The Spiritual Roots of Yoga

There are many modalities that we can practice without even knowing the history of why it was developed and practiced in the first place. For me, one of those modalities is Yoga. In “The Spiritual Roots of Yoga,” Ravi Ravindra provides a brief but in-depth narrative of Yoga.  Yoga is the longing for and realizationContinue reading “The Spiritual Roots of Yoga”


A common misconception about meditating is that when we meditate, we set aside a specific time during the day to focus. But as Jinananda describes in “Meditating,” meditation is more a way of going about things rather than the end product of a gratifying experience. Meditation can help us take full ownership of our experienceContinue reading “Meditating”

The Power of Now 

How many of us can say that we have little use for the past and honestly believe it? I think many of us define who we are based on our history, and it creates our identity.

The Wise Heart

If you are looking for a practical guide on Buddhist psychology, Jack Kornfield’s “The Wise Heart” would be a great read for you.  It was once stated that although many people view Buddhism as a religion, the teachings are more of a science of the mind. The Buddha was not a god, he was aContinue reading “The Wise Heart”

The Book

Have you ever wondered who or what we are, beyond an ego in a physical body? How are we connected to everything else? Many people have a sense of separation from the Universe. But this is far from the truth.   “The Book” by Alan Watts explores our place in the universe and whether our existenceContinue reading “The Book”
