Sweet Potato and Brown Rice Patties - Art of Living Retreat Center

Grounding Nourishment: Sweet Potato & Brown Rice Patties

  This is the time of year where we dig our heels in and stay grounded, or allow the winter winds and cold air to pull us up, up, and away!   If you are ready to dig your heels in, then this is the recipe for you. The warm, moist, heavier qualities of sweet […]

Bhakti - Art of Living Retreat Center

Cookies, Tea, and the Nature of Bhakti

Bhakti Yoga brings us into the world of mystery, a realm where the dissecting, discerning qualities of the intellect are powerless next to the vast ocean of feelings. For most practitioners, the goal of Yoga is union, oneness with the Supreme. But in Bhakti Yoga we don’t think about the goal, we only weep, laugh, […]

Spiritual Purpose of Pets - The Art of Living Retreat Center

The Deeper Spiritual Purpose of Pets

Remembering your true nature The process of placing our energy within a body, and in so doing forgetting that we are vast, majestic, Divine Beings made literally from the energy of Unconditional Love, is akin to being struck on the head by a heavy tree branch and rendered unconscious, only to awaken with no memory […]

Fear - the Art of Living Retreat Center

What if I Am Safe, Loved, Seen, Powerful, Loving, and Heard?

  Turning Fear into Faith has become a steady practice for me since I became pregnant with my son last January. I don’t mean a religious kind of faith, but rather a faith in myself….and the universe. Fear is a very powerful energy, but like any kind of energy, it can be harnessed, manipulated and […]

What is Kirtan? - The Art of Living Retreat Center

What is Kirtan?

Kirtan is the calling, the crying, the reaching across infinite space — digging into the heart’s deepest well to touch and be touched by the Divine Presence.   Kirtan is singing over and over the many names of God and the Goddess, the multi-colored rainbow manifestations of the One. It is said that there is […]

You Matter to the Universe - Art of Living Retreat Center

You Matter to the Universe

Of all our relationships, one stands apart in its ability to inspire and mystify—our relationship to the universe—but most of the time we remain as unaware of the star-speckled space enveloping us as the wallpaper in our living room.   The universe is the pillar that sustains everything in existence, including all our relationships, but […]
