Loving Orlando was easy. The hard part was continuing to love when he succumbed to end-stage alcoholism. When our marriage failed I could have spent my life carrying shame and anger. But suffering was a great teacher; meditation taught me how to get out of my head and into my heart. We met in junior high in the suburbs of ...

When I was a kid, my grandmother told me that I was her ugliest grandchild. She said it to be funny and I laughed to be polite. I was a very chubby kid growing up in an era where beauty was associated with being skinny. The more space you took, the less you were considered worthy. When I was in ...

Back in 2017, Jovanna and I traveled through Asia, filming a spiritual-travel documentary series called “Paths Up The Mountain.” We were interviewing gurus from various meditative traditions, to find out what Enlightenment and Spiritual Awakening actually ARE, what the feel like, and how normal people can experience them. One day, after returning to New York, I was sitting on my ...

Before I discovered the physical aspect of Yoga in my early twenties, meditation and mindful day-dreaming were always part of my daily life. It was something I practiced naturally as a little girl. I have memories of walking my dog in the rose gardens at my local park and I’d sit quietly with the flowers, cloud gazing or being present ...

Wounds are a part of our lives. Whether we were abandoned at birth, didn’t receive what we needed as a child, a parent died when we were young, or we grew up too quickly caring for an unwell parent, we all have experienced trauma to a greater or lesser degree. Sitting in meditation can be a wonderful way to witness ...

Saying that 2020 has been challenging would be an understatement. Between the uncertainty, stress, and anxiety, most days felt like a struggle. For the first few weeks of lockdown, I found it almost impossible to focus. I would be trying to write an article, then realize halfway through that I was thinking about my parents’ health instead of my topic. ...

I’ve been writing in notebooks since I was seven. More than a few times, I was seduced into buying a gorgeous hand-sewn notebook. Or one whose page edges were gilt in gold. Or a journal made from processed animal dung. In these unique notebooks, I gingerly wrote positive thoughts during beautiful days in my neatest cursive. One day when I ...

The Meaning of Meditation I’ve learned that meditation is much more than what you see on the big screen.
