Once you are on the other side, you can create a new chapter and live happily ever after. Promise, I did it and I see proof everyday it is so very possible.
If you haven't already, start today. Don't ask someone else any questions. Just ask yourself, and agree to take on the work required to create your own process for living life with intention.

This is what I started doing after I quit my elaborate mediation practices. I do not recite mantras. I do not attempt to bend my arms and legs into inhumane positions. I do not close my eyes. I do not imagine white light coming into my head or any supernatural body parts growing out.
When we get to weave the energy of our spirit, which is pure love, into the fabric of our society, true freedom becomes more palpable for all.
After that relationship ended, I took some time to really look in the mirror, and really look at myself. While I may have made my body healthy, I destroyed my mind in the process.
I recently released a book, Cooking and Eating Wisdom for Better Health , which awakens people to the ancient Greek wisdoms for cooking and eating for...
Woo-woo or not, compassion is needed today more than ever, and perhaps mindfulness can help bring us there. Through Mumford's book, we can all learn to be Mindful Athletes in our day-to-day lives.
A priest visited the woods with his coffee every morning; like me (and my dog) he was a regular. Sometimes, we exchanged a few words, then continued on, traveling silently to our private respective spots.
Recently, I walked a section of the Camino de Santiago, a pilgrimage that begins in France and ends in Spain. For centuries, thousands of pilgrims of different spiritual traditions, backgrounds, and countries travel to participate in the 800-kilometer trek.
Step into the flow of your energy field and ride it. In those moments it feels as if the perfect thing falls out of nowhere into my lap and I know that I am living the dream.
Mindfulness is a way of being and thinking that grows out of paying attention, on purpose and without judgment, to what is happening in the present moment. When we are mindful, we deliberately slow down to notice what is happening inside us (our thoughts, feelings, and body sensations), and what is happening outside us, in our environment. The intention is to see things as they are, rather than as they used to be or as we wish they could be. The good news is that the development of mindfulness helps us notice our emotions without being triggered by them. It moves us from living on automatic pilot to pausing and paying deliberate attention to what is happening in the now.

Your mind, body, and soul are composed purely of energy. For this reason, what you feel translates into how you feel. And if you often feel sick, depr...
Last month I told friends I was taking a few days off to go on a vision retreat, and I realized people had no clue what I was talking about. "Is that a course you're taking?" someone asked. Good question.
Last week, President Obama addressed an audience of religious leaders, policymakers, researchers and community organizers when he spoke as a panelist at the Catholic-Evangelical Leadership Summit on Overcoming Poverty.
I found that drumming tapped into the beat of my heart; it reminded me of hearing my child's heartbeat while in my womb. The beat of the drum slowly became hypnotic, my body began to move rhythmically along with it, and within moments I was transported to another place in time. It was peaceful, calming.
The past year has stretched me, pulled me, and challenged me more than I ever thought possible, but today I am more grounded, vibrant, connected and authentic than ever before with the unshakeable confidence to match, and I teach my clients to do the same. This is shining from the inside out.
