I did Bikram yoga today from 6-7:15. I have to remember how connected I feel when I do my practice. Sitting with clients and healing others is my passion and when I treat myself like my client my energy expands. I am looking forward to creating more moments for myself and connecting in an even d ...

In the past I pushed away so many thoughts and emotions. In recent years I’ve had periods of sitting with the backlogs of these emotions, including fear, anger, masses of sadness and huge bundles of joy. Some have obviously been more pleasant to sit with than others but all have been helpful to ...

Acupressure is an interesting Asian treatment

35 minutes morning sit. Quick 10 minute sit after a day of running errands. 60 minutes evening sit; it's interesting what kinds of sensations occur during the longer sittings.

 This Friday is the Autumn Equinox, September 22nd, Mabon. 
 Mabon is a nice word. Say it out loud. There is a
 tone inherent in the sound - Ma-bon. 
 I played my drum this afternoon, for my seven minutes (Seven

Sitting - and bowing again. Towards the end there was a sense of 'something difficult' coming up but not yet what it is.

Morning sit. M.O.B. Back to work so lots of thoughts. Calmed down after a while.

I sat for 15 minutes. It was a little late. Approaching midnight. Occasionally I was beginning to drift off but tried to bring my attention back to my breathe. Feel refreshed after. Discovered that I was leaning too forward in previous sits to facilitate proper full breathing. Really felt my d ...

If you open a book, what do you hope to find? 
 Adventure? 
 Truth? 
 Entertainment? 
 Sleepy-time tea? 
 Words to live by? 
 Akashic Records, the library of the mind.
