Nature Inspirations: Wild Ginger

My favorite plant in the whole world is Wild Ginger. I first heard of this plant when I was a teen. It was mentioned in passing, and I was briefly curious, but didn’t know enough about it to really follow the curiosity. Next, in a botany class in college, I looked up from my notes to see a brief glimpse of a weird, three-petaled purple-brown flower with leaves that had veins in the shape of a lotus flower. The caption [...]

Nature Inspirations with Manon McPeters

I am enchanted by tactile connection with my environment. Sometimes that looks like petting very soft leaves on a plant. Sometimes that looks like running on trails or lifting heavy things. Sometimes that looks like climbing on things or jumping in water. Sometimes that looks like letting slugs crawl on my face! One of my other favorite things is mentoring kids. On the first day of a year-long program, I met my kids, and immediately sensed a challenge. This gaggle [...]

Alternate Nostril Breathing aka Nadi Shodhana

Nadi Shodhana means “Channel Purification” This wonderful breathing practice has many health benefits and is my go to for anytime I need a reset, to ground or steady my mind.

The Balancing Nature of Practice

I continue to be humbled and amazed after all of these years of practicing Yoga, at how much I have to learn, and at so many times, unlearn. For years and years in my practice I went after the crazy poses, the longest holds, the fiercest teachers, the deepest emotional state I could bring myself to, and considered it to be the marker for if it was a "good or bad" practice. I had been drawn to and sought after [...]

Learning to be. Happy Cancerversary to Me!

Today is my 7 year Cancerversary and I almost forgot! Funny, not funny, that Facebook reminded me! This seems very fitting, as the past few months I have been reminded through deaths of my family and friends, how short and sacred life is, and to keep clearing out the toxic stuff that gets in the way or distracts me from what’s REALLY worth living for! I am amazed at how quickly and easily the “cancers” slide back in and accumulate, [...]

The Gifts of Grief

Two months ago my father in law, ex brother in law, one of my most powerful sister-friend/teachers/mentors died, and last week we lost lost our Grand Pup. What the heck is going on? It feels like a vortex has opened up and are drawing up our beloveds so quickly! Since December I have been wearing grief like it is a coat of many colors, taking it on and off, depending on what the necessities of life are on any given [...]

Serenity, Courage & Wisdom

A personal note from a humbled Yogini. God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference. This prayer has been a beacon of light for me many, many times in my life. Towards the end of last year I would say that it became a daily, personal mantra, and at times felt like I was begging for any or all of these to show [...]
