Journey LIVE Teachers Share Their Stories on Fresh Starts

New beginnings can bring up a mix of emotions; scary, exciting, doubtful, hopeful, and more. When a new beginning takes us by surprise, we may feel thrown off and unsure of how everything will work out. Yet, somehow it always does.

We asked our Journey LIVE teachers to share with us stories of new beginnings, both expected and unexpected. Their stories show us that even if we can’t see how our story will end, eventually all the dots connect.

How to Make Your Vacation Last (Well Beyond Your Vacation) 

Summer means vacation time. It’s a season that most people look forward to all year - long sunny days, time spent outdoors and a much-needed break from our busy routines. However, switching from work-mode to vacation-mode can sometimes be a challenge. It can take a few days at the start of a vacation to unwind. Then, just as you begin to sink into a slower, more relaxed mode, you hear that little voice inside your head telling you that vacation is almost over, as your shoulders begin to tense up again.

Be More Loving & Less Wise: How I talk about Meditation

The best guidance I ever received on how to share and talk about meditation came after a week of silent retreat.

I wanted my loved ones to understand.

The Power of the Pause

The Power of the Pause

Take a moment and count to 5. One. Two. Three. Four. Five. Now, think back to the last time you felt overwhelmed, out of control or generally triggered. In that moment did you offer yourself the opportunity to breathe and be still for a few seconds? Or did you dig into the distraction and begin to spiral out? First, let me say there are no wrong answers here. Whether you gave yourself the pause, used every bit of your imagination to spiral into worst-case scenarios or fell somewhere in between; it’s all good. We’re all learning what it takes to show up in our fullness from moment to moment.
