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.
