Where Are You – Modern Meditation

Where Are You – Modern Meditation

Where are you right now? Not just the physical location, but emotionally, in your own head? There is more to feeling peace than your location. There is more to your location than the address where you are, what you can see, hear or smell, because there is more to your world than just the space you fill. Take a moment to look around. Take a moment to look within. Ask yourself what you are feeling right now, right where you are. Are you feeling...

Stop Grasping

Stop Grasping

The Simple Truth is that many of you do not need meditation. you simply need to stop grasping. Centuries ago, letting go was probably enough to bring calm into someone’s life.

Q+A – Learn to Surf Your Meditation

Q+A – Learn to Surf Your Meditation

  A student asked me this week about going further in their meditation. They felt like they were getting stuck early on and becoming frustrated by their inability to “go further.” My comment to them was “where are you trying to go?” The beauty to meditation is that it is a journey to nowhere.

Monday Moments: Curate Your Authentic Self, Mindfully

Monday Moments: Curate Your Authentic Self, Mindfully

In so many ways Authenticity is the Art of Simplicity; both are about removing that which is not you, rather than trying to add that which is.

Neither happens overnight, but is the result of time. That is not to say you will never get to be who you want to be, knowing that it takes...
