How to Stop Overthinking & Start Listening to Your Body
Indian Springs is a natural hot springs resort in Calistoga, California. It is one of those places people go to unplug, relax, and enjoy the healing mineral waters. I was enjoying a long, hot soak in the outdoor pool when a loud voice rippled through the silence, “Honey, you will love this. It’s just like lemonade.” My body responded with a tug in the back of my throat. I immediately got thirsty and opened my eyes. More

An Interview With don Miguel Ruiz Sr. & don Miguel Ruiz Jr.
Omega: How can the second agreement, “Don’t take anything personally,” be useful for us when it comes to family members and friends? don Miguel Jr.: My father taught me that I’m responsible to the tips of my own fingers; I’m not responsible to anyone else. To take things personally is to assume responsibility for someone else’s will. Here’s a story of how my father taught it to me: More
Pile of tarot cards
Last night I watched the first episode of the new season of the world’s longest-running television drama, Dr. Who. The show is a light-hearted time travel story that, over its 55 years, has become more complex, more mysterious, and more rooted in the wonders of life, death, and identity. Afterward, I thought about the Tarot—what it has meant to me, what it gives us—and it struck me that Dr. Who and his strange time machine, the Tardis, have a lot in common with the Tarot and those of us who read the cards.

A miracle is a shift in thinking, a shift from fear to love. At first glance that sounds a bit ridiculous. How does shifting a thought cause a miraculous change? And yet it does that exactly. For every thought we think creates form on some level. A simple thought—seemingly trivial or even unimportant—carries within it the power to move mountains. And that is the least it can do. There is no worldly power—no money, no technology, no business or government—that can match in power the power we wield by simply using our minds for the purposes of love. More

Hope has a bad name these days among certain teachers. On the one hand, it seems to suggest wishful thinking that distracts us from a sober assessment of reality and fosters unrealistic expectations. As Nietzsche put it, “Hope is the worst of evils, for it prolongs the torments of man.” Meanwhile, in the language of “spirituality,” hope implies a rejection of the present moment, or perhaps a taint of doubt eroding the creative power of one’s intentions. But let us not be so quick to dismiss this primal element of the human psyche. More

According to the Yoga Service Council, yoga service is defined as the intentional sharing of yoga practices that support healing and build resilience for all—regardless of circumstances—and are taught within a context of conscious relationship and rooted in self-reflection and self-inquiry. More
How to Turn Resistance Into Resilience
When we get hooked on the latest video game on our phone, or our favorite flavor of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, we are tapping into one of the most evolutionarily conserved learning processes currently known to science, one shared among countless species and dating back to the most basic nervous systems known to man. This reward-based learning process basically goes like this: We see some food that looks good. Our brain says, Calories, survival! And we eat the food. More
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
