people wearing face mask for protection 3957986 1600x1071

Wearing or not wearing masks may make the difference between life and death from the coronavirus, so it’s essential we keep each other informed with our best research and understanding on how to best cope in these transformational times. I love fresh air, the breeze on my face, the smile on my lips, and working and playing in close connection with friends and beloveds. And I still do that. I dislike masks. I still think

Aloha, Everyone! Are you feeling the afterglow of Summer Solstice, the summit of full summer? The ceremonies in Hawaii at the Peace Gardens fill me with hope in equal balance with hopelessness. At the moment of greatest global darkness, a luminosity arises. The extremes are a good sign that the spiritual revolution is in process.

Aloha, Friends, Yogis, Cultural Creatives, and Neighbors! We are all part of this healing Earth. Isolated health is an illusion.

3/16 Evolution to Pandemic Solutions | Yoga & Climate Change, Part 4

Here We Are   Notes for Living on Planet Earth illus  by Oliver Jeffers

The Big Bang was the moment everything started, when the building blocks of all life burst into action 13.7 billion years ago. Atoms, cells, bacteria, little bugs like viruses and fleas, fish, four-leggeds, two-leggeds and flying things flourished. Now, as our pale blue dot in the ocean of space roasts in a global fever, we face massive threats to our survival and planetary health, but it’s not too late to ask why and how we

Wheel of Healing

This morning, when the sun had not yet risen and showers of first light were spreading wings over the volcanoes, I listened for the sound.

The last time I remembered feeling so awed by the symphony of life was the day I came out of the coma and remembered that

10/31 Halloween & Our Ancestors | Yoga for Happiness

Halloween 2

Halloween may have lost much of its spiritual significance for costumed Trick or Treaters and candy-stuffed nightwalkers, but Celtic and Druidic traditions of the harvest, feasting, and meeting up with the ancestors have survived for a lucky few. In Hawaii, this is the start of Makahiki, a three-month-long celebration when regional clans complete the harvest, put aside status and rivalries, lay down their swords, and feast, make art, serve offerings, play games, and aim communal
