Releasing, with forgiveness

I’ve been meditating a lot lately, using this mantra: “I release with forgiveness and compassion”, and I’ve been loving it, especially because it’s so perfect for this spring season. Winter is time for hibernation, for being still, for accumulating a bit more –...

Counterbalancing the season

Here we are in February, with many of us, at least on the East Coast, already having experienced record-breaking amounts of snow!  While it's still chilly and spring is a ways off, there's also a dampness and heaviness setting in; I can see it through my office window...

Love

"You are a beloved of the universe. You are as beautiful as the sunrise and as ancient as the stars. You are a spark of divine love in human form. Through you goodness and light flow into this world."                                                                    ...

I have a spice powder to recommend; I can't recommend it highly enough. Very delicious, goes with nearly everything, and perfect for warming up this time of year. Full credit goes to Nina Simonds - the recipe comes from her excellent cookbook, Spices of Life.  A great...

Lighten up!

I’ve been finding myself drawn lately to go through cupboards, closets, and storage spaces, and see what I can donate, throw out or recycle. And it occurred to me on a beautiful sunny day recently, as I was feeling compelled to do nothing but go through piles of...

Here’s mud in your eye

Kapha season is upon us!  Kapha is the dosha, or constitution, that is made up of earth and water; this combination is predominant in the spring season and is most easily recognizable as mud.  Everything is thawing; moisture is being released in the environment, and...

Ayurveda: An Introduction to the Elements

Ayurveda looks at the world through the lenses of the five elements of ether, air, water, fire and earth. Everything that exists has these five elements in it, in different proportions. This includes human beings…we all are made up of, on a fundamental level, ether,...

Avoiding communication traps

Happy Valentine’s Day!  Since today is a day about connecting with loved ones, I thought it might be a good idea to touch on the subject of communication, specifically, to discuss behaviors that might be causing harm to your relationships, and how to identify them....
