Fear & the Spiritual Practice

Authored By: 
Rachael Patterson

My son is such an inspiration for me.  He is practically fearless.  It doesn't matter how many times he falls, he loves to climb.  He would stand on the back of the couch to look out the window before he could walk.  He climbs chairs, tables, his crib, anything he can hoist himself up on. He grins from ear to ear when he conquers a new piece of furniture.  I watch in wonder as he climbs up, up, up, and it makes me ponder the fear I feel as I watch him.

Diet & Lifestyle to support our Monthly Cycle - Ayurveda for Women

The science of Ayurveda comes from ancient texts of India called The Vedas. Regarded as humanity’s oldest literature, they were written over 5,000 years ago and give insight into the purpose of life, how to be healthy and how to live in harmony in our surroundings. It’s not a religion, but rather the oldest philosophy on how we got here, where we’re going and why.  It provides the ‘Handbook for the Human Condition’ and is the original holistic medicine.

Here are some basics:

Sleep Apnea: Causes & Remedies – an Ayurveda 411

Authored By: 
Kirsten Joy Burch

“Living Yoga” is a state of being calm and staying calm, of being kind and loving. It’s where you finally realize that virtuous intention results in virtuous karma. It’s when you align your thoughts, words and deeds to a higher purpose which allows you to fulfill your heart’s desires, while contributing positively to the universe.  It means aligning yourself with Nature, because when you do, you become more balanced, and have more time for practice and study. As a result of this yogic living, suffering becomes less of an option in your daily life.

The first law of Ayurveda is "like increases like / opposites balance".  With that in mind, let's review what we DO know about air travel:

Your Body Speaks Your Mind

Authored By: 
Kim Salisbury

One of the most amazing books that I was introduced to several years ago during my yoga therapy certification was “You’re Body Speaks Your Mind,” by Deb Shapiro.  Since reading this book the very first time it has remained at my bedside and weekly I go to it for answers and inspiration.  It is filled with stories and recommendations for decoding the emotional, psychological, and spiritual messages that underlie illness.  It presents the idea of how interconnected the mind and body are and the importance of listening to both. 

About the Author: 

Kim is the owner of The Fit Room in Plano, TX and much of her week is spent one on one with people seeking healing and health. Having a passion for all things physical, Kim began her career in personal training, became curious about the mind/body connection opening her world to Pilates and then dealing with injuries herself and those of her clients, dove head first and still hasn't come up for air into the healing world of yoga.  Currently studying to become a health coach, Kim wholeheartedly believes that your health and wellness is not just dependent on being on your mat or showing up at the gym.  Living a healthy life involves meaningful relationships, physical activity, fullfilling employment and a spiritual practice.  It is keeping balance in these 4 areas of life that keeps us well, joyful and passionate.  

When Healthy Eating Becomes an Unhealthy Obsession

Orthorexia Nervosa:
When Health Eating Becomes an Unhealthy Obsession.

The term Orthorexia was coined by Steven Bratman, MD. in 1997. He started using it with patients that were overly obsessed with healthy eating. The word Orthorexia is derived from anorexia and “ortho” meaning straight or right. But unlike anorexia which focuses on restricting food intake in order to become thin, orthorexia restricts foods that are insufficiently clean, healthy or wholesome.
