It’s morning again 

The day is waking up

The earth turning enough 

So the sun blesses the sky Read More

It’s a feat of nature to walk through life asleep
To one day awaken so suddenly
The abrupt and rude emergence
From outside the moment and into presence Read More

I moved the five loads of laundry that was spread across the floor off to one side so that we’d have a space to sit. A mosquito danced in the air and disappeared from my sight, though for a minute or two stayed on my mind while I thought about how irritating it could be during the meditation; that thought slipped away as fast as it had popped up.

Approaching the next major vertex of my life: the converging point between past, present, and future. In reality, this converging point is transient and moves wherever we do, but there’s something deeply meaningful about the oncoming passage through time. Though I may not have the right words or am running on partial inclinations not yet fully formed, I feel the call toward a rite, a ritual, an initiation into a power that has been welling and brewing within for what seems like this entire lifetime.

The sky was somewhat parted. Dark, blue and grey clouds cast their shadow from the North, while to the South a golden light lit up the leaves that litter the earth. I must have looked up at the perfect moment, because the combination of dark and light mixed perfectly to create an almost impossibly lucid backdrop. Read More

I first found Kundalini yoga about 11 years ago, when I was turning 20. It was a radical practice, and I had a love-hate relationship with it. If you’ve tried this practice out you’ll know it’s a challenge for every aspect of your being. It took me a while to understand that I was constantly coming up against myself, pushing up against my fears, attachments, ideas of normalcy or right and wrong. Read More

The simultaneous presence and de-rooting that occurs gives a special insight into a nature normally hidden by the illusion of separateness. The opportunities to understand and solidify experience become apparent and rise with great speed. Articulation comes with confidence and ease so that words flow fluidly without thought from a deep wellspring. Less rigidity allows for abstractions otherwise impossible, and Faraday’s lines bend and skew like Einstein’s mind. Resistance and desire to put up a fight against ones own confabulations fall away, and so does the solidity of the earth. Read More

“Half of nutrition is what you eat, but the other half is how you eat.” — Marc David

I have a vivid memory of writing in a cafe in Rishikesh, India as I nibbled from a plate of deep fried felafel, potatoes, fluffy pita bread, and creamy hummus, that I finally felt I was reconnected with joy of eating once again. I had eaten my way around town, and would often sit for hours in the same spot or find places off the beaten track as I wandered through the town. Read More

Most women will understand the feeling of being completely out of tune and disconnected from their menstrual cycle. There’s a sense of haziness, even darkness and confusion, and for a lot of women, a feeling of misidentification with their femininity. Read More

Moon time. My time. Mystery time. What does menstruation mean to you? What does it feel like in your body? Years ago, the relationship I had with my period was rough and characterized by disdain and irritation. It was a time where I experienced heavy PMS symptoms, and my periods were quite painful. I would curl up in bed, probably cry and wish for it to be over soon. Read More
