An invitation to transformation

transformational experienceOn February 24-25, 2018, John Kralovec and I will be facilitating a workshop at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Massachusetts designed for transformation:

A Shaman’s Pathway to the Divine

Shamanism in today’s world

Many people are fascinated by shamanism. But I believe what they really seek is a direct connection with a higher power [the Divine] and a way to experience that connection in every day life. This is what we teach.

The Ancients were masters of harmony, balance and caring for Mother Earth. Now is the time the ancient teachings are being revealed because they are needed more than ever.

Why we should stop before starting

stop before startingIn today’s hurry-up world, people often start the day in a rush so as to get everything done. But I’d like you to consider why we should stop before starting anything.

Clearing, balancing, reviewing will actually give you a better start to the day, or any activity, than rushing into it.

Here are some examples of stopping before starting:

  • Chanting “Om” before yoga
  • Athletes who do “mental rehearsal” visualizations before performing
  • Pausing before speaking so you can take a breath and exhale, re-energizing your body and mind
  • Before answering a question, stop and consider how you want to answer rather than give an answer you’ll regret
  • Take time to access your inner guidance
  • Start and end every endeavor with a smile, a teaching from the Maya

Winter Solstice: the time to increase our light

This year the Winter Solstice is Thursday, December 21, 11:28 am Eastern Standard Time.

It’s the shortest day of the year because there are fewer daylight hours than any other day.

But the good news is that from this point, daylight will get longer day by day.

The Ancients, and still many indigenous people today, mark this day with bonfires to celebrate the return of the light. It’s also a way of inviting the return of the light.

It’s the Law of Attraction at work.

There is a lot of suffering and confusion in the world right now, so this is a really good time for us to pull ourselves up and let our own light shine, too.

The Christmas Book Flood. Why not here?

christmas book flood

In Iceland, books are the traditional Christmas gift as part of  the “Christmas Book Flood.” Books educate, inform, delight and inspire, and we can all use some of that.

Meanwhile, here in the U.S. in the past week, many people have been promoting their products for Black Friday and Cyber Monday and, even though I have books and courses to sell, I didn’t do any of that.

I missed it, rather intentionally. And while Thanksgiving used to be my favorite holiday, I’ve become rather put off by the focus on food and shopping.

On Thanksgiving, the fourth Thursday of every November here in the U.S., we supposedly give thanks for all we have, then the next day run out to buy more stuff that we don’t really need.

Some stores even open on Thanksgiving day for people to start their shopping — I boycott those stores year round!

To add insult to injury, the Thanksgiving Holiday was founded on a lie: the lie that happy Pilgrims and Native Americans feasted together to give thanks for the Pilgrims making it through a hard winter.

The truth is that the first Thanksgiving was proclaimed by the Governor of Massachusetts in 1637 to celebrate the safe return of an armed militia which slaughtered 700 Pequot Indians. The nice story we’ve been handed down through generations is a work of fiction.

Regardless of that history, the idea of a Day of Thanks is a good one, and one we should all take to heart.

But back to the concept of Holiday shopping:
