I'm not sure if "simplicity" is so important to me because I've never really had the ability to buy a lot of stuff, or if it's just the way I'm wired. Either way, it's clear to me that practicing simplicity is another mindful pathway to...

In addition to being fully engaged with the people and activities before us (see previous entry), another indicator of progress in mindful, "Present Living" is noticing and exploring our lingering intentions. We intend something in every moment, whether or not we're cognizant of such interior designs....

The more I study and practice "Visceral Awareness" (see previous entries in this blog series), the more I realize how uninformed I've been about the deepest needs and resilience of the human body. Consistent meditation upon our breathing, intentionally wearing the Buddhist "half smile," and tuning...

Continuing my study of "Visceral Awareness" (see previous entries), I'm learning that I'm all about that chakra. Literally. Something to which I gave scant regard, until I got into my 40s, was how little attention I paid to the physical manifestations of any emotions I was...

I'm on the go across the country quite a bit these days, coinciding with a very intensified effort to eat as healthy as possible. I'm finding that it's impossible to replicate the exact nutritional context you can create at home, but there are options for...

There's that moment when your eyes are metaphorically opened to old realities that are new to you. If we're lucky, it happens in frequent and significant ways. I thought I knew how to eat well. For years I've minimized my intake of fried foods, saturated fats...
