BOO Candy Recipe

  How are you transitioning into Fall? It's important to maintain our health during the changing of the seasons, especially since it can sneak up on us and the next thing we know we've got low energy and a runny nose. Around my house we make something called Boo Candy. Take several spoonfuls daily when [...]

Making Peace With Impermanence

This past Wednesday night I walked hand in hand with my 5 year old son into his kindergarten meet and greet.  Though many parents before me had talked about the transition to kindergarten being such a monumental one, and have heard many stories of breakdowns, tears, and slobbery messes on the first day, I just [...]

Spirits of Summer

I flipped my calendar page this morning from July to August, and a wave of urgency to “get after it” rushed through my mind. Summertime in Maine is so sweet, and so short! It is hard to believe that June and July both have come and gone. Right after the wave of slight overwhelm, I [...]

Today is the cultural beginning of summer. Many of us gathered with friends and loved ones, or remembered those who could not be there. We laughed and ate and watched as the rain cleared and the sun came out. We felt connected because we were together. Last weekend Tracy Bleier came to Lila and gathered [...]

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.

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! [...]

The Journey Home

Several of us at Lila are embarking on international traveling adventures next week, some to practice yoga and surf in tropical Costa Rica, and others (OK, just me) to explore the wet, lush landscape of Ireland.
