This post about my evolution to spiritual activism is the third in a three part series. You can read part one here and part two here:

In 1998 I discovered Yoga, Buddhism and Meditation. Over time, they became my self-care and then my spiritual practices.

Buddhism began to transform the way I saw the world, other people and myself. Compassion became a major intention in my life– along with concepts like interconnection and non-attachment. My relationship to activism began to shift.

My desire for change began to come from a place of love and compassion instead of anger and judgement.

I still ache to heal our world.

But I’ve discovered another way to to go about activism, what I call Pro-Activism, commonly called Spiritual Activism or Engaged Buddhism. Read More

Lovingkindness is a heart-centered practice that is originates from the Buddhist tradition. In this practice, the focus is on emotions and the feelings that coincide with them.

 

We imagine different people and wish them well, beginning with ourselves.

 

  • At first the practice might feel contrived, naive, or saccharin-sweet. However, the deeper experience of practice is quite different than the surface and the words we say to ourselves as we practice.
  • You might feel your heart swell with emotion or you may feel nothing at all. Both are normal.

Keep in mind that you aren’t doing anything supernatural and that you’re ultimately not trying to affect others. The only person we can change is ourselves. Therefore, this practice is really about learning more about our deeper feelings, gaining insight into our emotional patterns and self-healing.

Practice Tibetan Yoga Exercise: Mind-Body Reboot, Rose Taylor Goldfield

Shake tension out of your body and refresh your mind with Rose in this Tibetan Yoga Exercise known as the Mind-Body Reboot.

Untitled

This practice is based upon the  form of Tibetan Yoga Exercise known as Lu Jong. In this exercise, we rotate around the 4 energy centers of the body: the origin point (below the navel), the heart, throat and crown centers of the body. By rotating, we loosen physical and emotional energy in the body. Then we shake it out to release excess tension. This allows us to feel more alert but also more relaxed.
