3 Things Teaching Yoga Taught Me About Business - Tova Payne (15)
Practicing and teaching yoga taught me a lot about business. The uncanny parallels and lessons between the two is what I'm sharing today. Here are some potent lessons for your business that I first discovered via practicing and then teaching Yoga for almost a decade.1. When you first start teaching you teach based on what you were taught. You don't fully understand what it means to teach "your" version of yoga. Many newbie teachers or teachers who haven't yet made the teachings their own will rattle off the same phrases and instruction that their teacher taught them or that they read in their yoga training course. The reason for this is they haven't yet...
Response to Graham shows area's compassion (15)
Of course residents would feel deeply, from compassion to fear for their own safety. Of course the story has gained unusually strong international coverage, intensifying the drama.

Previous studies had defined meditation as a relaxation response and had attempted to categorize meditation as either involving focused or distributed attentional systems. Neither of these hypotheses received strong empirical support, and most of the studies focused on Theravada meditative practices.

The Happiest Place on Earth Depresses This Mom - Stephanie D. Lewis (13)
Intelligent children (who are well-organized and can understand calendars and priorities) are a dangerous thing. Yes, I was coerced by little people who cannot vote, serve in the armed forces, drink, drive, gamble or plan a well-balanced meal (but who know our yearly passes expire soon) to go to Disneyland.It was Wednesday and not a holiday, so I anticipated the excursion would be rather harmless. But that was before I realized there is a huge "Haunted Mansion" cult out there who thinks observing this ride decorated with pumpkins for Halloween is worth missing both school and work.In other words, Walt would have a panic attack if he could see that "it's a (very crowded) Small W...
The Lost Art of Reading (12)
This blindness has consequences. In Philosophy Between the Lines, Arthur M.

The reader views any problems or inconsistences in the work not as errors but as riddles put forth by the author to be unraveled.
