Hello hello! Today’s podcast is a big one. My trip to Tokyo plus an apartment move created a HUGE disruption in my routines the last few weeks. I was feeling pretty angry at myself for not sticking with my meditation and movement routines, and it made me think of a favorite quote from a book by by Chogyam Tronpa Rinpoche called “Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior.”
He says – “there’s no embarrassment in being human.” This got me thinking….am I embarrassed to be human?
Today’s podcast is an investigation into embarrassment at being human, basic goodness, and overcoming deep fears. Continue reading…
Hello friends! I’m back from my week in Tokyo, and I’m bringing with me some powerful life lessons. Tokyo was a beautiful, bustling city, but it was also incredibly friendly and personal and quiet. In today’s podcast, I’m sharing these lessons on quiet, mindfulness, presence, and human connection.
And we’re back! After a long hiatus, our beloved yoga podcasts are back. My apologies for the delay. I was trying to improve my process, and in doing so, forgot to actually record. But no longer – I’ll be uploading yoga sequences more regularly in the future.
Are you a super goal-oriented person? I’m right there with you. Today on the podcast, I’m talking about how to have goals *and* enjoy the process.
We’ll be using wisdom from a former Jain monk, Stoic philosophy, and the founder of the Spartan Race to learn how to have goals and move forward while still dealing with the difficulties, uncertainties, and discomforts of the process. Continue reading…
Today on the podcast we have Kathleen Barry back to talk about Mercury Retrograde!
I know – it’s everyone’s favorite astrological phenomenon (or at least the one we hear about the most), but in this podcast, we’re going to do a deep dive in Mercury Retrograde to understand how it can be a catalyst for self-discovery, boundaries, and rebalancing in our crazy, tech-obsessed world.
This conversation, while wonderful, is imperfect – our tech, unsurprisingly, wasn’t working wonderfully, so you might miss a few words throughout the podcast. No fear – you’ll still get some amazing ideas and practices from the podcast.
Intermittent fasting has been all the rage in health and wellness in the last few years, but did you know that forms of intermittent fasting have been part of ancient medical traditions for thousands of years?
In Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of medicine and sister science to yoga, the digestive system is the most important organ system for wellness and vitality. For the past 5,000 plus years, Ayurveda has recommended a 12-hour window of fasting every day to promote the steady release of toxins from the body and the proper regeneration of the body’s energy and digestive power every day.
Nicole is an amazing creative and business woman. She started her interior design business 10 years ago when she realized that being a lawyer wasn’t using her gifts and energy to the best of her ability. I’m so glad that she made that change, because she now brings a wealth of kindness, empathy, and a brilliant design eye to her client’s homes. I often think that Nicole has so many clients because you just want to hang out with her, and after this conversation, I know that many of you will want to hang out with her too.
When exploring Stephen Covey’s first habit of Highly Effect People, I realized just how hard it can be to set real, meaningful goals and commit to acting on them.
Covey’s first habit is worded “begin with the end in mind.” He’s saying when we look at our end goal and name where we want to be, we can use that ending to direct our actions and decisions in the present.
Stephen Covey wasn’t the first to think that this was an important habit to live by. In Stoic philosophy, momento mori (“remember death”), is a keystone habit espoused by Socrates, Marcus Aurelius, and Seneca.
