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

Feeling “Meh,” and What to Do With It

At first Elisa and I thought it was summer brain, then it was the heat, and then it was the heaviness of the current state of country/world.

I often hear, “I’m not flexible.” Or, “my body doesn’t do yoga.” Elisa always says, “It’s boring!” I’ll be honest, it was an acquired taste for me too. It’s like the first time I drank vodka and spit it out. It wasn’t until I learned the amazing things it could do for me that I found a way to get... Read More

Nourishment: What we need more of and how it will change us

kat hurley, wife, elisa haggarty, kitten, guatemala
This could be food, drink, noise, TV/news, energy at home/office, social media, literally EVERYTHING we take in is what I consider nourishment. All this stuff, is it nourishing you or depleting you? I look for healthy organic foods, for instance, to nourish me, thought provoking articles, books, podcasts to nourish me, breath work, sleep, meditation and movement (running, walking, biking,...
