Why I’m A Weekly Vegetarian – a transcript from the Graham Hill TEDtalk We all know the arguments that being vegetarian is better for the environment and for the animals — but in a carnivorous culture, it can be hard to make the change. Graham Hill has a powerful, pragmatic suggestion: Be a weekday veg. About a year ago, I asked myself a question: “Knowing what I know, why am I not a vegetarian?” After all, I’m one of the green guys: I grew up with hippie parents in a log cabin. I started a …

Meditation For Athletes

by in Meditation, Mind.

Meditation For Athletes Do professional athletes meditate?

by in General, Nutrition, Outside, Recipes.

The Gluten Free Craze Michael Pollan thinks there’s more to the gluten-free craze than gluten intolerance alone.

Western universities do not teach methods to enable the developing or the mature mind to become quiet and to focus its considerable powers on a …

Happiness never decreases by being shared.” Buddha Centered in Self, I am happy. We often think that money, possessions, and external conditions bring happiness.

Attuning myself to Spirit, I contemplate the love of God within me, for out of this …
