Editor's Note: Sam Harris is an American author, neuroscientist and CEO of Project Reason. He received a PhD in neuroscience from UCLA, and has a BA in philosophy from Stanford University. Here, he discusses meditation as a tool for personal evolution as opposed to a religious experience. As a teacher of Vedic Meditation, one of the things I tell my students is that meditation is for everyone, regardless of your religious (or secular) affiliations.




Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Are you a Fruit Loop or a Cheerio?



by Brooke Nisbet

In talking with my mentor and nutritionist, Julie Daniluk, I was reminded of the need for a daily meditation to help with stress busting. When I go to my friend’s house and draw spiritual cards, I often get the “meditation” card. When talking to other mentors or leaders in yoga and wellness, they ask if I have a daily meditation practice (knowing I should). Ugh… really?! Meditation again? Sigh. See the thing is, no matter how much I duck, dodge and fight it… meditation will keep being brought to my attention, because it is something that I really need in my life...


Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: An article from one of my dearest of friends and also former college roommate (which means we've been friends for over 25 years). We've both come a long way, baby.




Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: One of my most favorite and powerful mindfulness proliferators, Jon Kabat-Zinn, speaks on mindfulness in this simple yet powerful video. Move into the "actuality of your life"...



"I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word."

~Martin Luther King, Jr.




by Osho

It is the same, but with a slight difference. The emphasis is now not on the gap, but on the turning. The outgoing and ingoing breath make a circle. Remember, these are not two parallel lines. We always think of them as two parallel lines -- breath going in and breath going out...


Editor's Note: The 112 meditations of the Vigyan Vairabh Tantra revealed by Osho are considered some of the oldest treasures in connecting with the superconscious.

The more I practice mindful awareness, the more I learn what it is and what it isn't. What it isn't is hours spent in the lotus position, eyes closed, blissfully deep in meditation.

What it is is beautifully summed up by my husband, "It's the little things..."


Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: More and more I hear people saying, "Eden, I just can't commit to a regular meditation practice!!!" And, I find my old warrior-self starting to now relax where before I would be like... What do you mean!? Truly, if you can just start to bring in small moments of awareness each day... gosh, that would just be lovely. It would be lovely for the world and tiny steps are divine!!! Good ideas here.

Being an early riser by nature, I often get to see the sunrise. I am amazed at the beauty and perfection of nature. There is a wholeness and completeness to nature in all its glory. Earth is a great balancing act, a constantly self-regulating, intricate system. There is a self-maintenance system built into nature. A sunrise gives way to a busy day and a sunset brings rest to Mother Earth and causes it to become whole and complete...


Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Lovely article. Tis inspirational, in fact. Do you feel whole?



by Marlise Karlin

Conventional science has believed that our genetic inheritance is set in stone – that our DNA is what solely determines our health, personality traits and intelligence. Like a roll of the dice, you get what you came in with, and that’s it. Many people still believe this today. But, discoveries have been made that confound previous research; a simple change in environment can turn your genes on or off...


Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Meditation has been scientifically proven to alter genetic structure. So, as Marlise showcases it here... we each have the ability to change the "predisposed" and seemingly uncontrollable aspects of our lives based on our energy and thoughts. Read the studies on trauma, for example, and how it can affect the genetic makeup through generations. Powerful stuff.




Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: Nice introduction here. Please note that this video recommends practicing with your eyes open. If that fits you, go for it. There are some meditative practices where this is standard. I mostly practice with eyes closed but will sometimes shake it up and keep them open as it is more challenging for me. Also, they place hands down on their knees. There are many different hand positions or mudras. I always do hands up on my knees with fingers open and relaxed. This position says that I am open and ready to receive. This is something else you can experiment with as different positions feel different and your meditation experience will alter based on where your hands and fingers are placed.



by Sarah McLean

Meditation is really easy to learn and really easy to do. But sometimes when people try it at home without any guidance, they get frustrated because they notice they have many thoughts and they have the misconception that their minds have to be still to meditate correctly...


Editor's Note: As a meditation teacher, I get the comment "I have a short attention span, meditation is just too hard for me" and, of course, I get this prior to the person actually learning to meditate...
