Bodywork and the Four Paths of Yoga

When most people think about moving their body, they inevitably think about working out, or exercising. That is also how most people think about Yoga in the West, they associate it with fitness, becoming more flexible, stronger. There are no shortages of videos promoting the benefits of Yoga as a workout, as a way to destress and maybe find some relaxation at the end of the class lying down for a few minutes on the mat. This approach to yoga while a good start, is one-dimensional and is only the tip of the iceberg.

It is Love or Attachment?

Love in its truest sense is freedom. It is an expansive force that accepts and embraces all that we are. Within relationships, love is the ability to be able to have unconditional acceptance of another without judgement.

Often we confuse love with attachment. Attachments keep us bound in illusions. Attachments make us look for permanence within what can never be permanent — the material world. Everything in the material world is subject to the law of birth and death. So if we attach ourselves to something that will inevitably come to an end, we will suffer.

This kind of attachment is prevalent in our relationships in our modern world where we look for permanence and stability in another person, instead of connecting to that essence within us that is permanent, our spirit, our soul.

Healing from Relationships that Hurt

There are fewer things more painful than getting your heart broken. Yet it is an experience that all of us have to go through at some point or another. Failed relationships are painful in and of themselves, but then there are relationships that break us in more ways than one. Relationships that are as painful during their course as they are when they end. Often relationships that are unhealthy and painful are harder to recover from than the ones that don't touch us in that way.

Health & Healing - Mind, Body, Spirit

Health is about much more than our physical bodies. We are spiritual beings in a physical body with a mind that is far more powerful than we recognize. When we stop treating the different aspects of our being as separate from each other, and understand them to be one cohesive whole, only then can we achieve true and holistic health.

Full Moon in Aquarius - Emotions Running High

The Moon is an emotional planetary archetype. It’s the deeper aspect of us, the feminine, more subconscious side of us that we are not always aware of. It doesn’t particularly feel at home in the sign of Aquarius, which is a masculine, eccentric and mental air sign. There is a natural feeling of agitation when the moon is in Aquarius, and with tonight’s full moon, it’s even more high strung because this full moon squares, i.e. makes a tense aspect to the planet Uranus (which actually rules Aquarius). Uranus is the archetype of the wild card in astrology. The ruler of innovation, technology and the iconoclastic mindset. This full moon has quite a strong Uranian flavor to it, which means expect the unexpected.

Summer Solstice and Ring of Fire Solar Eclipse - Freedom Lies Within

Happy Summer Solstice friends! The solstice goes exact today at 5:44pm EDT, ringing in the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere as we rejoice in the beginning of summer. The ancients believed that the solstice was a time when the veils between the worlds thinned and this year we also have a solar eclipse on the night of the solstice, which happens about every 40 years or so, and adds a potent punch to this already magical time.
