A simple act of love

I recently spoke at an event about Happiness and guided the audience through this simple act of love. I share this guided meditation in this blogpost for you to try. Not only do the people who receive love receive a healing and even a protective layer around them from an energetic standpoint. But the person sending the love also receives a healing too. Try it for yourself!

The Purpose of Living in Community

“Why would anyone want to live in community?” some of you may be thinking. “Seems kind of hippy dippy.” others may be thinking. Do I think community is beneficial for everyone? Yes. Do I think it’s challenging? Yes. Most importantly living in community is a spiritual gym. How compassionate can we be when someone eats our last banana? Community is the perfect barometer to measure where we are on the spiritual journey. It provides us with the perfect container to continue to grow and evolve into our brightest selves.

It begins with compassion–the greatest love of all...

Are you limiting love in your life? 7 ways to STOP

I am guilty of limiting love in my life in all of these ways at some point or another.

The Fine Line Between Judgement and Observation

To create even more peace and harmony with ourselves and others, we can choose to operate from a place of observation with love and compassion, instead of jugment. This is best serving for all, regardless of the circumstances. So how do we distinguish judgement from observation? How do we shift into a space of compassionate observer?

5 Reasons to Retreat

Sometimes I feel amazement when I examine my life and I wonder, “How did I get here?” I’ve come to realize that all of my major life changing decisions happened while I was retreating. I can vividly remember the exact moment I chose to leave western medicine. It was on a vacation during my first year of residency. I was sitting on the beach, retreating at an Ashram in the Bahamas. Crystal blue waters sparkled in front of me as I looked out to the sea beyond my happy, sand covered toes. I felt at peace with a journal, pen in hand, and I vividly saw my future unfolding before me.

Your family is meant to push your buttons

How is your relationship with your family? Before we chose to incarnate this lifetime, we choose our family. We choose certain experiences to provide us with opportunities for growth. Family is one of our greatest teachers this lifetime because we are stuck with them for our entire life. Sure, you can choose to stop speaking to family, but ultimately they share the same DNA. No matter what, you are tied to your family. Are you paying attention to the lessons they are teaching you?

I See You

Yesterday I was sitting on the train talking Spanglish to an American guy visiting from Colombia. I met him at a 5 rhythms dance class, and after telling me about his interesting life, he commented on my presence in the class, “While everyone was dancing around all crazy, you were moving to your own beat in the corner of the room looking out the window connecting with the sunset.” As I looked into his eyes, I felt that he could see me. He knew more about me than words could say and I began to cry.

You Are My Guru

I’m a free spirit. That means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. Yesterday, lying under a tree seeking refuge from the sun, a handsome photographer told me about Plato’s The Allegory of the Caves, and it sparked a sense of deeper compassion for every person I meet. I live in a cave that is a creation of my life experiences. No two caves are the same and thus the way I experience life and define free spirit is likely different from yours.

Community has been entering into my field lately. You may be wondering what this idea of “community” even means and why it matters? Well, maybe community is the answer to create a more enriching life. Community may be an important component of our individual wellbeing and a good thing for society at large.
