Post image for Book Club Meeting: The Power Of Now

Chapter two of The Power Of Now by Eckhart Tolle discusses consciousness and how to use it to eliminate pain in the present.  He begins by explaining that the mind is threatened by the present.  This is because the mind needs the reference of time in order to function and be in control – it thinks of things in terms of the past and future.

I just finished reading "A New Earth"...amazing author!
Amber -Jan 27, 2013, 2:16AM
This book is awesome so far, but as others have mentioned - kind of a slow read. I was particularly struck by the author's ability to describe the ego. He brought it to life in such a way that i visualize it to be a different entity entirely, which makes it easier to single out when trying to take a step out of my head and into the now

Post image for My Bikram Journal Day 4

I woke this morning feeling emotional, I wasn’t sad or upset, I just felt like I was in a quite calm place and it was making me feel odd having suffered for many years with a racing mind.  This feeling felt quite strange to me. During my work day I felt my eyes fill up on more than one occasion for no reason at all. I mentioned my emotion to someone here at our office who practices yoga regularly and she told me if I was doing a lot of back bending and poses using my hips it would bring out a lot of emotion and then it all made sense.

Post image for Poll: Into The Great Wide Open

Our Into The Great Wide Open look book reminds us of a western cool vibe. We’ve added touches of bohemia and lace to create looks that are modern, fresh, and have that prairie dreamy vibe. These are perfect transitional looks that we feel would look quite comfortable at music festivals starting this spring.

Post image for DIY: A Sweet Origami Heart

Valentine’s Day is approaching, and with that in mind hearts are on the forefront. I love origami “paper folding” and have always been fascinated with the Japanese art.  There’s something about seeing a flat piece of paper come to life into a 3-D art form that I find so beautiful, and this is merely done by paper folding!

Post image for My Bikram Journal, Day Three

I had the most peaceful sleep last night. I felt rested and relaxed and woke well before my alarm clock. My body was aching in places I never knew could ache and I did not wake with a headache this time. I was however feeling a little groggy from lack of caffeine, it’s the 3rd day with no coffee and I’m starting to crave it. I walked past the coffee shop on my way to work and the smell almost enticed me in… but then I remembered “The Driver and The Chariot” I didn’t give in. Read more »

Hello! First off I must say, "I'm so proud of you!" This year I have 12 different resolutions for each month and my January goal was to do yoga everyday. So far so good! I've taken some "rest" days where I just do a few sun salutations and I feel really great. My body, my mind, my soul, my energy. Everything really flows together, and I never realized that until I started to practice yoga! On January 31st, to celebrate my month long resolution with yoga, I'm going to take a Bikram class for the first time. I've really enjoyed reading your Bikram journal so far, and it's given me new motivation to finish up the month strong. Thank you! xoxo

ahh good luck on day 4! Can't wait to hear about it.
