As a sensitive person, I often struggle to publicly and openly take sides on things. On issues, on causes, in arguments. This is not because I don’t have an opinion, or even strong opinions – quite the opposite, in fact. I have a whole ship-load of opinions. I share them with my friends, my fiancee, my…

The Urban Mystic Gets New Ink 1

November 19, 2014

I haven’t always loved tattoos. In fact, when I was little, I thought they made people looked scary. And kind of dirty. I grew up in Utah, where I was presented with two extremes: a majority LDS culture (a clean cut, modesty-loving, family-values culture) and a tattoo-sporting, ski-on-Sunday, booze-and-cussing counter-culture. And, of course, I didn’t fit in…

What does yoga have to do with happiness? Everything. We often think that yoga is a way to learn to be more flexible, to build strong bodies and to teach us how to breath again. Or maybe we recognize that there is some sort of philosophical system that guides us toward enlightenment or nirvana. And…

This week, I made a huge transition. I moved out of my part time job and into running my business full time. I know, right? Wow! And being as I am, I thought that I would gracefully float into my new life as a full-time small business owner. I thought that my daily schedule would…

April 6, 2012

It’s only April, but already 2012 is living up to its expectations as a year of change.  Not in the earth shattering, natural disaster, end-of-days type of change that has been such a popular drama in the media lately.  Instead, what I’ve been noticing is a pattern of destruction and rebirth.  Destruction of old habits,…

This fall season is flying by, and my life has sped up with it.  I didn’t mean to leave such a cliff hanger last post.  Most of you know that my brain scan came back clean, so there is nothing wrong with my brain after all.  Well, physically, at least  🙂  But as the wind…

I finished up Purva Karma almost two weeks ago, and I’m still reflecting on all I learned from the experience.  One of the coolest things that happened to me was not physical — it was the great expansion in my creativity.  For the last few months, I’ve felt stuck creatively, which rarely used to happen,…

How big is your pile? 0

October 21, 2010

I’m back to the blog after more than a month. I wish I was driven to write more.  I want to be able to write a blog everyday, or every other day, but honestly, at this time in my life I’m just not that inspired. I’d rather my blog be meaningful than sounding like a…

How do you speak to your body? Do your conscious thoughts toward your body match your unconscious thoughts? Every time you get a compliment and reply, “Thanks,” is your body able to absorb that positive attention, or does your inner dialogue feed negative talk into the tissues and cells of your body?   I haven’t…
