I hope it's good winter weather in your neck of the wood. Please know that it's not too late to get in another meditation program at Kripalu before the year ends. I'd love to see you at my Soothing Midwinter Meditation Retreat over the Christmas holiday from Dec 23rd -- Dec 26th, 2018.

The program is a day longer than my Introduction to Meditation, which allow you to sink into the space of meditation more deeply. I also include a practice I find very helpful in my life: meditative journaling. Click on Upcoming Program Alert to the right for more information, and register here.

In the meantime, here are links to a couple of articles I found interesting recently:

By Michaela Pascoe from The Conversation
People often turn to yoga or meditation to take time out and manage the stress of their day-to-day lives. Both have been shown to reduce people’s self-reported levels of stress, likely due to the effects they have on the brain’s stress response system.

Lao Tzu’s Four Rules for Living 
Lao TzuBy Azriel ReShel
Many centuries ago, Lao Tzu, spoke of the four cardinal virtues, teaching that practicing them as a way of life can open you to higher wisdom and greater happiness, as they realign you to the source and enable you to access all the powers that source energy has to offer.

Quote of the Week

The gateway to compassion and lovingkindness is to be able to feel our own pain, and the pain of others. If we are able to open in this way, our hearts can melt, and the healing salve of compassion can anoint all our wounds.

 

—Lama Palden, “The Gateway to Compassion
