This morning, in the first moment of awareness of being conscious, the first thought or emotion that enters my head is a crushing weight of depression.  This is the first act of awareness as soon as I wake, after I leave the blissful state of sleep where we are innocen...

I just used some tuna belly (toro) sashimi left over from lunch at a restaurant and laid it over a bed of lettuce, with cucumber, tomato, fresh avocado, slivered onion,

One of the things I love about being a teacher of yoga is that it regularly forces me to examine my own life and how I am living it.

There are a lot of distractions. 

Smart phones.  Social media.  Making a living.  Paying the bills.  Friends.  Family.  Social obligations.  Recreational activities.  Trips.  Some of these things we love, some of them not so much.  But are we here to just entertain ours...

It's so interesting.  As I focus my mind on my breath, and I ask it to stay there, over and over, it wanders off, I bring it back, it wanders, I bring it back.  We do this dozens of times every "sit".   Then suddenly, my mind wanders to what is bothering me, it wanders...
