Ever since the financial crisis of 2008, I have sensed from many leaders that they want to do a better job of leading in accordance with their personal values..


Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Ok, so this article focuses on "business leaders." However... this applies to all of us. If you intake any type of resource, or spend money... you lead and affect business. Do your choices mindfully represent what you want out of your life, for your kids, for your world?

 

Meditation


 

Editor's Note: The author of The End of Your World, Emptiness Dancing, and True Meditation, Adyashanti offers spontaneous and direct nondual teachings that have been compared to those of the early Zen masters and Advaita Vedanta sages. In this video, he explains why identifying with and believing the content of our thoughts is the equivalent of living in a dream world. True meditation, he says, is key to waking up from the dream.

Meditation is an altered state of consciousness which removes distraction and allows a person clarity and awareness. Beginning with ancient man, the practice of meditation spread throughout the world and evolved into many different forms...



 

 


Meditation


by Sr. Chau Nghiem

Touching the earth is a practice developed by Thich Nhat Hanh to help us connect with the many different aspects of who we are: our blood and spiritual families; the country we live in; and all beings– animals, plants and minerals. When we are connected to our roots, to all that sustains us, we are happy and solid, no longer isolated and lonely. The following text is a version for young people written by Sr. Steadiness and Sr. Swiftness. For the original text see Teachings on Love, by Thich Nhat Hanh or click here for the Five Touchings of the Earth and here for the Three Touchings of the Earth and here for more practices.

 

Editor’s Note: Another wonderful meditation practice to do with the young ones.

Meditation


by Vincent Horn

So much of what I’ve been learning about lately is around vulnerability. Vulnerability in a psychological sense, of seeing my own limitations and being willing to acknowledge them. And also in a more cognitive and spiritual sense. The cognitive vulnerability has to do with dropping common ways of knowing and doing things, and stepping into new and uncomfortable territory, kind of like an infant when it takes a few shaky steps...

 

Editor's Note: I'm a big fan of Vincent Horn's podcast and writings. He has a remarkable wisdom for his age and loves tackling important questions.

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Gosh, just listen... please. Take two minutes to simply connect with yourself and the perfection that is you!

 

Meditation


 

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Meditation can happen if you just have one minute... the video describes a minute as... "A moment with handles on it." Love that. Oooo, and I love when they state... "It's ok to smile" while meditating. Hot dog on that.

 

Meditation


by Priscilla Warner

Since my book about healing from a panic disorder has been published, I've tried to stay focused on all the positive feedback I've been getting. But when one reviewer called me "likeable if rather self-involved," her words hit home...

 

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Like Priscilla I believe it is necessary to be "self-involved" to find inner peace. Inner peace only comes from exactly that - your innards! Also, our author states here that meditation isn't always "fun, glamorous or intellectually stimulating." Oooo, how those of us who practice can relate to that one. Many times it is the greatest and heaviest work we can do... and eventually the most rewarding.

 

Meditation


by Karen Jolly

Our human brain often runs on “auto.” We’ve all experienced this automatic reaction to stressful situations, called the fight or flight response. Naturally this auto-pilot response is built in to keep us safe...

 

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: A beautiful thing happens when we commit to the truth... that we are the only ones responsible for our thoughts and feelings.

 

Meditation


 

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Short and sweet. I am working right now on "being nothing."

Interviewed by Eden Kozlowski, Meditation Editor on ATH

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Eden: I’m going to give a quick background on you and then go into some questions. From my perspective, Sri Sri’s message is very simple… it is about bridging the gaps. The gaps that are created by our perceived differences stemming from pride, nationalism, religion which create war, famine, poverty and lack. So, these deep holes move us away from the concept that our differences are to be cherished as we are each so unique…. and, oddly enough in that uniqueness, discovering that we are also so much the same and connected. Connected in ways that the human mind has trouble grasping. However, in the quiet of meditation, we can find that calm and that deep understanding that… at the end of the day… we all want the same thing… peace and happiness. In a Huffington Post article titled Food for the Soul, Sri Sri calls it our “original nature...”

 

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: In 2009 Forbes ranked Sri Sri Ravi Shankar number five when calculating the seven most powerful people in India. From my perspective... he is simply an amazing person whose mission is to propagate meditation and the happiness that blossoms from the practice. AND, I got to talk to him from my basement while my kids, cat and dog were all upstairs! Isn't life just magical?! AND, apologizing now to Sri Sri for cutting him off several times within the delicate pauses... ugg, but is what it is, right?

MEDITATION
Neuroscience is Catching up to Spirituality

by J. Stewart Dixon

Last fall I took a Mindfulness and the Brain course at the University of Virginia’s Mindfulness Center. It was a revelation; not in terms of the mind’s potential, or it’s power to change or its’ more esoteric capabilities. Nope. I learned those lessons from some twenty-five years of spiritual seeking and now teaching in the schoolhalls of new-age metaphysics, yoga, guru admiration, advaita vedanta, and zen mindfulness. Got it...
