In the early summer of 1997, my husband and I found ourselves in the backyard of an empty house on a quiet street in Sierra Madre, a suburb of Los Angeles. The backyard was Southern California’s oldest private Japanese garden, an oasis of ponds and pines that had stood mostly intact since 1916...


Editor's Note from Natalie Jovanic: Some years ago, I got attracted to do Zen meditation after reading a book. At the beginning, I meditated at home, later in a Zen Center. Zen meditation has changed my perception about life. I have found compassion, gratitude and simplicity, and I am deeply grateful for that experience. Karen Maezen Miller's article describes beautiful principles that will detangle the complexities of your life and make it easier.




Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: So worth the 30 minutes. “Mindfulness is picking out the truth from all of the noise.” Dr. Jeffrey Schwartz (love his excitement), author of You Are Not Your Brain share’s a quarter century worth of research in neuroplasticity in this conference. Viewers are given a practical understanding of how the brain works, along with a four-step solution on how utilizing mindfulness can help rewire the brain. Listen to his passionate voice in saying we need a "cultural change" regarding the mind/brain. We do!!!... so watch on! PS - Dr. Schwartz states that he meditates one hour per day.




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!

What helps women to thrive in meditation, and in life? What kinds of meditation nourish the female body and soul, so that we can meet the world with renewed energy, clarity, and love? Why do so many women quit, often feeling bad about themselves because they "can’t" meditate?...


Editor's Note from David Pratt: These introductory lines by Camille Maurine give you a clear picture of what wild fruits are to be offered here - specifically for women. The great thing is, she has a whole book that expands on this short beginning...




Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: As stated in the video... "Research shows that stress is a major problem in our educational system." This urban school in San Francisco decided to go outside of the box (yay!!!) and teach their kids to meditate with the implementation of "Quiet Time" in 2007. See the amazing results documented in this video. Also, truancy is an unexcused school absence.





Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: Very lovely talk about mindfulness/meditation by former Buddhist monk, Andy Puddicombe. He mentions a research paper via Harvard that states that our minds are carried away in thought almost 46% of the time. This mind wandering is directly linked to the emotion of unhappiness. So, imagine - as he states - at least half of our lives being spent in this state of sadness. Of course, meditate to literally save the day!




Editor's Note from David Pratt: In just a few minutes both beginners and longtime beginners can pick up new guidance for sitting comfortably and staying comfortable. Plus, Larry gives a simple postural adjustment that is priceless. Short and very sweet!
