When we meditate we bring our awareness to one point. In seated meditation that one point can be an image, a sound or a sensation. In daily life that one point can be whatever we are experiencing right now. Simply stated meditation is being in the present moment. How often do we miss today because we are caught in the past or worrying about the future? Meditation helps us to let go of our worries and concerns and live in the only place we truly have an impact - wherever and with whomever we are with right now.
Please look around our site. We enjoy sharing our insights and experiences with meditation, yoga and martial arts because they have so deeply impacted our lives. In addition Kristin enjoys sharing poetry, an expression of her heart and desire to help others overcome suffering and live happy lives.
In fact, Kristin has put together two books of healing poetry. You can download them at no charge by using these links: Wisdom of my Soul includes pictures with poetry and Dancing with the Divine is another collection of healing poetry. Paper copies of either book are also available. Kristin says, "Sharing poetry is a small way of giving back. Sometimes if I am feeling unsettled I will read one of the poems and feel centered again. That is how I know that I didn't really write them. (ha ha!) We all move in and out of awareness - and if any of the poems help to give someone hope or happiness in a moment of trouble or doubt - that brings me happiness too."
