Rethink Your Depression (For open minds only)

mariannequote
What if I told you depression is not a chemical condition, it’s a spiritual one? These sentiments, I’ve felt for some time, were shared by Marianne Williamson in last night’s talk, Tears to Triumph at the Marble Collegiate Church here in NYC. With a whole heck of a lot more street cred, I was thrilled to hear her say many... Read More

External Goals: Never add up to enough

I couldn’t believe it when this “first cover mockup” popped up on my FB memory this week. It’s only been three years!! I let it sink in for a few moments: Oh my God. So much has happened in three years. I distinctly remember the fear and vulnerability I was feeling during these summer months, 2013. I honestly felt like... Read More

Born For This!

I attended a Gabby Bernstein¬†event Friday night with Yoga Journal Live after what felt like the longest day ever. I had a 45 min keynote in the morning that I was up at 5:30AM preparing for, and then I had six straight sessions back-to-back of drug and alcohol discussions with high school students at Dwight. Gabby’s theme for the evening... Read More

I was thrilled to soak up some Vit-D today. That’s always my biggest gripe about winter: not enough light! After my dear friend, Dara, and I completed the 3-ish mile loop run around Prospect Park, we parted ways and I went in search of a park bench flooded with sunshine. Honestly, my meditation has been shit lately. I was excited... Read More

Each week since I began my 2016 yoga goal of flexibility, I’ve written in my Five Minute Journal that I wish I was doing more of it. The daily question: How could today have been better? more often than not is answered with, “yoga.” Now that I’m doing it at home with Do Yoga With Me.com, I have much more... Read More

Emotional Freedom Technique: Relive it right, the good, the bad, the ugly

rash
I once did an EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) Tapping session with a friend; she’d just learned the technique. EFT is a form of psychological acupressure, based on the same energy meridians used in traditional acupuncture to treat physical and emotional ailments for over five thousand years, but without the invasiveness of needles. Sitting on her living room floor, we began... Read More
