  • the lord’s club
    There’s an old story I remember from my ashram days — Saturday evenings were the time that the Lord’s gathered. As they entered  the clubhouse, each Lord reached into a deep shiny top hat and retrieved a piece of paper. Some weeks the paper said, “dishwasher.” Other days, “chef,” “president” or sometimes “guest.” You see, [...]
  • Dance Like No One’s Watching
    “What the hell; you are what you are, and self honesty occupies a definite and vital part in the ever-growing process to become a real human being and not a plastic one.”   ~Bruce Lee Who knew that Bruce Lee was such a wise yogi?

From my point of view, what greater gifts [...]
  • The Dance of Mindfulness & Thanksgiving
    This time of year, many of us in the U.S. turn towards the practice of thanks giving –giving thanks. For me, this comes down to a very simple yet fruitful practice, mindfulness. Being mindfully thankful for the simplest gifts of life coupled with sense awareness not only gifts me with the Presence in the present [...]
  • Moments of Transcendent Awareness
     The sun streamed through the late southern summer afternoon in golden rays. And, there I stood in front of my grandmother’s mirror. It seemed huge and somehow magical to me. This was not the first time I stood in front of that mirror. My grandmother often placed me in front of that mirror and told [...]
