Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Nice visual summary of the chakras - where they are and what they support. All meditation or mindfulness practices work on these energy portals whether the work is conscious or not. Please see the original chart at this link.

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...

 

Meditation 


by Marsha Lucas, PhD

If you tend to be critical of yourself for not practicing meditation frequently enough... regularly enough... long enough... [fill in the blank] enough... I can tell you with absolute certainty that you have a lot of company...

 

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: Meditation is a gift. There for you whenever you want it, need it... not demanding, not pressuring, not judging. Like the most idyllic parent. Dr. Lucas talks here about greeting any resistance to maintaining a consistent meditation practice with kindness and appreciation. And, these words of wisdom broaden to any area of your life where you are feeling a push or strain.

Meditation


by Richard Ebbs

Let your body decide how to move. Let all of parts your body be loose. If at any stage you want to close your eyes, that's fine too as long as you keep an awareness of what your body is doing...

 
Editor's Note: A movement meditation allows the dynamism of the energy to harmoniously align the body and the mind. For some people this works better than other meditations.
 
 
 

Meditation


by Eden Kozlowski,
ATH Meditation Co-Editor

As a teacher of meditation and mindfulness, I am seeing more and more that any moments of awareness we can give ourselves during the day can be powerful and redirect us to a less stressed and more connected place. This can happen whether you commit to a sit down session of mindful breathing OR simply take a minute to notice what is around you with purpose and clarity. Big steps or small steps; they are all steps...

 

 

Meditation


by Eden Kozlowski,

ATH Co-Editor of Meditation

In doing my meditation/mindfulness work, I meet many folks who focus much of their thought, mind and spirit on being positive. Most would think this is a total, kick butt way to live. There are even companies, websites and Facebook pages committed to the upbeat idea.

So, here comes Debbie Downer (that’s me) to tell ya that pursuing positivity can actually foster the opposite. Ooo, negativity! Hiss! Boo!...

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: What is an incredibly effective way of reducing your chance of depression and stopping it from recurring? Mindfulness! What is one of the best methods of reducing stress and anxiety? Mindfulness!! How do you change your negative thinking?? Mindfulness!!! Watch this video with Dr. Mark Williams of Oxford University and see what an eight year study has proven to be globally true.

 

Meditation


by V.N. Mittal, MA

Meditation is all about visualization, focus, awareness and communing with the Divine. From novices to expert meditators, all seem to employ these elements in their practice of meditation in one form or the other. These factors are also an essential part of any art form...

 

 

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Art and meditation. It is about connecting with something bigger... creating... flowing... opening. Ahhhhh...

 

Meditation


 

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Stress, stress, stress. Interesting statistics shown here. Can you relate to any of these stress figures? And, check out the part that talks about your brain actually shrinking and atrophying under stress. Youch, better go meditate!

 

Meditation


by Sofia Reddy

A few weeks ago, I attended my first weekend of silence retreat. When I told my friends, they were in awe. Probably more like disbelief. They couldn’t believe that I would go three days without any electronic equipment or talking to anyone...

 

 

 

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: I really dig lesson number five. Give it a try.

 

Meditation


by Kip Mazuy

Let yourself relax
into this moment.

Give up trying to make
this moment
any different than it is...

 

Editor's Note: The most wonderful part of Kip's work is that he talks to the heart in his writings, his guided meditations and most of all his music. Prepare to enjoy...
