Omega Institute Mindfulness for Everyone
Once relegated to discussions in health food stores or New Age bookstores, today mindfulness is being talked about almost everywhere and by almost everyone.

Leanna spent most of his time in Fallujah hiding in various locations, working with improvised explosive devices, and looking for civilians who were making bombs. More

You know your yoga practice is working when your life gets better, not when your yoga gets better. You know who I’m talking about. Maybe this was you; maybe this is you—the mala bead wearing, namaste talkin', slightly arrogant, super neurotic, I-never-eat-meat-refined-flour-or-nonorganic-food type. The person who looks down on anyone who doesn’t do yoga, isn’t vegan, has “negative energy,” or has a corporate job. More
Omega Institute Still Not Manifesting Abundance? by Danielle MacKinnon
How Our Beliefs Affect Our Bank Accounts
I recently put out a question about where people have blocks around money to my friends on Facebook, and the response was overwhelming.
