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 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 Ellie Peterson

How is it possible to write my own thoughts down on paper while being consciously unaware of what my hand is writing? This was my first journaling experience; it was poignant and powerful. While at a healing retreat, we were asked to go to a quiet place alone and write a letter forgiving someone who had hurt us.

 

Editor's Note from Barbara Lazarony: Take a page out of Ellie's journal, you can forgive yourself too!

Healing Recipes


by Silvia Mordini

And so you might ask, what’s the difference in practicing outside? I remember the first international yoga retreat I attended as a student where we were outside the entire time and the surprises I encountered...

 

Editor's Note: In this piece, Silvia Mordinin, RYT, first gives some well thought out practical tips about practing yoga outside. For example, think about whether you'll be in the sun and what you'd want to wear to be protected.

Yoga


by Dr. Donna Rockwell, PsyD, LP

"My husband went off to do a retreat and came home and said, “Syl, this is great. You should try it.” I did a two-week retreat and I did not have amazing meditation states. Mainly, I had a headache and my body hurt a lot. But my headache finally went away and I calmed down a little bit..."

 

Editor's Note from David Pratt: This is part 3 of a 4 part interview that Donna Rockwell did with multiple well-known meditation teachers. In this interview she talks with Sylvia Boorstein, who shares the ways in which meditation has helped her celebrate life and drop fear. See Part 1 and Part 2.

Interviewed by Allysyn Kiplinger


Betty-Ann Kissilove

Here’s a great example of one woman’s artistic expression of the new cosmology. I first met Betty-Ann at a retreat about the new cosmology with Dr. Brian Swimme in California in 1999. Her playful wit and intense curiosity about the nature of the universe are beautifully presented in her new book called “Great Ball of Fire! A Poetic Telling of the Universe Story” (Mearth Press, 2010). I was recently able to speak with her about this newly published epic poem, as well as inquire about her inspiration and her thoughts about cosmology...
