Swimming in Love

August 30, 2010 By: Allison Stillman Category: Living with Intention, Mind Body Spirit, Travel

Every summer, I am graced with the privilege of taking a group of lucky folks to the Bahamas for an annual retreat called Swimming in Love. The annual pilgrimage started out with the marriage to my beloved, and has grown into a spiritual retreat and immersion into love. We both had spent years leading wild dolphin swims, he in the Caribbean and me in Hawaii. When we came together we decided that when we took our marriage vows, we wanted it to happen during a week of swimming with wild dolphins. Read more »

Medicine = Perspective

Catnip-blossom-th

I first heard the call of the plant kingdom about three years ago. A late summer drive back up to my western Massachusetts college town from NYC had me smelling and feeling things I was not accustomed to. “I think the trees have something to say to me this autumn,” I divulged to my friend. I had no idea that I was about to embark on a journey that would awaken me to the wonder of all flora, large and small. I hadn’t a clue about the medicine that existed all around me. Read more »


Boundaries, Self-Esteem and Magic!

August 25, 2010 By: Janna Chin Category: Conscious Relationship, Living with Intention, Mind Body Spirit

Picket-Fence-th

Boundaries are the invisible lines that separate you from me. Boundaries are limits we set for ourselves to keep us emotionally, physically, and spiritually safe. Sad to say, but many people don’t know anything about boundaries because it’s not something learned in school and is rarely talked about in social circles. Prestigious universities and higher institutions of learning don’t teach boundaries as a subject, yet it’s an essential component to health and success. Read more »


Seeing Clearly: Attachments and the Thing in the Test Tube

“Attachment is a residue of pleasant experience.  Aversion is a residue of suffering.” – Patanjali, The Yoga-Sutra.

I have the broken off tip of a number 2 pencil in a test tube on my desk.  It’s 7.5 mm long and for the last 21 years it’s been buried under the skin of my left forearm.  I had it brought to the light of day on the 20th anniversary of the death of the person who put it there, my younger brother Patrick.

Lyeda

Fairy_land_Edward-Reginald-Frampton-th

As she showers her love over me, her strawberry blond hair blows in the late night wind. The fairy seems to glow with beauty. Her baby face is only ever seen with a smile on it. Her name is one spoken with only love and gratitude. Her name is Lyeda, though most call her Queen. Read more »

Deep Listening: Coming Home to our Essential Nature

When I make a decision, especially whenever I set an intention for a habit I want to lose or cultivate, the turning point of actually making the choice is similar to waking up fully refreshed on a crisp, sunny day. Where I am and where I’m heading are crystal clear. Arriving at this new dawn might be the culmination of a gradual sneaking suspicion that something just wasn’t right, or the sum product of several significant experiences added together over time. Or it may come like a clap of thunder in an instant revelation – literally waking me up to a new day with a whole new perspective. Read more »

The Geese are Flying South

August 16, 2010 By: Sherry Ruth Anderson Category: Aging With Grace and Glory, Sherry Anderson

7-blue-geese-flying-th

As I wake up this morning, it takes a little while to remember where I am. I sit up in bed, pulling the quilt around me against the damp, and wait. Here it comes: the hills above Half Moon Bay. Old growth redwoods drip through the front window, and in the distance, fog rises off the Pacific. Wild geese, moving across the sky like a pack of barking dogs, are heading…where? What month is this? I wait again. Read more »
