Strange to imagine, but we're already at the mid-spring holiday—Beltane. After April Fool's Day, it's my favorite ”special” day of the year, as it makes such a lovely point: of honoring the Earth and women as part of the divine feminine, which is to say, the basis of all life as we know it. More

An Interview With Tamara Jeffries
Omega: What was your entry into yoga and how has it impacted your life? Tamara: I remember being little and watching Lilias Folan on television. She was my first intro to yoga and I was fascinated by her long braid of hair, but of course I wasn’t practicing back then. In the 1980s, I was exploring off and on, practicing at home. I bought a few books and that eventually led to me to sign up for a teacher training. More

Is paying attention becoming a thing of the past? We relinquish it at our own peril. Think about it. Kitchen sensors can notify us when the milk in our refrigerator has reached its sell-by date and needs replacing. But is it worth sacrificing our sensory awareness? If we no longer read the expiration date, sniff or taste the product, or shake it to hear or feel lumps that may have formed, our powers of observation are diminished. More

How to Generate the Ultimate Renewable Resource: Love
The explosion of technology has really made time speed up. Everybody is practicing multitasking and trying to keep a number of balls in the air. This has taken a real toll on the intimacy of couples, and so couples have to consciously learn and practice how to stop, slow down, and give each other undivided attention. When you are generating love, love becomes the ultimate renewable resource. —Richard Borofsky and Antra Kalnins Borofsky More
Here's the month-by-month breakdown with Eric Francis. Aries (March 20-April 19) More
Aries, where the Sun is now, is about initiation; that is, beginnings. It's the ignition of the zodiac, the start of the astrological year, and the Sun in this sign arrives with the surge of energy that pushes life up out of the ground during the Northern Hemisphere spring. Now this is being fully activated by the Aries New Moon. The world around us is restless, and you may be feeling that within yourself. This is well-described by the Uranus-Eris conjunction, the beginning of a new 90-year cycle that's just begun. More
