Focus Of The Month – April, 2017 nimittam aprayojakaṁ prakṛtīnāṁ varaṇa-bhedas tu tataḥ kṣetrikavat Causes do not put nature, Prakrti, into motion. They only remove the obstacles and coverings, like a farmer breaking down the barriers to let water flow in the field. The hindrances removed by the causes, Nature impenetrates by herself.

Roots and Shoots: coming together and moving apart

There has never been a time when the earth has been more inhabited. People, plastic bottles, car parts, computers and chemical byproducts clutter the ocean and land alike. Perhaps less thought about is the sound vibration that each and every manifest form carries with it. With all that stuff in the world, the sound vibrations

Shiva’s Drum

Our bodies are an internal wonderland of magic and experience. The watery world of skin, bone, muscle and tissue creates channels and cavities of resonance, and together with the functional systems made of vacuums and pumps, we are a perfect instrument for channeling vibration. It is through these systems, both physical and subtle, that we

Over the past week, Donald Trump's first week as US president, I have been feeling my psoas muscle firing up at the most unusual times. It is as if I'm waiting for the next terrible thing to happen, but in fact, it already has. In the moment it takes to sign pen to paper, Donald

Our body is a landscape of experiences and memories. From our inception until this moment, each one of us is on an evolving journey. The influences from the outside world such as family dynamics, social conditioning and life experiences blend with our genetic makeup and produce our unique character. We, in turn, are resourced with

Landmarks and Pendulums

Tags: , , |

Life provides us with the opportunity to be fluid and mobile, or rigid and fixed. This is as true in the body as it is in our mind. Hips that remain in a fixed seat, a clenched jaw due to stress, or tight shoulders from hunching over a computer can pin us down and prevent
