We’re in the ‘experience’ business – you can’t get a spa service online, and there’s no app for that. This piece confirms that the most lasting effect of a purchase comes from those things that take us somewhere new, somewhere that our senses can fully engage, and our imagination has a chance to test itself. The bonus – we’re bound to meet people who want to share the experience! Love it!
“We humans spend a lot of time waiting in lines: People queue up for days in order to get their hands on the latest iPhone, or what feels like eons for a table at that hip new brunch place.
You may be better off spending time and money on the latter. A growing body of research¬†has shown¬†that experiences tend to
This piece makes the point that feeling all your feelings is important in the process of emotional growth – putting our inner strength to the test helps us develop the capacity to fully experience all the parts of our lives, the happiness, the calm, the little as well as the big moments, and, yes, even the heartbreaking parts.
‘You cannot skip over the pain. If your spiritual practice only serves you when things are going well, I don’t see what good it will do you over the course of your lifetime. Because it isn’t “all good”, and it isn’t all positive. Some things will never go in the category of, “thank you for this experience”. Some things are so brutally heartbreaking you have to hope a person will be able to go on. To experience joy again, to open to love.
I’d say the best spiritual practice is the ability to face reality as it is. To open to the present moment, even when it breaks your heart, and probably especially then. If you can hold the pain, you’ll also be able to hold the joy. If you can lean into the feelings you have around being betrayed, you create a pathway to eventual healing and forgiveness, if that feels right for you. In order to release the heat of feelings like rage, despair, and grief, you have to be able to sit with them. To acknowledge, “I’m hurt. That’s how it is right now. It’s not how it will always be, and it won’t kill me.” And then to breathe, and to allow the tears, or go hit a punching bag, or talk to a friend you trust, or go hiking, or get on your yoga mat.’

Many of us are beginning the transition – for ourselves, as well as our kids – back to school. Here’s a handy overview from our friend Dr. Taz Bhatia.
“Its that time again — the yearly ritual of prepping our kids to go back to school. The lazy days of summer are giving way to bustling mornings, panicked breakfasts and the tracking of lost homework, uniforms, balls and more.
Every August, I try to mentally prepare myself for my children’s return to school and every year, parents ask me for help with prepping their children. We all get lots of back to school information — reading lists, supply lists and names of new classmates — but I realized that most parents don’t get a guide to help them prep for the weeks leading into school. Here are my top back to school tips this year.
