Live A Life You're Proud Of

It’s only when we start to awaken the master within that we can step out of the nightmare we have been living in - that one that we scripted out of fear and a scarcity mind-set that keeps us focused only on “me and mine” in the here and now.

The 2024 Upgrade

Whatever you have on repeat becomes  your reality - what you look at every day, your thoughts, what you read, what you listen to, talk about and tell yourself.  It’s a sort of “repetition reality".” It’s also why repeating affirmations is so effective and why looking at a vision board over and over again is […]

Content Over Packaging

Becoming the Silent Witness

When we meditate, what we are practicing is learning how to remain in a permanent state of consciousness. We’re trying to break our old patterns of running from the present moment or being hijacked by our thinking mind.

The Importance of Setting Intentions

Some of us mistake setting intentions with goal-setting. There’s no time like the new year where that becomes more glaringly apparent.  As we move further into the year, we may have noticed that those things we wanted to change about ourselves or our habits this year haven’t yet begun to materialize.  Why is that? Goals […]

Mindfulness Practice

Here’s a great practice to incorporate to bring mindfulness into your daily life. Essentially, it’s “meditation in action.” I like to say that when we meditate on the cushion each day, it’s more of our “formal practice” but that the rubber hits the proverbial road when we are out in the world practicing mindfulness and […]

Suffering Only Occurs in the Present Moment

Part 2 of 4 Last week, we discussed the very foundation of Buddhist teachings, the Four Noble Truths (see Part One of this series to get caught up!).
