The Choice of Living a Life

I was born and raised in an island.  A tiny island in the Caribbean, filled with songs, heat, and humor.  The breeze carries a salty flavor that sticks to your skin on humid days.  A flavor that lingers on your tongue after swiftly brushing your lips in particularly humid days.  The breeze, a soft and […]

Resilience

INGRID SILVA // ACTIVIA from Ben Briand on Vimeo. There is this quality of persistence that accompanies every great endeavor.  Nothing worth pursuing comes easy.  Only those who stick to it, have the better chance to succeed.

I Yoga : a Kundalini experience

There is a fire burning from within. I learned this yesterday at my first Kundalini Yoga experience. Kundalini relates to a form of primal energy that resides in all of us.  In Hindu tradition, it is also known as Shakti, which, citing directly from Wikipedia, means “power” or “empowerment”, and is the primordial cosmic energy.  It […]

How to get your groove back (or, how to come back to you when you don’t feel like yourself anymore)

The Power of a United Majority

“It’s historic!”, they say. “The biggest protest in the US history.” The times we’re living are times to be LIVED.  To open our eyes and listen carefully.  To understand what is being said and question everything. These are times where progress is at stake.  Times where the players in the political game are clueless.  Because […]

I Yoga : Flowing with it

Moving into January has been a little bit tricky on my end. How about you? Hello dear friend, The year has started with mixed energies, and it’s been a little bit hard to find my grip.  Mind you, we are just coming out from Mercury Retrograde (for those of us who believe in planetary interventions, […]

Change through Action

I think we are all in agreement to say that the year 2016 has been pretty tough on everybody.  Not that the previous years have been easier either, but for some reason, the collective is more aware than ever of the transformational energy that is all around us. This change, however, must start here, with […]

End of a Year

Hello Seekers, How do you approach the end of a year?  Do you have any ritual or custom that you do during the final days of a cycle? For me, it is always about moving forward. I usually get very quiet. I bring the net results of my efforts up for review, and re consider my […]

Falling into Autumn

  Autumn is here. My favortie season of the year. A time where the sun shies away from the intensity of Summer, and nature wraps everything in gorgeous amber tones.   Some of my most important memories are stored in this autumnal light: my anniversary, New York City, my birthday, and my father’s death.  So, it is […]
