what is the spiritual solution to the violence in the world?

what is the spiritual solution to the violence in the world?

by Gisele Theriault March 17, 2019

It’s been an wonderful month so far in Rishikesh. My aspiration here was to do as little as possible. As an over doer this is a great task and not at all easy. Beyond attending satsangs (teachings) and meditation intensives, just being present with the vastness and colours of humanity in the mountains and on the Ganges is enough to change your life.

During a satsang with ShantiMayi someone asked the question for a magazine article she was writing on how spirituality can help the violence in the world.  ShantiMayi started with clarifying that in sanskrit, one of the oldest languages of scriptures there was no word for spiritual. Spiritual is life...

Auspicious times, exactly where we are

Auspicious times, exactly where we are

by Gisele Theriault March 03, 2019

At any age there is not one of us that can assume that we will awaken the next day or what’s before us. But in this very moment we can all be still with our breath.  As It synchronizes with the pulse of nature we can remind ourselves that we are beyond enough to co-create with unfolding miracles. How auspicious is that?

mosquitos, elephants and a February SALE

When we set our intentions and goals it’s also important to let go of how we think it will come in order for true receptivity to happen. I was so sure that when we got sick we lost our opportunity to see the elephants, period! Whatever we think we know is only a fraction of the possibilities. Yet we hang on to controls like we are captain of the ship. Being human is a lot a things, including funny.

the most powerful B list | Sale of heart

by Gisele Theriault February 03, 2019

Here in India, the panchakarma is going well, although during the detox process of this lots of things arise on an emotional and mental level... Last night in my sleeplessness I exercised creating a BE list... Create it before the to DO list and feel what unfolds. When you create your lists or make notes, allow the vow of the BE list to be the overtone. I'd love to know if you feel a shift of energy like I am.

INDIA

Winter is a fantastic time to withdraw from the busyness of life and enjoy internal reflections in any way and anywhere we can. It’s an instinctive time to change the lens to a wide angle to broaden our vision.

2019 Update ..and I just like you

by Gisele Theriault January 13, 2019

This fall I pushed my limits to the doors of being overwhelmed and anxious. The harder I worked, the more critical I'd find myself. This is not unique to me, so many of us do too much.  When we take on too much we lose the ability to be present to a whole existence outside of where our attention is going. Being overwhelmed or anxious can take on many guises.
