The Momentum of Our Pathology

I heard a phrase on Dr Phil a few days ago (Yes, watching Dr Phil sometimes is my dirty little secret) that caused me to take note. He used the phase "the momentum of her psychology". While the word 'pathology' might be an intense word to use when reflecting upon your unwanted habits and behaviours, [...]

Do no harm; especially to yourself

One of the tenants of Vedic philosophy upon which yoga is based is Ahimsa - do no harm, non-violence. I am no Vedic philosophy expert but I have been contemplating how the goal of non-violence is expressed in daily living. How do you live in such a way that you do no harm? Most often [...]

So what does mindfulness have to do with weight loss?

The practice of mindfulness has moved from a practice reserved for yogis and people seeking spiritual enlightenment to be part of modern psychology as a tool for addressing all types of problems.

Embracing your wonderful weaknesses

Last week I was encouraging you to look less critically at your body, to stop finding fault with its individual parts and embrace its beauty.

The Key to Persistence

I am a persistent little woodpecker. I have always been persistent and committed to achieving whatever hare-brained idea that I have come up with.
