Embracing Autumn Without Taking A Fall
September 16, 2015
SEPTEMBER 15, 2015 BY ALLISON KAPLAN 1 COMMENT Good morning on this beautiful day everyone. Happy autumn and apple picking. Not feeling so cheerful and bright lately? You are not alone. Autumn doesn't always bring about joyful optimism and light-heartedness for my friends and family members who are suffering from seasonal shift anxiety and nervousness. My girlfriend tells me that while she loves the cooler nights, crisp mornings and looks forward to cool boots and cozy sweaters her excitement is often overshadowed by anxiety, nervousness, even the blues come and go. Autumn anxiety is real...
Walking The Path Back Into September and Beyo
August 28, 2015
The full moon is approaching, the glow of it streaming into my evening bedroom. There's a magical haze around it's orb calling ME even more into the mystical side of life. September is calling it's STUDENTS to get ready to go back to school. Rooms are being cleaned, college boxes getting filled and lots of excitement is bubbling out of my Sophomore as he gets ready to step back into his journey. The fall always brings back a comfort for me. I love routine. It always feels good to get back into the groove of a more predictable flow. I really miss my "Karma family" as we all spread...

My Meditation Experience
June 11, 2015
Every night I tell myself- I will wake up, drink warm lemon water and go try this heart-based meditation technique Katherine Austin taught me. I'm embarrassed to admit she taught a group of us, myself included, a month and a half ago and I still had not tried it for more than a minute or two. I'm so glad this morning was different. This morning I tried it. That's not an accurate statement â€“ this morning I was it. Time stood still as did I. Samadhi. I went to the amazing Jai Uttal concert last night. Immersing myself in the goodness of the local Kirtan community, but staying up almost...

Nia: More Than a Cardio Dance Workout
March 28, 2015
If You Can Walk, You Can Dance Twenty-one years ago I walked into my first Nia class on two stress-fractured legs. The teacher was a tiny woman with smiling eyes, and before the class began, I dutifully reported my injuries. "I was running," I said. "Both my shins are stress fractured. I'm not sure I can do this class." "If you walked in here," she said, "You can do this class." I must have looked incredulous because she smiled again. "If you can walk, you can dance." By the third song, Madonna's Vogueâ€”Come on, let your body move to the musicâ€”I knew I had found a way of moving...

Your Destiny Is Coming No Matter What
February 16, 2015
The night before I left my Dad during my recent visit, he put his hand on my shoulder and said, "I don't know what it is that you do but I want you to know how proud I am of you." I was so moved that he could express that he knew I was living my destiny whether he understood it or not. Yogi Bhajan said something unusual when speaking about goals and the human approach to life. He said that it was very inhuman to seek, to look for something and try to get it. Instead he implored us to recognize and deliver; to be still and let things come to you. He did not mean for us to be passive. He meant...
Preparing For Change
February 9, 2015
It was another cold, dark, early star filled morning when I donned my boots, jeans and light jacket this time not to sadhana but to head for the airport. The snow was crunching and sparkling under my feet as I ran back into the house to leave the garage door opener for my dog sitter. I drove down Telegraph, my early morning mantras streaming through the Bluetooth. I chanted in the car in order to get them in; my "car sadhana." A great way to start off a challenging trip. My 86 year old father, his health seeming to decline, was awaiting my arrival on the other end of the runway in Florida. It's...
