Those who face life placidly and harmoniously do so admirably because of their level of deepened spirituality. My favorite, Gandhi was such a one. He said “In the attitude of silence the soul finds the path in an clearer light, and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness. Our life is a long and arduous quest after Truth.” Those who know the truth have cultivated inner peace...
Editor's Note: Many who teach meditation do so with the hope that it will generate world peace. Sounds lofty, but the truth is that world peace begins with each individual. As Gandhi also said, "We must become the change we want to see in the world."

Many of us hear that we need to 'love' ourselves more. Of course it's true, but what stumps us is HOW. How do I love myself more when I feel like crap? When I'm depressed? When I don't like how I am? When people keep rejecting me? When nothing's going my way? When I have so much else to do?!!!
Editor's Note from Nicholas Pepe: How can we cultivate a practice of self-love? Krista Mitchell shows us how, utilizing Affirmations, Meditation, inner-child and more.

In the last few years, a remarkable number of books, workshops, and teacher trainings have included the words “Yoga Therapy” in their titles. And yet, all Yoga, from poses to meditation to kindness, may be said to be therapeutic: cleansing, calming, strengthening, and at its most essential, promoting union of body, [breath,] mind, and spirit.

For some, meditation is a scary idea. I can't meditate. I cannot stop the thoughts from running through my mind. I am too easily distracted. I cannot sit still. I don't have time! What if the phone rings? What if the kids cry? Sound familiar? For just a moment, step back from all your preconceived notions of what meditation is and what it requires, and look at it with a new eye...
Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Prana is the life force or energy designated by Ayurveda. The regulation of prana throughout the body and the mind is termed pranayama. One type of Ayurvedic meditation linked to Yoga is pranayama. Dr. John Douillard uses the pranayama "bastrika," to increase oxygen to the brain and calm the nervous system to allow a meditative state for the body and mind. This one minute technique is a very powerful, quick and easy way to rejuvenate yourself on a daily basis. Enjoy!
