There are so many ways in which our world is off its center. The greed and lack of compassion of our government; increased nuclear risk; story after story in which people show no regard for others or for our environment…

And yet,  all the beauty and justice and love that we can imagine can only take place in this world.

The question for me is always how do we stay aligned in our complex world? And the answer, again and again, is by coming back to the center.

This is something I’ve needed to practice A LOT because when I was younger, I found the world so de-stabilizing.

Coming to my yoga mat and into meditation wasn’t a luxury; it was a necessity as I recovered from panic.

And finding my voice also was not, as Audre Lorde says, a luxury, but a necessity, an assertion of my reality.

In this new video I share with you a simple exercise to come back to your center, come out of your judging mind and reconnect with your core.

I offer a meditation, poem and a writing prompt and also just three minutes of a great core workout. Just three minutes a day can radically change not just your body but your being.

I hope you’ll try it.

​You can watch here or  here:

As we strengthen our core and come into our center, we tap into our voice and our creativity.This makes us more able to write and speak and be as we want to–in our lives and in the larger world.

The poem I read in the video is from Stephen Mitchell’s translation of the Tao Te Ching:

The Tao doesn’t take sides;
it gives birth to both good and evil.
The master doesn’t take sides;
she welcomes both saints and sinners.

The Tao is like a bellows:
it is empty yet infinitely capable.
The more you use it, the more it produces;
the more you talk of it, the less you understand.

Hold on to the center.
