October 2014: Equilibrium



Welcome to the October 2014 edition of Parvati Magazine

As we move beyond the equinox into the fall season when summer seems of the distant past, we may feel overwhelmed by increasing to-do lists and wonder how we keep healthy, happy and whole in meeting the goals we have set for ourselves. When the season turns and we adjust to the cooler temperatures, we are called to find balance in the face of change.

Please enjoy this month’s articles that explore the theme Equilibrium to help you cultivate balance at all levels of your life.

    • Wellness: Finding Your Sense of Fun with Art Therapy, by Debbie Anderson

      No matter why they come to art therapy, many of my clients have little capacity for fun. Most of their energy is focussed on functioning in their world and meeting the expectations of the others in their lives -whether they be family, work, or friends. Their lives have become energetically tight and closed. They are distracted away from joy. Life

    • Fitness: Fear Is An Inhibitor, by Sandra O’Brien

      I literally laughed out loud when I saw the topic for this month’s article. Even the best of us fall off the wagon sometimes, and I have been stuck in many ways the past several weeks. Workouts were sporadic at best. My eating was… well, let’s just say there is plenty of room for improvement, and not mention my affair

    • Meditation: Endings and Beginnings, by Lama Catherine Rathbun (Jetsun Yeshe)

      We are always involved in endings and beginnings. School ends, holidays begin; grade school ends, high school begins; childhood ends, adulthood begins; health ends, illness begins; summer ends, winter begins; day ends, night begins.  Sometimes we welcome the end and the beginning of a cycle with pleasure and eagerness and sometimes we try to prolong and hang on, hoping against

    • Positive Possibilities Living: From Drama to Fierce Discernment, by Parvati Devi

      Having a light-hearted attitude towards ourselves and life in general brings a sweetness and joy to our daily experiences. When we face things we don’t like, we may tend to push rather than ease off the pedal and open to possibility. Keeping it light not only helps us stay buoyant amidst the roller coaster ride of life, but also helps

      Positive Possibilities Living: How Does Change Happen, by Parvati Devi

      How does change happen? We often say we want change, when really we are afraid of change. Holding on for dear life to old patterns in our thoughts, in our cells, in our action, we find ourselves without the results we want and repeatedly back in similar situations. We blame circumstance, others, even God, for the events in our life
