How to keep calm with all the sh*& going on today.

Jan 21, 2021

Q: How do you keep calm with all the sh*# going on today? Racism, sexism, poverty, murder, abuse. The way people treat each other, the plants, and its creatures is disgusting. I find myself getting so angry. How do you find peace?

Dec 24, 2020

I was asked for some guidelines on spiritual parenting.  


Me and my kids, 2010.  

Here's what I picked up over the last 22 years (I just empty nested this year!).     

  1. Children grow up treating themselves - not the way you treat them - but by the way you treat yourself. So exercise good self care and boundaries, and this includes with your child!
  2. Tantrums are children's way of saying they aren't feeling seen or heard. Distractions...

Comment below and ask away! 

Here's the "first" of the burning questions, which was posed to Savitree about a signature practice in the kundalini yoga tradition called the Sat Kriya:

Thanks so much for your article on Sat Kriya, and for including both options of resting afterwards: taking savasana for twice longer than the amount of time you do the Sat Kriya versus doing it for...
