The Union of Love and Peace

I am in a current month long Meditation on Love and Peace. Since the month began, I have been sharing a wisdom a day on Instagram. Since February 2015, I have dedicated the month to writing about Love. I first wrote a series of posts about different types of love, which evolved into a weekly…

Mindful Monday #183 – The Backburner

Wisdom is everywhere. We hear it from our teachers or parents/ guardians when we are young. We gain wisdom with each experience we have from childhood and beyond. We may read wisdom in poems or books or hear it in lectures or conversations. We may even speak our personal wisdom to our friends and colleagues….

Wisdom Wednesday #87 – The Person You Should Really Marry

“I married everyone in sight except the one person I needed to marry to have a great relationship.” – Tracy McMillan It’s Wednesday and Valentine’s and boy do I have a wisdom for you! This is one of the best wisdoms that emerged when I meditated on marriage last year. That meditation brought so much…

Mindful Monday #172 – Your Untapped Strength

Happy Monday! I stepped into my 2nd yoga class of 2018. Class provided space for a humbling and empowering realization that I did not see it coming. During the last few hours, on the last day of my silent meditation, which was the first day of the new year, I hurt my right foot. We required…

Wisdom Wednesday #86 – The Dangers of Closing Your Heart

“You can only accept the love outside of you, at the level you accept it within yourself.” – Kyle Cease In 2016, I was worked on 2nd Unit for the feature film Jason Bourne. During production of that movie, I lived in a casino in Las Vegas for two months. There is nothing glamorous about…

Tune #47 – How Far I’ll Go

Why do we do what we do? This is an age old question that has intrigued social science scholars to continually study our thoughts, habits, human interactions, family dynamics, child development etc. to gain deeper understanding of people. While there is an abundance of scholarly knowledge, what if their is a spiritual component that we can…

Mindful Meditation #163 – Love them Just As They Are

I went to the Museum of Broken Relationships on a whim. The museum as described by the museum itself “is a global crowd-sourced project.” It has permanent museums in Los Angeles and Zagreb, Croatia. This museum has traveling exhibits that have been all over the world. People send in artifacts/ relics from their broken relationship…

Mindful Monday #162 – Strength in Knowledge

Knowledge has made a large presence in my life this year. It was skilled in how it showed up and I almost missed it. This year has been filled with a lot of challenges, unexpected experiences and big spot lights that has been shed in the moment of the women (that is me) that is…

When Did We Grow Numb?

I’ve been carrying sadness in my heart. When I focus on what lead to this sadness I get angry, and by the end of the retelling of the story or when I recall that moment, sadness comes over me again. On Monday, I wrote about frustrations that are calling me to reboot my life to…

Mindful Monday #158 – Ask Questions

People find shelter in my presence. They find comfort in the fact that they feel seen and heard when they spend time with me. “You’re easy to talk to,” both friends and strangers alike have told me. It’s interesting to see people acknowledge, in recent weeks, that they “dump” on me. They dump their secrets, struggles,…

Take a Step Back

Each fall and spring I look forward to working with at-risk teens through an arts non-profit. This program is a highlight of the season. I have been working with the group for three years. This year I decided to step back. This past fall I worked on one of the most demanding, stressful and challenging movies….
