The Practice of Being True To Yourself

All you need is already within you, only you must approach yourself with reverence and love. Self-condemnation and self-distrust are grievous errors. All I plead with you is this–make love of yourself perfect.

- Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Trees need sun, air, water, and soil. They do not try to rise above their needs. When they work to meet these needs, they thrive; otherwise, they become vulnerable to disease. Learning to meet our own needs is holy work. Self-love is not a woo-woo concept or a self-absorbed indulgence. Self-love is a discipline and a practice that is the bedrock of psychological health and personal sustainability. Self-love is a spiritual duty, a social responsibility, and a critical step in human development. How can we touch the suffering in this world with compassion if we cannot touch our own suffering with compassion?

When we harshly judge ourselves, we become a threat to our own health. Negative self-talk, self-shaming, and self-loathing significantly increase the likelihood that we will engage in behaviors that adversely affect our health and the likelihood of disease and premature death from all causes increases by 200 percent. Modern neuroscience teaches us that it is only human to dwell on the shortcomings in ourselves and in our lives. Our brains are wired to be like Velcro for negative experiences and Teflon for positive experiences. It’s part of how we learn, but when these patterns are reinforced, it becomes our primary source of suffering.  Continue reading

Yoga and Your Health: What’s Self-Love Got to Do With it?

loveyou

The first time I attended a yoga class, something big clicked. It was the most intimate nature hike I had ever taken, except that the terrain was my own body, heart and mind (a vast and largely neglected territory guarded with ‘Disaster Zone’ and ‘No Trespassing’ signs). The instructor’s warm encouragement combined with the physical practices set me on a path to reclaiming my body and befriending myself.  Continue reading

Gratitude: Simple Practices for Profound Healing

tumblr_lzxvg7r4JX1rnb3kio1_500

At the end of the day, which do you think about—the ten things that went well or the one thing that went wrong? It’s only human to dwell on the shortcomings in yourself, in others, and in your life. Our brains are wired to be like Velcro for negative experiences and Teflon for positive experiences. It’s part of how we learn, but at a certain point it becomes a major source of suffering.   Continue reading

Chair Yoga: Who It Benefits Most and It’s Practical Wisdom for Everyone

yam-chair-yoga

Chair yoga is often misunderstood to be an age specific practice. The truth is that we would all be better off with a few chair yoga sequences under our belt, especially where back care is concerned. In an age where long hours are spent sitting at a desk, in a meeting, or traveling by car or plane, none of us are exempt from its practical benefits. Chair yoga is a great choice for beginners who are interested in trying yoga for the first time. It is a safe and accessible practice for anyone, of any age, and particularly for those who are living with physical limitations.  Continue reading
