Polar Bear Family Begins Its Journey!



This is the day.



Icy, windy, freezing – it might not look like spring to a human. But to a polar bear like Aakaga (whose name means "my mother" in Inuit), today, March 31, is the… Continue

Art of Surrender Series - pt. I

I am beginning a series on the Art of Surrender. And I'm so excited!



This practice has become a focus in my warrior training and it is an exciting, sometimes nerve-wracking, always potential-filled roller-coaster experience. And in those moments when "It" happens, ahhh... there are no words to describe it.



Today's article comes from a wonderful writer named Robert Adams.



"The Art of Surrender" according to R.… Continue

Peace Please

I'm seeing too much hatred on the tube, and all because a movement (a law) has begun so that, finally, all people in the US can have access to a doctor. Yes, there are problems with the policy, it is politics. But can't we celebrate the humanity behind the law and work TOGETHER to tweak the final "how it will work best"?

"This lousy world"





Master teacher Pema Chodron speaks on "This Lousy World."



My own "lousy world" attitude sometimes includes "the dumb doctors," "those darn people who polluted our planet," "(and still do and don't care and still don't get it)" and "what is wrong with people?!"



Thank goodness I have good guidance as I too make the shifts.…

Experience the Equinox!

When the sun sets on Saturday, March 20th, a special kind of night will fall across the Earth.

It's an equal night. Or as an astronomer would say, "it's an equinox."



It's the date when the sun crosses the celestial equator heading north.

Spring begins in one hemisphere, autumn in the other. The day and

night are of approximately equal length.



To celebrate the occasion, Nature is providing a sky show.



It… Continue

Freedom Eagle

Hubby & I were at the colorado "beach" yesterday w/our dogs. We were having a pretty awesome discussion about the new cycle coming in 2012 and we saw a bald eagle flying overhead! It was the 1st time I have seen an eagle soaring freely! He had a beautiful stark white head & tail and everything. :) It was amazing. It took both our breaths away.

Working from Center

Working from Center: In the Thick of It

by DailyOm



When we are "in the thick of it," overwhelmed by too many things that need our attention, it’s important to remember that we are never given more than we can handle. When life’s challenges make us question this, our best coping mechanism is to follow the reliable and well-known course to our calm center and anchor ourselves there. It is for these times that we… Continue

My Zen Dog



I was watching my dog Jersey this morning sitting in the back yard watching a squirrel. The squirrel knew he couldn't be reached, and he seemed to torment and tease my Jersey girl in joyful play.



The startling thing was, about an hour and a half later, I looked out the window and Jersey was still sitting there, peacefully, engaged in the moment, just watching and looking around a bit.



What a reflection of inner peace.… Continue

The Spirit of a Place - Visiting Sacred Sites

Teotihuacan, Mexico

Keeping the Faith - Anything Can Be Overcome



Anything Can Be Overcome

Hope in Hardship



There is nothing in our life that cannot be overcome with time, love, friendship and attention to the matter.





The journey that each human being makes through earthly existence can have hardship as often as it is touched by joy. When we encounter adversity, the stress we feel can erode our optimism, eventually convincing us that the… Continue

And the Winner Is... The Cove!



"The Cove" is an incredible documentary film about the inhumane slaughter and sale of wild dolphins in a "secret" (no longer) cove in Japan. And it just won the Academy Award. I am so excited!



The film features dolphin crusader Ric O'Barry whom I met in Key West FL back in '95. Ric was the original trainer of Flipper the TV-show dolphin(s), who's life - and mission - changed when Kathy, (a.k.a. "Flipper") the dolphin, died in his…

A Tribute to Ric O'Barry



Animal activist Richard O'Barry at home in Florida.



Richard (Ric) O'Barry was first recognized in the 1960s for capturing and training the five dolphins that were used in the well-known TV series Flipper.



Soon, after one of the Flipper dolphins, Cathy, died in O'Barry’s arms he made a radical transition from training dolphins in captivity to assertively combating the captivity industry. O'Barry is currently featured in The Cove,…
