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 ...

New Years Resolutions are easy to make, and notoriously hard to keep. Remember that resolution from last year about going to the gym every day? How’s that one working out for ya? 😂 But resolving to adopt or change even one small habit, and actually sticking to that resolution, can change your life in ways that you may not yet ...

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. Studying Child and Youth Work in college then practicing as a spiritual medium for the past 5 years has truly shaped my very own personal interpretation of meditation practices. Born and raised in Baltimore, Ontario, Canada – meditation wasn’t a general ...

Picture the choppy water, the way it foams as it crashes over rocks and sprays into the air. The water we can see on the surface is like our everyday lives. It’s a bit chaotic. Our jobs, family ...

In the US, more people die each year from opioid drugs than from traffic accidents. The drugs kill around 100 Americans each day. They’re highly addictive, with about 25% of people who receive a prescription becoming addicted. Conventional treatments for opioid addiction are expensive and demonstrate limited success. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, treatment costs about $4,700 ...

Parenting is challenging under routine circumstances, much less during a global pandemic.  As we navigate this time of stress and uncertainty, bringing mindfulness to how we parent can support the well-being of our children, as well as our own sense of equanimity.  How we mindfully raise our children varies based on ages and temperaments, as well as the particular dynamics ...
