self compassion, happiness and deep relaxation

What makes you happy on the deepest level? You can cultivate the feeling of joy or contentment and grow that within you. Practice a guided visualization to move toward tranquility. Find balance through a 4x4 breath pattern. Then, work with a self compassion practice of accepting your disowned or shadow self. End with deep relaxation and a chant/prayer that all beings everywhere be happy and free from suffering.

Samskara: excavating and renovating your sunconcious mind

How do you overhaul your subconscious habits when they’re no longer serve you? In this live recording of a meditation session, we cover several techniques. Samskaras are the psychic grooves we create by thinking the same thoughts over and over. Our mind has the potential to shift to a different groove. You’ll try variations of three part breath, and chant the Sa Ta Na Ma meditation. Finally, enjoy a grounding relaxation to continue the process of healing your subconscious mind. The edit is a little choppy, since I cut voices to maintain the anonymity of the meditation group attendees.

Ahimsa: apply the yogic value of non-harming to your life

Yamas are the yogic values you can use as a guide in relationships. The first is Ahimsa: Non-harming of self and others. Where do you turn harm inward? How do you lash out or unconsciously cause harm? You’re not alone. Criticism, in my experience, doesn’t help. What has helped me develop empathy is self compassion, therapy, and, especially, meditation. Join me in this practice of unflinching self care.

Discharging Stress, Health, Happiness, Longing and Belonging

This meandering talk starts by examining tension, then asks what is health really? Happiness? We explore difficult emotions, reactivity, the limbic brain and the buffering effect of community. What would it be like to be seen in our wholeness?

I describe a grounding, restorative pose and a simple activity for discharging stress. Please join me!
