Meditation teacher, Sharon Salzberg, explains how lovingkindness creates happiness and inspires change. "It doesn't have to be a dog-eat-dog world. If we look at a time that we've received someone's kindness, or we were kind in return, that's when we're actually happy," Sharon says. "And that happiness becomes the fuel for effective action in the world." More
Elizabeth Lesser, cofounder of Omega Institute and the Omega Women's Leadership Center, demonstrates a simple but powerful meditation to remind you to do no harm and take nothing from people who are meaning ill to you. "Both can happen at the same time. We can be peaceful warriors," says Elizabeth.  More
American spiritual teacher Adyashanti defines two types of awareness—focused awareness and the field of awareness—and says we all have experienced both.  More

This Grammy Award-winning artist uses music as a way to convey her personal message. Here Ani DiFranco explains why we need to encourage feminism in this generation and how it can save the world. More
The universe is conscious. I first recognized this two decades ago when I began engaging a number of alternative healing techniques to overcome my own childhood trauma—trauma which was complex and deep, far too complex for traditional psychotherapy to conveniently unwind. As I engaged these techniques, which ranged from shamanic healing to rebirthing to energy healing, I noticed quick and radical changes that were very positive begin to happen in my own life. More

I felt a sharp sting as my body smashed into the water and then the muddy bottom three feet below. Struggling and sputtering, I was able to claw my way up onto the bank. In a rush of shock and adrenaline, I threw myself at the cliffside and began to climb, hand over hand, my feet scrambling for toeholds. When I slid down a few feet, it only triggered a more zealous effort, as if some reptilian part of me had taken command. Fingers bleeding, both knees skinned, my jeans and T-shirt torn and splattered with dirt, I reached the top and lay panting. More

Self-hatred is the hidden underbelly of all the violence and nastiness in the world. Self-hatred may seem like too strong a word to some. "I have a little self-doubt," you may say, "but I don't hate myself." Yet if you doubt, judge, or criticize yourself at all, this indicates some dislike or aversion toward yourself as you are. Or if you have a hard time spending time alone, undistracted by work, phone calls, television, computers, or other forms of busyness that pull your attention away from yourself, this suggests that you don't like being with yourself that much.

Man standing at fork in path
You can work on undoing an unhealthy habit by exercising present-moment awareness at three distinct times: before the impulse to engage in the habit arises, during the impulse to engage in the habit, and after the impulse to engage in the habit has subsided (or been indulged). Here’s how it works. Before: Explore what leads you to engage in the habit and make choices that can help prevent you from doing so. More

The pathway was simple. We came here through our parents. As children of our parents, we are connected to something vast that extends backward in time, literally to the beginning of humanity itself. Through our parents, we are plugged into the very current of life, though we are not the source of that current. The spark has merely been forwarded to us—transmitted biologically, along with our family history. It’s also possible to experience how it lives inside us. More
