Meditation

A Tantric Weekend

A Tantric Weekend

I just spent the full weekend blissfully immersed in the teachings of Tantra.  No, not the sexualized Western idea of Tantra full of unleashed desire, kinky sex, incense, and orgies.  I’m talking about original Tantra - the deeply spiritual tradition that draws the Vedic teachings of expanding consciousness and transcending the limits of body and mind into practice.

Linear vs. Lateral Thinking & how Meditation can help!

Linear vs. Lateral Thinking & how Meditation can help!

When we think about different ways of perception and processing, we can split the approaches into 2 categories - Linear and Lateral.  Both are very important components of how we process information, problem solve, and create.  Linear thinking is related to our left brain functioning, and lateral thinking is related to our right brain.

In today’s culture, we place a very heavy emphasis on linear thinking.  This throws us off balance, and leaves us both disconnected and wanting for the creative and novel lateral approach.  Meditation is an incredible practice for bringing us back in touch with the right brain, lateral thinking.  

Love Yourself Like it's Your Job!

Love Yourself Like it's Your Job!

Do you prioritize yourself?  I mean really put yourself first?

Chances are, if you're like most of us the real answer is probably not.

We tend to think of self care as a hobby.  Something we dabble in when the mood strikes us or when we have some space in our life that we didn't expect.
