#34 April 2015 – Sacred Space

Sacred Space “[Sacred Space] is an absolute necessity for anybody today You must have a room, or a certain hour or so a day, where you don’t know what was in the newspapers that morning, you don’t know who your friends are, you don’t know what you owe anybody, you don’t know what anybody owes to you. This is a place where you can simply experience and bring forth what you are and what you might be. This is the place of creative incubation. At first you may find that nothing happens there. But if you have a sacred place…

#28 October 2014 -Yoga and Me

Yoga and Me One year ago, I decided to take a break from yoga. I didn’t love the practice any more despite developing a solid practice over many years. Of course I knew that yoga was good for me but my relationship with yoga had become one of ‘must’.  I needed to practice; I had to practice. When I stopped teaching, I didn’t feel compelled to practice. I stopped attending workshops, and didn’t feel the pressure to keep it up. I rested as much as I needed and did only what I felt like. Some days, I felt resistance. Some…

#23 May 2014 – An Ethical Journey

An Ethical Journey As I grow in my understanding of Buddhism, I often wonder if Buddhism is a religion, a philosophy or a way of life? I have asked trusted spiritual friends and religious teachers, garnering a variety of sound, insightful perspectives. Amidst different perspectives, the path is clear. There is a strong commitment amongst all to live ethically in accordance to the silas (virtues or morality) of right speech, right action and right livelihood.  The Dhammapada puts it simply -“Do no evil, Do good, Purify the mind; This is the teaching of all Buddhas.” It’s seems straightforward and easy,…
