Teacher Training. When their gaze came my way, [...]

Lessons I Learned From Knitting

by Heather Altenburg I have picked up knitting…again.  I have a mother who can knit anything; she is amazing.  It is one of the many things she creates with her hands; she has a love and a passion for making beautiful things and giving them to others.  Though I have marveled at her my whole [...]

The month of LOVE. If you have been reading and following my newsletters over the years, you may now know this is the time of year I love to bring conscious reflection on LOVE. All things LOVE. Love as all encompassing. In yogic texts, love, bliss, and ananda are all used to refer to the [...]

Monday held a weightiness to the day. The start of a new year was being recognized around the globe. Whether you stayed up to toast with friends and watch the ball drop, created lists of reflections and/or resolutions to save or send to the fire, or opened a new calendar, collectively as a human species [...]

Gifting Yourself Presence

Time Enough By Dana Faulds The wisdom voice says: “Be still. Take time for what is truly important.” I imagine myself diving, leaving behind an untidy trail of what’s not needed. I cast aside worry, which has never brought me anything even remotely useful. I let go of doubt, and all the countless ways I [...]

Conscious Consumerism

Last night I gathered in celebration with the group of Fall Cleansers.  Together we shared insights, observations, and reflections on what it was like to become more conscious and clear about the way we created space in our environments and in our own bodies.  Be it simplifying diets, choosing to take in less stimulants from [...]

Nature’s Classroom

I am not always the first to know about big breaking news. A while back I made a conscious decision not to turn on my radio in my car, instead choose what I wanted to ingest through my ears. I have always been super sensitive to information, images, sounds and found that when I can [...]

Humility

Last week my family and I decided to wake before dawn and climb to the top of the nearby mountain to witness the rising of the sun.  We sat there on the mountain top, bundled up in sleeping bags to protect us from the crisp fall-like air, and witnessed the most gorgeous display of mother nature [...]
