A small dose on how ideas of light and dark or masculine and feminine do harm. Let’s have healthier polarities to support a healthier society.Read More

The real conspiracy surrounding the Moon Landings. The real-est. Ever.
When I went into my yoga class tonight, I steered past my typical section of the room because it smelled bad. I’m not sure what the source was, and I practiced “letting go” by finding a new spot in the studio. We settled into our various spots and worked through several postures holding our knees,…Read More
Einstein, Bad Quotes, and You
I’m convinced most people don’t know what Albert Einstein’s Theory of Relativity really means or anything about what he did beyond that. We take for granted that he was really smart and then quote him as a philosophical piece of evidence for our own agendas. I have heard lots of people reference him to justify…Read More
4 Minutes, 9 Seconds of Joy
It’s been a heavy week on a lot of layers. No need to go into the deets – we’ve all been watching the news and also have our personal lives. I find it pretty easy to slip into a cloud of heaviness and gloom, and the Studio Rio version of “Sexual Healing” has been like…Read More
Jupiter protects us. The giant, red, gaseous planet’s gravitational pull distracts asteroids swirling around the median of our solar system, looking for a place to land. It calls to them with its massive force “Come to me”. One of those rocks could destroy us. Maybe not all of us, but enough to take down our…Read More

Each generation has its own way of distracting from the truth that life is hard. I’m guilty of this distraction. There are “small” things like finding…Read More
Rockstar Status: Upgrading from Novice to Vegan Yogi
No, I’m not going vegan. I ate fried chicken last night! I also went to a bar on a weeknight for the first time since August 2015. The adventure felt like stepping into a familiar pair of sneakers – perfectly contoured to my footprint, while recognizing they went out of style 5 years ago. My rockstar status…Read More
What to do with an abundance of information?
“In an information-rich world, the wealth of information means a dearth of something else: a scarcity of whatever it is that information consumes. What information consumes is rather obvious: it consumes the attention of its recipients. Hence a wealth of information creates a poverty of attention and a need to allocate that attention efficiently among…Read More
History Repeats Itself
Let’s start with a vague statement: At one point in time, someone said it and I believed it: History repeats itself. We study it, so we avoid letting it do so. If all plots can only boil down to 7 different struggles, I’m assuming history will repeat itself regardless of what we study or choose…Read More
