The world is hurting. The Black community is fighting for their lives. Radical change and repair is necessary. This starts with each one of us doing the inner work to become aware of how racism lives within us and how it is perpetuated through us.
.
At Calm, we're looking in the mirror and asking ourselves how we can interrupt systemic racism and show up in solidarity with the Black community. To begin, we are donating to NAACP Legal Defense Fund. We’re listening. We’re learning. We can and will do better.
.
Thanks to @christislomka for these beautiful words and speaking on our behalf at Calm. 💜

This is me well rested. I have been creating more balance in my life these last few weeks, and I feel lighter and happier than I have felt in years. (When I haven't been travelling.) It’s hard not to get swept up in the race that is life, but if we don't pay attention, we can lose ourselves in it. I have lost myself over and over. I know exhaustion well. Today I will continue breathing deeply, and moving gently. I wish that for all of you too. 💜

Sadly, I am killing this plant. 😢
.
It’s called a Peace lilly. At first, I think I put it in an area where it didn’t get enough sunlight, but now it’s in an area where it’s getting a ton of light, so I’m not sure what the problem is. Watering it once a week. The flowers are wilting, the bottom leaves are turning yellow. Does anyone with a green thumb, who is familiar with this type of plant have any suggestions? 🙏 .

Each time I start to write, my words fall apart, because nothing I could possibly say feels sufficient. No words will bring you back. No words express how sorry I am. But I do promise that we will not forget your name. #georgefloyd #rip #blacklivesmatter #wordsarenotenough #justiceforgeorgefloyd

I am feeling grateful to have enjoyed some live social distancing yesterday with my good friend, @carolyn.plater. It was so nice to connect, and have some girl-time, and feel a bit of normalcy. We were mindful of Covid, and felt that it was safe to chat and connect outside in the sunshine. If you aren't following Carolyn or her meditation studio, @myhoame, I encourage you to offer them both a follow. Carolyn is a beautiful human being, and amazing entrepreneur. She did something I used to dream of doing; she created a space for people to gather, and sit and connect and grow together. Hoame is still doing online events, and offering meditations, and other fun stuff on their social accounts, so if you are missing live meditation sits and sound baths, this may be a good option for you. Photo credit goes to @advansun who swung by towards the end of our visit to also say hello. 🌸

Magnolia trees are one of my favorite things about spring. Not only are they beautiful, but their nature teaches us a valuable lesson. Since we know they will soon be gone, we especially appreciate the time we have with them. We observe them, and appreciate them, without a tight grip, and when the time comes, we gently let them go. 🌸

I know, I know... There is so much to feel these days. There has never been a time that I can remember when the world felt messier. Whatever comes up; fear, joy, grief, stillness, give yourself permission to feel it. 💜

Since everyone has been sharing the albums that most influenced their lives, for #TBT, I thought it would be appropo to go back to a time (25 years ago) when music and art permeated every aspect of my life. 😍

Hello friends! Join us as we invite the world together for a global meditation. Let’s connect for a time of peace. .
.
On World Meditation Day, May 21 at 10am PST / 1 pm EST, let’s come together for a special live meditation on YouTube. Although we are all facing an extraordinary amount of change and uncertainty, we can pause, and take a breath to find some calm within the chaos.
.
.
In this guided practice, we’ll settle our mind and body, and then strengthen feelings of loving kindness. Together, let’s cultivate compassion for ourselves and others. .
.
We’re also hosting meditation events in French, led by Sandrine Jourdren, and in Portuguese, led by Andréa Perdigão, at 10am BRT and CET.
.
.
Even apart, we can find stillness together. Subscribe to Calm’s YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/calm) to be notified when the event is starting. I hope you can join us! 💜

Happy Mother's Day to my amazing mother. Posting four moments we shared together. (and I can't ignore the fact that, man-oh-man, was I an ugly baby - Thanks for taking me home, lol! 😂) Each year I appreciate you even more. Although we may not be celebrating together this year, you are in my mind and heart. 💜

This month is Mental Health Awareness Month. I've openly shared about my past struggle with depression, so feel deeply for those who currently experience it. When we’re depressed, our mind becomes extremely rigid. And there’s a sense of time standing still. The idea that things could improve feels impossible. But the truth is, no matter how deep our hurt goes, no matter how lost or confused or scared we are, no matter how stuck we feel, we are not helpless, for nothing stays the same, and no suffering is permanent. This is why meditating on impermanence is so helpful. .
.
When we become mindful of our moment to moment existence, we’re able to clearly see the nature of impermanence. All of our thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations change. And our relationship to our circumstances changes. Everything that begins has an ending. Such is the case with grief, pain, and heartache. Watch it arise, watch it change, watch it pass. And as you do, cradle whatever comes up with tenderness. You are here now. It may hurt but it will change. I promise, this too, shall pass. 💜

So many of us are struggling in different ways right now. Your challenges are different than mine, and vice versa. I think right now, almost more than ever, we have an opportunity to deepen our capacity for empathy. Every person you speak to, every child who passes you, all of your friends who are posting about their fears or anger or grief, are experiencing this pandemic in a different way. Rather than fall into judgement, call on your empathy. Feel with them, and be with them. 💜
