I am at home in myself

I am at home in myself

“I am the sweet smile on your face when you discover home in yourself.
I am the intuitive whisper within you.
I am your truth.”
It’s such a joy to teach the timeless, life-affirming teachings of Tantra with Sanskrit and Yoga scholar Christopher Tompkins, like we did at Om Rising this year.  We have both found teachings and mantras to be a direct means to self-healing and deep transformation, especially “finding home in the self.” In this class, we examined this Shaivist text:

ahaṃ devo na cānyo’smi, brahmaivā’haṃ na śokabhāk | sac-cid-ānanda-rūpo’haṃ, nitya-mukta-svabhāvavān

which translates to:

“I am the divine. I am nothing else. I am not a receptacle for ignorance, for I am the highest alone. I am made of Being-Awareness-Bliss. My truest home is my highest Self, who is forever free.”

Finding home in yourself is an embodied, accessible tool for thriving in the challenges of everyday life, and for knowing, right now, the wonder and power that you are.

Effort, or evanesce?

We can do the same actions with completely different energies: whistle while we wash the car or grit our teeth the whole time. Our no can be soft or rigid- both are “no”, but they leave different imprints inside of us. As we become more aware of the always-present humming center of our being, the indwelling perfection, the big battery of life, pulsing with light….we

Being Naked, At Long Last Free

When I was a little thing my parents would release us naked onto the beach like most European children and we would clamber over rocks and play in the shore waters for hours. There was no self-consciousness about it at all. After being sexualized and shamed about my body in adolescence and adulthood, I stopped being naked in public. It seemed then a no-win situation:
