It was about 11:00 at night, and I was shutting down the lights to go to bed.  As I walked into the kitchen, I froze. There was a tarantula the size of my hand in the middle of the floor. Oh my God! Oh my God! After a moment of panic, the rational part of my brain broke through my terror and told me that I had to deal with it. But how?...

 

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: I was telling my husband the other day about two lady bugs that crossed my path and what that meant on a cool, deeper level. Of course, being the beautiful black & white/ right & wrong man that he is... he stated, "Eden, bugs are just there." Oooo, but my dear ones... I believe everything that crosses your path in any shape or form is more, more, more. If only we open our hearts, awareness and minds. Here's a story 'bout just that!

 

Meditation


by Steven Handel

The most positive minds are still going to have negative thoughts every now and then.

We are not in complete control of our thoughts, some will pop up from time to time that we don’t invite into our heads...

 

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: I really like the section in this article where Steven talks about altering the tone of your thoughts. Humor and lightness are such fabulous tools when working with negativity.

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: This video series takes place at a scientific conference with Elissa Epel, PhD - Assoc Prof of Psychiatry/University of California. Part 1 (featured here) gives the background regarding the cell aging system (telomeres and telomerase). Part 2 (link provided at the end of video) extends into mental states and how stress shortens telomeres and how attention/presence increases telomeres. Part 3 gets to meditation research and its affect on aging. Would love to just give you Part 3 but is a bit complex without the background info.

"Every stress leaves an indelible scar and the organism pays for its survival after a stressful situation by becoming a little older."

I am sOoOo thankful that I was encouraged to read this (talking to you, Beth!). I am calling this my new “guide book” in terms of helping my own students with chronic pain/depression via meditation/mindfulness. It has given me more ways to discuss the neurology and constructs of pain, and it will help you if you are struggling with consistent pain of any kind, beyond just the back...

 

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: I think this book is a must read for anyone with chronic pain of any kind.

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: This video is a must see for educators...

Do you believe happiness and well-being should be considered skills? Research shows that they are fundamentally no different than learning how to play an instrument. Research has also shown that meditation, in any form, helps cultivate these skills as well as the ability to concentrate and self-regulate. This video of kindergartners at Oxford Elementary School in Berkeley, San Francisco gives an in depth look at the way mindfulness is being incorporated into the classroom (as well as yoga). 41 minutes but well worth the time.

 

Meditation


 

by Lama Zopa Rinpoche

With each buddha, if possible, completely rely upon that buddha with your whole heart, then recite that buddha’s name seven times. With total refuge, or trust, in that buddha, recite his name seven times. After that, you recite, “May whatever prayers you have done in the past for me and all other sentient beings be actualized immediately for me and all sentient beings.” This is mentioned in the meditation that accompanies the Medicine Buddha initiation in the Rinjung Gyatsa, and it might be the same in the Sukha Gyatsa. Both of these collections of the initiations of hundreds of deities have Medicine Buddha initiation...

Meditation 


by Katrina Kenison Lewers

You know how it is. The dishes need washing, the houseplants are wilting, the emails have piled up, the kids are needy, and the dog is scratching at the door to go out. There is no end to the to-do list, no reward or revelation to be found at the bottom of the laundry hamper, no moment in the day when life feels entirely manageable, tidy, and complete...

 

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: As Katrina describes it... working on your soul and your peace isn't about retreating or going to some special place (although, don't get me wrong, that is awesome and times when that is a beautiful thing). However, for long term, it's about being in the middle of the plain and ordinary, about finding happiness in pulling a hair out of your nose, about finding comfort as your kids get in a fight, finding peace as you find moldy apple cores in your minivan, etc, etc, etc...

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: Eckhart quickly yet clearly discusses solving the problems of the world not with meetings or discussions but via connecting more with source.

 

Meditation


by Jamila Gorman

Controlling the subconscious mind through visualization exercises can be a form of self-hypnosis or a stage of spiritual awareness in which visualization is a powerful tool. Many individuals believe both result in the same state of mind for the individual, making them ultimately the same process...

 

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: Many people meditate by using visualizations or through guided meditations that also focus on visual scenarios. This article discusses the benefits of visualization practices as our minds and bodies can react just as profoundly to "reality" or to the reality that we create in our heads.

Stop Pretending

by Catherine Ingram

One day a six-year-old friend said to me, “Pretend you are surrounded by a thousand hungry tigers. What would you do?” I visualized the situation as he had suggested and, coming up with no viable plan of action, said, “Wow, I don’t know. What would you do?” And he replied, “I’d stop pretending.”
