The body feels tired and weak after a nasty virus. The mind is dull, working very hard to take me away from center. My work is to simply observe with a quality of detachment and non participation. This is freedom. What will your practice be this week? Namaste, Prerna Vasárnap délutáni merengés A test fáradtnak … Continue reading Sunday afternoon musings

Kindness to Self Weekend

Many of my conversations this week revolved around how we as a human race are incapable of being kind to ourselves.

Create Order

Create order in your thoughts My one ‘go to’ practice this week has been to stay as an observer to my thoughts.

SAT CHITTA ANANDA

The 3 words that come up for me this evening as I write this weekend’s post after a few challenging weeks are "Sat Chitta Ananda," which represents "existence/truth, consciousness, and bliss" and is a description for the subjective experience of the ultimate, unchanging reality in Hinduism. I have consciously and rigorously practiced staying equanimous in … Continue reading SAT CHITTA ANANDA
