Putting Practice into Words: Summer (Yoga) Poetry Project

In wading into the slower, daydreamy rhythm of summer, I’ve been reminded that one of the avenues for my own learning–one of the ways in which yoga happens for me–is through writing. I love the ways in which putting words on a page creates a sense of conversation, even if I’m not immediately sure who that conversation is happening with. But the partners in

You Minus Sugar: The First Three Days

Okay, to lay out some basic details: the first three days of the detox program I’ll be following are the most stringent. It’s basically protein (in the form of chicken, fish, turkey, red meat, tofu, tempeh, beans, nuts and seeds) vegetables (minus a few high-sugar veggies like beets, carrots, summer squash, sweet potatoes–thankfully, these come back into the mix very soon), and fats (olive

Love What You Do

My nine year-old recently initiated a conversation in this manner: “hey, Mom–have you ever thought about all the different measurements of time, and how many there are? But then you realize that it’s also just one big TIME? It kind of blows your mind.”Um…yes. It does kind of blow my mind. As any working parent (er, make that any parent) knows, time is simultaneously

Dharma & Karma: Whats Yours?

Someone asked me recently, as we were talking about dharma, “how do you know when you have found your path?”  I shared my experience of getting chills the entire time and having tears sting my eyes for hours when I attended my first lecture on Ayurveda.
