Meditation on the five elements of the body is an old tradition which is used primarily to loosen the grasping at the self. In Tai Chi these elements take the form of animals and their corresponding organs.
Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: "Stop resisting and start embracing everything you feel!" Just flow, baby! Awesome video on the five emotions, and what drives and inspires us.
Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: This purification meditation cleanses away any negative thought patterns, and allows you to connect and balance your crown chakra. Enjoy!

That thought there…touch it and let it go.
Our plates are not trash. They are beautiful. I am glad.
Lovely oral sensations bursting with strong flavors...
Editor's Note from David Pratt: This simple and beautiful poem was a spontaneous composition by teachers and students in the last class of a Contentment and Everyday Life course at the Shambhala Meditation Center of Columbus, Ohio. The piece is as refreshing as a juicy pear, with lines like "with soil, water, sun, love - it all grows," and "I take one bite. My stories take two." You can almost hear them crunching their lunchtime crackers...

Editor's Note from David Arenson: The grounding core of sacred living is the elevation of the mundane, and the upliftment of the human experience into something grand.
Editor's Note: Jamaican-born Mooji (Anthony Paul Moo-Young) is a direct disciple of Sri Harilal Poonja, the renowned advaita master, or Papaji, as his followers call him. Mooji's direct, non-dual teachings are faithful to this powerful lineage. Enjoy!

The type of meditation I teach is Vedic meditation. It comes from a tradition that stretches back into the mists of pre-history. I did not choose it for the long-livedness of its existence; rather, after trying many other forms of meditation and/or mind-soothing, mind-control or concentrative techniques, this was something that actually worked...
Editor's Note: All of us have our own story to tell about the spiritual path we have found ourselves following. Jeff Kober, a teacher of Vedic Meditation in Los Angeles, CA has decided this year to share his path with readers everyday in a 365 "Vedic Meditation Thought for the Day." These reflect on the Vedic worldview that "All is One" and while that seems heady stuff, the series is infused with a sense of humility and humor.

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...
