The term grounding means connected to the Earth, and it is one that spans numerous different cultures, traditions, and spiritual practices. While it is associated with feelings of balance, connection, centeredness, sinking, being anchored and in the flow, I would like to explore the greater implications of what is happening every time you go outside and relax into nature.

Derek Rydall: I want to offer a practice that doesn’t require you to join a monastery or sit in lotus for hours.

When one is solely focused on the physical world around them, it becomes easy to be governed by the illusion of duality. The veil of thoughts and the five senses pulls the mind outside of ourselves and we get enamored with the endless opposites all around us; everywhere we look and in everything we know and care about. There’s good/evil, light/dark, and perhaps the hardest to deny are the ones that the laws of physics support moving more into polarity such as up/down, hot/cold, big/small, etc. But if we look closer, they are all relative and mere measurements of the same whole, just on opposing scales.
knowing that meditation is good for you is one thing—sitting down every day to do it is another. And consistency is the key to realizing the practice’s many benefits, says Sally Kempton, acclaimed meditation teacher and the author of Meditation for the Love of It.
Every single day the pain was getting worse, thinking it was ‘just a toothache’, I put it off until a more convenient time for me to deal with it. One day with the pain no longer bearable I went to have it looked at to find out that it was not a root canal as I had thought, it was a neurological condition called Trigeminal Neuralgia. Google informed me that this was considered “one of the worst pains known to humankind” and has also been called “the suicide disease” for its progressive extreme pain and chronic features. Yay me.
System Reboot I don’t know about you, but I’ve kind of slipped off the bandwagon lately with regards to ‘me’ time. I don’t know if its got to do with moving house and having an endless list of things to do or being in the midst of the silly season but quiet, reflective time is […]
I’m Easy. Well, not THAT kind of easy … although, in my 20’s… For a long time now I have been noticing that we reward ‘all that is difficult’. Like, “I studied hard for that exam” and, “It was a rough week” and, “I pulled an all nighter to get this project together for my […]

I Am Enough. A couple of years ago I logged into my infrequently used Twitter account one day and found a flurry of messages congratulating me on my nomination. Nomination for what???
