Adho Mukha Svanasana or Downward Facing Dog
An inversion pose such as the downward facing dog causes a temporary increase in blood circulation to the head. This increased blood flow triggers the body's calming mechanism, which slows the heart rate and respiration. Initiate the downward dog by balancing with your hands and knees on the ground. Your knees should be directly underneath your hips, while your hands should sit just…Continue

We spend our formative years in school, developing our rational minds, but our emotions receive no formal attention. High divorce rates, job loss, employment stress, accidents, deaths, personal struggles, changing hormones, financial problems and health issues challenge everyone’s emotional health. Yet, as a society we stubbornly treat the…Continue
How does one go about having a property valued at over $8M gifted to a cause? It starts with a desire, a belief in something for the highest good. At least that is how it started for SWSI. SWSI is the acronym for Sweet Water Sustainability Institute which is located on a 144 acre historic former boarding school campus located near the base of the southern Appalachian Mountains.

We are in a constant state of change and flux. Are you feeling it? Evolutionary progression is happening every minute and certainly during the last 4 years it feels like the Universe has put her foot on the growth accelerator and we are doing our best to hang on as the changes come thick and fast. Our body’s cells are in a constant state of birth and death and the cycle of life takes us through day and night, good and bad, happy and sad. Phew!
The symptoms of accelerated growth appear…Continue

Doing some miscellaneous reading the other day, I happened on to a passage that said “while tomatoes are a fruit (scientifically) we mustn’t put them in a fruit salad!”
It set me to thinking. Why not? What awful thing would happen if the two were to meet in a fruit salad? Would their various components attack each other? Have we ever actually tried the two together? Or is it simply that we have learned that this combination is unacceptable practice or incorrect…Continue

But they have raised no cry
I wonder why

"Life on Earth has been a history
of interaction between living
things and their surroundings."
When early man settled an area that allowed plant life to flourish, agricultural societies prospered allowing for the pursuit of higher ideas. In areas where grain could thrive, civilizations grew, cultivating religion with man's evolving ability to sense the changing seasons and note the motions of the celestial bodies.

Responding to an unfilled need for credit for local government, local businesses and consumers, three states in the last month have introduced bills for state-owned banks -- Oregon, Washington and Maryland – joining Illinois, Virginia, Massachusetts and Hawaii to bring the total number to seven.
While Wall Street is reporting record profits, local banks are floundering, credit for small businesses and consumers remains tight, and local…Continue

Cold and Flu Season or is it?
How many times have we heard that it is cold and flu season, and isn't it interesting that it rolls around in late February and early March? Why is this? While it is true there does seem to be a lot of people with cold symptoms in late winter, it has more to do with an individuals personal impaired immunity than any additional germs flying around.…Continue

Last month I discovered an obscure holiday called Random Acts of Kindness Week that starts around February 14th. Now this seems appropriate since St. Valentine’s Day is supposedly based on the martyred saints who around 200 AD performed marriages for soldiers ordered by the Roman Emperor to remain single. Their acts weren’t necessarily random but they were based on kindness and service.
Today service, or Seva, as we say in Sanskrit, is essential for one’s transformation,…Continue

The photon energy that is produced by the sun is clean, abundant and available to everyone free of charge. In the space of one second, our sun produces enough energy for almost 500,000 years of the current needs of our civilization. The light that is emitted from the sun contains photons, or heat, and when these photons are captured by solar paneling the energy can be…

Our words matter. Our spoken words, felt with our deep emotion, can act as a decree (words spoken with emotion). The next time you are with your friends, count the number of times they may use words that are not empowering. You might be surprised how many times you may hear decrees such as “I am not”, “I can not”, and “I do not want to be”. We most likely repeat these similar patterns in our dialogues as well. It is just a bit easier to see the patterns in others!
