February Fourteenth comes around every year and can be either the most romantic day ever or the source of a great deal of anxiety.

With so many expectations for this  day dedicated to love,  some might prefer to hide away until the clock strikes midnight.

Never fear! An age-old practice from India can help us to discover the secrets of seduction.  Ancient wisdom explains why and modern style, how!

The word “Tantra” means “instrument of the body.”  It may sound exotic, but it is actually very simple.  Tantra teaches us to use all five of our senses consciously, because it is through our senses that we are connected with the physical world. …read more of Try These Ancient Secrets of Seduction This Valentines Day here

It’s a Teen Vogue Moment

Lazing on a cushy sofa in a filled to capacity salon, Sara and Anna are gossiping over steaming hot chocolate while a stylist wraps them like overindulged Christmas presents in silver foil weaving multicolored strands of hear throughout what Anna’s mother calls “mousy brown hair.”

At the same time a manicurist painstakingly applies rhinestone floral creations to perfectly painted crimson talons. Pampered? Spoiled? Not according to these moms, who claim they’re merely “relating” to their daughters. But these girls aren’t teens they are only nine years old. …read more of Designer Daughters, Face To Face With The Ugly Side of Beautiful? here

In a time-obsessed society such as ours, personal freedom is oftentimes sacrificed to a life of too much structure.

Yet, focusing on mundane, seemingly endless tasks can seem overwhelming and result in feelings of anxiety about how to get it all accomplished.

Energy arises from the wellspring of inspiration. Exhaustion stifles that source.

It would be unrealistic, not to mention uninspiring, to live without having thoughts or hopes about the future.

You just feel like you need to . . . what?

Well, that depends. It depends on knowing something very important about yourself. If you don’t have this insight, you are in for some confusing, overwhelming and possibly alienating or expensive moments with others that you simply cannot enjoy.

Just as we have relationships with other people, we also have a relationship with our environment. We are all connected to each other and to the universe, as well.

Our environment is an extension of ourselves. We feel better and function more efficiently when we are in harmony with our environment.

The spiritual journey is really an exploration of both the inner and the outer. When your house is in order, the “outer” part of yourself,  you can focus your attention on your inner world.
