I’ve long suspected that my mindfulness practice helps prevent me from getting ill. In my old life, before Mindfulness, I worried a lot and I was sick a lot. If someone sneezed within a mile of me, then I’d catch it. Winter was one cold after another with maybe an episode of “wipe out” flu, thrown in for good measure...


Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Meditation... mindfulness... could they be practices that help with almost everything?! Even the common cold. Ooooo, yes!

Helping other people on their spiritual journey is one of the most prominent qualities of an enlightened person. When you begin to see your interconnectedness with the rest of humanity, you will see the suffering in other people, and your compassion for them will naturally grow. One of the ways we can help others is by starting a meditation group...


Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: My meditation work is all centered around group work. Why? Because as Charles states in his article... the power of doing this work with other people transcends your meditation to another level of feeling, trust and connection. Ironically, we find ourselves through others.

Mindfulness practices like meditation have been in existence for thousands of years, but only now are they reaching the tipping point in the Western world...


Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: I've been teaching mindfulness and meditation for over 8 years now, and I also see the big signs of change with people and companies opening to these practices. And, I must say, in my experience, it is indeed the science that has made these practices now acceptable. Sooo, thank you researchers for showing clearly and inexplicably what many have known deep down inside for centuries.

Close your eyes for a few seconds. Imagine you’re the person in this image experiencing a magical moment at the beach. Breathe in the fragrance of the ocean while the sun kisses your face, feel how your skin is caressed by the gentle breeze and your feet embraced by the playful waves as they rest in the soothing wet sand. Smile and while you’re still feeling this paradisiacal scene slowly open your eyes and come back to my words...


Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Roxana's article speaks to the heart of what we learn through meditation... to find abundance in "unexpected" ways. Love her term the "abundance zone."




Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: I am always looking for ways to deepen my breathing in meditation and yoga. This quick video utilizing shoes on the chest and belly provides a great visual of breathing from the diaphragm.

Meditation is the experience of attentional focus; of stilling the mind and existing in the infinite space that exists beyond your thoughts...


Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Meditation is the "mainstay of my inner work." How about you?

Loneliness is a widespread problem in Western society, especially among older adults, which doesn’t seem to get enough attention. As adults grow older, there is a tendency for them to become more isolated from their families and society in general...


Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Young people need mindfulness. Older adults need mindfulness. For gosh sake, all ages need mindfulness! This article speaks specifically to the healing of isolation which is an issue among the older population in the States. This article also features the studies done at Carnegie Mellon University via J. David Creswell which we have also highlighted separately on the meditation page.




Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: The best line in this video, "To open your eyes, you simply have to close them."


by Tara Hornich-Lisciandro

Standardized tests, course exams, homework, after-school sports and activities, part-time jobs—many of our students live very busy and pressure-packed lives. As educators, we teach them how to better organize all of the “stuff” in their lives, but we rarely teach our students how to organize their thoughts and soothe their anxieties. Often, the stress of their daily lives accumulates until a “worry ball” forms...


Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: This article is written specifically to educators. But, aren't we all. Give it a read...



by Thich Nhat Hanh

Children can practice sitting meditation together in a circle. You bring your pebbles in, and after having breathed in and out with the bell, you pick out four pebbles, and you put them on your left. One of you will be the leader of sitting meditation. You invite the bell one time for people to breathe in and out, allow themselves the time to breathe in and out three times. And after having practiced three sounds of the bell, you begin your pebble meditation. I would like you to draw four things for me.


Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: For kids...



by Donna Bloom

I recently taught a meditation class on gratefulness, especially in times of discomfort or turmoil.  Everyone was instructed to think of an irritating episode during the past week and actually bring up the feelings and discomfort.   The next step was to list five blessing of gratitude, in light of the irritation.  The class felt the exercise was therapeutic and each had their own “Ah Ha moment.” This exercise was training for future experiences...





Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Dr. Siegel uses the term "brain hygiene". Cool term. Watch on.
