Meditation: The Pearl in the Oyster by Ed & Deb Shapiro

An oyster may not like that irritating grain of sand in its shell, but it manages to transform it into a precious pearl. 

Stressed During Cancer Treatment? Try Meditating by DON VAUGHAN

You might think that a psychotherapist would be better equipped than the average person to deal with the emotional turmoil brought on by a cancer diagnosis. 


Momentary Mindfulness by Annie McKee

I really loved this post! I do find it a challenge to meditate 2 hrs a day…true! She gives great advice in this post. Enjoy!

For years I believed that the only way I could manage stress and stay spiritually grounded was to run three miles a day and meditate for an hour in the morning and an hour at night. 

So what to do? I’ve found a way that works for me and it’s easy. I call it momentary mindfulness.

Mindful Moments by Suze Hargraves

A lot of people don’t think meditation is for them.


PRICELESS! Mindfulness Meditation with Jon Kabat-Zinn


  • much ado about nothing?
  • more being than doing
  • if you get out of touch with the being who is doing the doing it is tragic
  • we are still saddled with a Stone Age mind! which may impede creativity …
  • we live in a multi-dimensional Universe! if we are not in touch with the multiple dimensions of our own Being we are trying to do things without tuning the  apparatus
  • meditation is like tuning your instrument before taking it out on the road
  • where do you think scientific breakthroughs come from ? beyond thinking – awareness
  • society is suffering from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder: all about doing with no recognition of being
  • non-doing is giving up wanting anything else to happen even in the next moment never mind at the end of the day …
  • meditation is an act of love, an act of sanity … just to stop for a fraction of a sec and drop into BEING
  • meditation: it’s not what you think!
  • there is something about being human that we have been ignoring at our peril, being and doing together
  • we only have moments in which to live, the future is a concept, a useful concept
  • the past is a concept, memories
  • the only time our life is unfolding is in the present moment: NOW
  • if you learn to inhabit the NOW, the Universe becomes your teacher because there is no boundary to awareness
  • tune into NOW just for fun!
  • rest in awareness; there is a rest in wakefulness that you don’t get in sleep!
Love After Love by Derek Walcott
The time will come
when, with elation
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror
and each will smile at the other’s welcome,and say, sit here. Eat.
You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you

all your life, whom you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,

the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.
