Imagine going through life with a companion who has nothing but your best interest at heart. Someone who will help you make decisions so you'll be happy, healthy, and safe. Someone who, when things get tough (as they inevitably will), is unfailingly there to console, support, and lift you up. Where is this perfect partner, you might ask? Alas, we're not talking about Mr. or Ms. Right. We're talking about you.  More

Omega: How do you define self-compassion? Michelle: The easiest, most simple definition of self-compassion is treating ourselves with the same kindness as we would treat a dear friend. Omega: What is the relationship between mindfulness and self-compassion? Michelle: There is no self-compassion without mindfulness, and there is no mindfulness without self-compassion (or compassion in general). They need each other for their full expression. More
Leonardo da Vinci, the prototypical Renaissance man, believed that appreciating sensory delights was one of the secrets to inspiring creativity and happiness. He understood that the impressions we experience every day serve as nourishment for the soul, and that without conscious attention, it's all too easy for us to take in the sensory equivalent of junk food. More
Omega: We hear a lot about acceptance as a spiritual practice. How can we accept what is truly horrifying to us, whether it’s a trauma, a tragedy, a person, or even something like the destruction of the planet? Adyashanti: It's challenging for any human being to accept what's horrifying, what's violent, and what's ugly, but it goes back to one of the central tenets of everything I teach, which is to let everything be as it is. More
From the civil rights movement to the Women’s March, many of the most impactful social and political movements emerge from historically oppressed communities organizing themselves to combat systemic injustices. If showing up for a community that is not your own intimidates you, know that you are not alone and that you can make a difference if you know how to engage. If the goal is to commit yourself to justice, open yourself up to learning and don’t be afraid to make mistakes. The result will be uniting with others by being your best self—even if it’s a work in progress. More
“So, are you a foot psychic or something?” This is the question I get asked most frequently, especially because foot reading is less common in the United States than it is overseas. The answer is no, of course. I am a reflexologist, a specialist who presses points on the feet to help the body heal. Reflexology uses a basic map of the feet to show which landmark on the foot mirrors each body part. Foot reading expands on reflexology theory by adding the internal mental/emotional aspects of a person into the mix.  More

Omega: How does self-compassion help us stand up against our inner critic? Steven: Generally if you have a voice telling you you're not good enough, you're not smart enough, or whatever negative message it’s saying, the tendency is to fight back against it. More
