An Uncomfortable Lesson in Slowing Down

Back on an August late Saturday morning, I was driving north on Route 18.  Speed limit is a strict 65mph on Route 18, but there is this one spot as you get further north where it shifts down to 55mph.  I was cruising 75mph (already going over speed limit) but knew that shift was ahead, … Continue reading

Confessions of a Perfect Period

Confessions of a Perfect Period

I confess. I’ve tried to “perfect” my period. As a “recovering perfectionist”  I’ve reflected a great deal on my perfectionist tendencies and how they’ve affected my health and my life.

It’s not really much of a challenge for them considering they’re 100% and 99% vegan respectively.  I guess I just … Continue reading

The Yang of Yoga

For years I believed that men and yoga did not as a rule seem to flow in the same circles. As time and my practice marched on I saw how untrue that belief was. I’ve encountered many dedicated male yogis over the years, but it’s still rare to see more than two in a class … Continue reading

A Novice’s Journey Into The Self

Who am I you might ask to be writing about spirituality? Am I a devout Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim or Christian? Nope. Do I meditate every moment and spread Zen love wherever I go? Not exactly. Do I study theology or have a history of religious practice? No. So I have no credentials and I’m no … Continue reading
