We can learn so much from plants. 

Growth takes time. It first requires a seed. 

Some plants grow faster than others. Some require more care. Seasons matter, climate matters, the environment matters. And even in the harshest environments plants still grow. 

Human beings are no different. 

Some seasons of life we have more capacity to grow and evolve. Some seasons we need more nourishment.

We are living in a very harsh environment right now. The intensity of this moment is inescapable. Creating a container for seeds of change to grow is mandatory for our survival.

But, survival is the minimum. What we are really seeking is to thrive. To live vibrant, full lives.

It's possible. But we cannot do it without help, without nourishment, without a container that supports our growth. 

The small choices you make today are planting seeds. Your daily rituals and habits are here to create a container that will be better equipped to support your growth. You won't see the growth overnight. The flower doesn't bloom the same day you plant the seed. It takes the right container, fertile soil and consistent nourishment. 

Let go of perfection. 

Let go of the need to get everything right, the first time. 

Let go of instant gratification. 

Simply choose the next right action. Plant the seed. Nourish it every day. 

Start there.

Be patient. 

 

If you are looking for a collective space to plant the right seeds to build your body's capacity to cope with the intensity of this moment we are living through come join us for the Align & Awaken™ Spring Reset. It is an invitation to turn down the noise. To hit the reset button and shed what is keeping you stuck. It's the next right action.

We begin our collective work together on April 21. Join us here

Spring is here


Spring is the ultimate metaphor for resilience. After a particularly long Winter it is time for renewal. As a global community we are slowly emerging from a hibernation. Allow yourself to take it in.

Let Go


Aparigraha invites us to let go of the our attachments to things, to people, to outdated beliefs and old ideas.  It’s helpful to consider our relationships, our job or career, our politics, our identity. Are each of these serving our highest values? If not, what keeps us in a place of grasping?

Finding balance and moderation


When we are practicing Brahmacharya we are less likely to make impulsive decisions. We are less likely to behave in ways that are self-indulgent and more likely to make mindful decisions based on how our behavior impacts not just ourselves, but the collective.
