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: Prayers are Always Answered, by Parvati Devi

      Three years ago around this time, a year before I produced my “YIN: Yoga in the Nightclub” album, I was flat on my back in bed, in agony, with a severe spinal injury. I was undergoing a deep spiritual transformation, one that required profound surrender and trust like I had never had before. From that injury, my whole world changed.

      Yoga: Delight on the Mat, by Jodi Fischtein

      What brings us to our yoga mat each day? As practitioners we cultivate agility, fluidity and acceptance. These are just a few descriptives. I was asked to explain the concept of delight and how it weaves into our yoga practice. Delight is the sensory experience that all sentient beings seek. Initially I sensed delight as a colour. I see tangible

      Relapse, or the fear of relapse, is one of the most challenging aspects addicts face in maintaining recovery. Whether the individual has stopped drug or alcohol abuse, smoking, disordered eating or any number of harmful behaviours, the anxiety around starting up again is daunting. Following any type of recovery treatment or after one or more periods of abstinence, the stress

    • Wellness: Using Art Journalling to Find Gratitude, by Debbie Anderson

      It is a fairly new practice for me to feel gratitude not just daily, but on a moment-to-moment basis. Six years ago I didn’t really see how one could be grateful for all aspects of life. I waited for the “good” stuff to feel grateful for: a child’s accomplishment, losing ten pounds, a work bonus, a beautiful new plant for
