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.

“The tao that can be told
is not the eternal Tao;
The name that can be named
is not the eternal Name.
The unnamable is the eternally real...
Editor's Note from David Arenson: I had dreamed of China long before I set eyes on its shores. There's something unknown and perhaps unknowable about China – and I resolved to find this hidden essence in Tai Chi, the ancient Chinese internal martial art, as much moving meditation as self-defence. Find out more about my adventures in the ancient land.

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?
Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: OMG, so many awesome videos out there that are just getting me all choked up. Watch.. sniffle... feel good!

A question that has long drawn my attention appears at first glance to be quite simple: what is money? I’ve come to the feel that it is a collective thought...
Editor's Note: Ken McLeod raises some necessary questions about the problems that money can create and some simple ways to look into how advertising can lull us into a reactive state. It's hard not to read the piece without coming to new questions: Do we use money as an attempt to make ourselves feel more real? What do we value and why is that so? This article also mentions several other authors who go into the subject in greater depth. Thanks Ken!
Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: This video made me totally tear up as I thought of all the women who could relate to this powerful piece, and I'm sure my female students would agree as we have had many discussions in class about learning to love ourselves. Just watch and and remember that meditation teaches you to embrace the beauty of yourself on the inside and out. Tis a freeing process.
Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche is the head of the Shambhala Buddhist lineage, a spiritual and family lineage that descends through his family, the Mukpo clan. “Rinpoche” is an honorary title which means “precious one.” The Shambhala teachings, both the secular and the Buddhist variations, emphasize the basic goodness of all beings and teaches the art of courageous warriorship based on wisdom and compassion. As a contemporary teacher, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche uses contemporary music to extend his message.

Inspiration is the soul radiating its energetic light on all that we see. When the heart is blocked and the mind confused, our life view becomes distorted through tunnel vision, with only faint light ahead...
Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: Meditation teaches us to live from the heart in turn allowing us to move more smoothly and gracefully through the despair that Julie speaks of. Read her nurturing words.
