Starting with the Truth

April 29, 2010 By: admin Category: Awakening Feminine, Feminine Wisdom, Teachers, Teachings, Video


For many of us the path of spiritual seeking begins with an uncomfortable or painful feeling. To move through it we must start wherever we are yet also we must know the truth of that place, the truth of how we feel. It might be a sense of being alone or afraid or disconnected that consumes our hearts and moves us to find a deeper, truer source of nourishment.

Yet how exactly do we begin?

How do we wake up and access our truth so that we may seek with authenticity the path that brings us everything we truly need to awaken and open our hearts with compassion?

What do you actually do?

In Starting with the Truth Sherry Anderson shares with us the secret to beginning, to getting beyond the stuck-ness of discomfort or pain. Click here to view (#2 in the list).

Mind-Body-Spirit Love Fest

April 26, 2010 By: celedra Category: Mind Body Spirit, Raw Food


I’m on my third week of P90X.  I’ve run marathons, done Bikram Yoga and a number of other exercise adventures.  Never has anything felt like this.  It must be the muscle confusion.  My body feels so alive and vibrating with transformation.  Dreams are more vivid and meditation more spacious.  Maybe it’s all the raw food dancing for joy inside my little cells!  Whatever it is, meditation,  a living food diet, and daily exercise are truly the three pillars of a daily Mind-Body-Spirit Love Fest for me.

Sacred Living and Daily Practice

April 24, 2010 By: Matsya Siosal Category: Living with Intention, Mantra, Malas, Meditation, Mind Body Spirit


It happens to all of us sometimes – waking up on the wrong side of the bed, a transient case of the blues, or a sudden flare of impatience that grips you with a blinding insistence.

With the pace of life moving faster and faster, many of us find it overwhelming to try to give adequate attention to all aspects of our busy lives. Our days are filled with email, telephone calls, doctors appointments, tennis lessons, meetings with clients, paying bills, grocery shopping, parent-teacher conferences, board meetings, cocktail parties whew – amid all of that it’s no wonder our souls resort to such drastic measures to get our attention.  Read more »

Instant Peace

April 23, 2010 By: Matsya Siosal Category: Teachers, Teachings, Video


One of the questions that drives us – and a question Celedra asks our Teachers is,

How, in the midst of all the demands of a busy life, do you touch the sacred within? How do you come home to that place of peace, again and again, moment to moment?

In this exclusive video, Lama Palden Drolma shares the techniques that allow her immediate access to the peace and calm always available within. Click here to view Touching the Sacred Within.

Featured Artist: Eileen Bradley

April 20, 2010 By: Matsya Siosal Category: Sacred Art


Welcome artist Eileen Bradley! Of her creative process Eileen says:

It is through meditation and spiritual practice that I see the symbolic imagery for my art. I am also influenced by designs and patterns found in nature, and in the art and architecture of other cultures throughout the ages.

As a visionary artist, it is my purpose and joy to create art that symbolically reflects spiritual truths and inspires people to connect with the divine.

Eileen’s passion is creating mandalas.

When creating a mandala, I begin my meditation by asking for the vision of a mandala to come through me. The colors, patterns, and arrangements begin to emerge in my mind’s eye.  And from that single quiet moment when the image first appears, to its transformation into a painting, I am a witness to the creation of a portal to the divine.

Visit Eileen’s page in our Sacred Art Gallery to read more about Eileen’s calling and to see a few more of her centering and inspiring mandalas. And stay tuned, additional pieces by Eileen will be available soon!


Raw food, P90X and Meditation

April 19, 2010 By: celedra Category: Mind Body Spirit, Raw Food


I love Tony Horton and I love what he has created.  There is something about his P90X workout that has inspired thousands of people, including me, to work our butts off (literally) every day for at least 60 minutes – and love it!  This week my favorite is Kenpo – so much fun.

Time.  It takes time to tend to our body, mind, spirit. Long ago I read a quote that said something like, “instead of letting time take me, I will take time”.  It’s kind of crazy really.  If we don’t take the time to prepare the best food, exercise our bodies and cultivate the true nature of mind ie. find inner peace, then we’re probably not going to live a long and vibrant life.
