A time when I thought I failed in life

  [ failure ] in life. There was a time when I really thought I had failed, it was the only time in my life that I had that feeling of failure and carried it around in my heart for a long, long time. It was not a small failure but something that was the most important thing in my life and I felt I failed to sustain and make it flourish. It took me many years to forgive myself for failing.   I could not forgive myself until I realized there is no such thing as failure. Failure is just a word, but the truth is, everything that happens to us, everything we go through is just what had to happen for everything to fall into place right now:...

A Good Night Sleep

A good night Sleep   A good night's sleep is a healthy day ahead. We underestimate how crucial sleep is for our well-being and balance.

Grounding: get Grounded and down to Earth

When we talk about grounding we are saying that one has their feet on the ground we mean that the person is in touch with reality, aware and in the present moment, with a developed common sense and not lost in space, past regrets or anxiety about the future. Being grounded means to be relaxed, in touch with our truth, inherent wisdom and knowing. Feeling good in your own skin. On the mat grounding implies having a good foundation: having your feet relaxed, your legs strong but not tense, under-standing to rise, letting go tension and being able to integrate strength, steadiness, ease, focus and presence in the practice. A person that can feel his feet on the ground and the contact with the earth can...
