Guided Breathing Session for Increased Energy and Mind-Body Coherence

While often overlooked due its simplicity, the breath is one of the most important components to human health. The breath is referred to as “prana” in many yogic teachings meaning “life force energy.” Indeed, it is just that.

As a fundamental pillar to human health, the cycle of the breath connects us to our environment and is the primary mode in which we draw in energy from the universe to sustain life force within the body. Breathing tends to occur largely as a subconscious activity. Thus, the breath is a gateway to the subconscious mind. Breath is the keystone to changing our state of being, and its influence is immediate and direct. The average person takes roughly 26,000 breaths per day. The quality of our breath has direct influences on all aspects of our health including our consciousness, nervous system, circulation, energy, immune system, cellular respiration, genetic expression and so much more.

How we breathe is how we feel.

Gut Health and Glyphosate

A critical foundation for human health lies in the gut microbiome. This complex and amazing web of life in our gut is a reflection of the soil that our food grows in!⁣

•⁣ 100 years ago, all food was organic. It grew in clean, mineral-rich soil and pure water – no chemicals, herbicides or pesticides. Today, real food has been replaced by corporate-produced, fast, cheap, addictive and processed food-like substances. ⁣

•⁣ Worse yet, the World Health Organization and National Academy of Sciences have identified glyphosate residue as a “probable carcinogen.” On July 7, 2017, the State of California went one step further and declared that Glyphosate “causes cancer and birth defects,” adding it to the Proposition 65 list.⁣

•⁣ It is essential that we prioritize the health of our microbiome and of our bodies as a whole. In many ancient cultures, the gut is referred to as “the second brain” – and rightfully so because like the brain in our heads, it has neurons and produces many neurotransmitters. In other words if our gut is not happy, we are not healthy. ⁣

•⁣ 🔥Cleanse🔥⁣ •⁣ I have teamed up with a group of people who share my vision to provide healing in the world. We believe it starts with cleaning up our food system. I am supporting an “Ultimate Lifestyle Transformation” where we work on reducing body inflammation, detoxification, weight loss (or gain if that’s what you want) better sleep, balanced hormones and more.

•⁣ 🔥Vulnerability🔥⁣ •⁣ In light of being honest and authentic, I want to share how challenging making these videos can be for me. I’ve never been one to project my voice, but given how important I feel it is to share what’s on my heart, I am feeling called to face my fears and step up to speak. It’s not easy for me but I plan to continue to empower my voice and show up while leaning into uncomfortable territory with authenticity and honesty. ⁣

Exploring Red Moon Gardens in MOAB – A WWOOF Experience

Zendo Meditation Experience

One sunny Sunday morning, in the quaint town of Surry, Maine, I had stumbled upon an opportunity to experience the art of Zen. On this fine morning, I was to follow a kind yet modest lady named Nancy on a gentle walk through the old growth forest to find the location in which we would practice a quiet meditation. The morning sun felt as warm as her heart, and after a brief introduction, I knew that we shared the common goal of finding an ever-deeper connection with ourselves, and with the universe.

Through the dense tree cover, the meandering trail eventually guided us to a carefully crafted building made with the very timber that surrounded us. While birds sang, frogs peeped, and leaves rustled in the wind, we entered the meditation room with a bow and proceeded to take our seats. By way of experience, today was about discovering what it means to “be Zen.”

Inside we sat, along with several others to participate in one hour of silent meditation. It was during this time where our spiritual connections expanded in depth, and intuitive insights became illuminated.

Perhaps the most profound insight to come to me was a deepened understanding of the nature of time itself. As an object of the mind, its essence is relative.  It became clear to me that the “time” we abide by with the passing of each day is merely a mental construct that we project onto our reality. By shifting awareness to my heart center, linear time as it is commonly known and experienced began to dissolve and I found myself immersed in what felt like “the eternal now.” In this space, there was no thinking, no rationalizations, no concepts. Simply a being-ness, in which to rest. With no effort, my breath flowed in its natural rhythm, and an easy feeling of contentment was abundant.

As a seeker of spiritual connection, I’ve explored countless disciplines that aim to balance the mind, body, and spirit. Whether it be yoga, Tai Chi, sensory deprivation tanks, or binaural beat meditations, every modality certainly contains its own elements that are valuable. One fundamental goal of Zen is to embody that which is discovered in the journey of meditation. From rigorous self control, practice of meditation, and personal exploration the embodyment of Buddha teachings results in an expansion of the compassionate nature of the self, for the benefit of others. Zen is one path of many that lead to the same ultimate destination, and it is here, now, in this moment. To me, the experience of Zen on this day showed itself to be a valuable tool in the toolbox used to build the metaphorical house of enlightenment.
