Rank #1: 036 - A Blue Moon
Do you have something that you would do only once in a blue moon? This weekend is your time! Saturday May 18 - at 6:11 p.m. Atlantic Standard Time - is a blue moon, the full moon day in the month of May. In honor of the Buddhist festival of Vesak Day, the full moon day in the month of May, today we reflect on karma.
Rank #2: 035 - Dance into May
We have reached Bealtaine or Beltane. It is the halfway point between the spring equinox and the summer solstice, the beginning of summer and a celebration of life. Is there anything that's holding you back or weighing you down? Anything left over from the underground time of the winter? Shake it off. It's time to stoke our inner fires as we dance into May
Rank #3: 032 - Self-Existing Joy
Where do grown-ups come from? Where do the children go? Do we grow old only if we have stopped growing? Today we reflect on self-existing joy.
Rank #4: 027 - Breathe Through Your Heels
“Now, take this huge tree here, son. If someone were to hack it at the bottom, its living sap would flow. Likewise, if someone were to hack it in the middle, its living sap would flow; and if someone were to hack it at the top, its living sap would flow. Pervaded by the living essence…, this tree stands here ceaselessly drinking water and flourishing….that is how you are." Today, we reflect on how to “breathe through the heals”.
Rank #5: 025 - The Space In-Between In Which We All Live
The house is freshly cleaned. The fridge, and closets, and cupboards – all the storage spaces – were sorted. What needs to be let go, re-purposed and released? What has a place in my world? Putting things in place, one after the other: it creates structure. Because of this structure, there is space. Thank you for joining us as we reflect on limits, and limitlessness, and the space in-between in which we all live.
Rank #6: 028 - A Reflection of You
Do you try to squeeze yourself into a box that someone – or something - else has shaped for you? Does it feel artificial, constrained, contrived, and far too small? Today we reflect, and observe, that their concept of you is a reflection of them. Your concept of you is a reflection of you. You don't need to buy-in to limits set by someone else’s story. We are each the hero of our own story.
Rank #7: 016 - You Are Enough (So Is Everyone Else)
You are enough. You are worthy. You are sufficient. There is absence of absence, nothing to prove and no territory to defend. It is not possible to be other than utterly perfect…even on those days when we could use some improvement. You are alive. Life itself is enough: so are you. So is everyone else. Thank you for joining us as we explore the possibility that you are enough…and so is everyone else.

Rank #9: 005_The Fourth of "7 Ways to Take a Deep Breath": Play
Engage the body – engage any activity – with the spirit of play: exercise, movement, dance... you know what it is.... Play because it’s fun. It is a way to offer ourselves space to hear the wisdom of the body….left there, perhaps, as a gift from the gods. This is the fourth of "7 Ways to Take a Deep Breath".
Rank #10: 004_Third of "7 Ways to Take a Deep Breath": Come Home to Yourself
The body becomes home when the mind, heart and spirit can live there. This is the third of "7 Ways to Take a Deep Breath".
