Goal Setting as a Daily Ritual: Manifesting Affirming Goals AND Long-term Goals by Kailey Urbaniak

We've been chatting a lot around here the energy of Lakshmi and ways to invite this energy of abundance into your life to fulfill your dharma (life's purpose). Hopping on that train with less yoga-philosophy, more pen-to-paper advice is first time guest author, Kailey Urbaniak. Read below to hear Kailey's thoughts - it's a different take on abundance for you to consider so use it if you love it - plus ways to hold yourself accountable to your goals, with a special feature from her sister Jenn Urbaniak - a recent graduate of Cambio's Yoga Teacher Training program!

Creating Abundance & Aligning with Dharma by Austin Richman

Austin is here for you this week with some insight on what it really takes to create abundance in your life and how it reflects your ability to fulfill your life's purpose. This might be particularly poignant during this time of national social distancing where we have all experienced a loss of some sort. If this sticks out to you, you might consider joining Amber Richman & Erika de la Cuadra for their Align with Abundance Workshop and 40 Day Mantra Challenge starting next week, 4/28.

Spiritwell Live Gig, March 2020

As the impact of the coronavirus outbreak started to become apparent in mid-March, Spiritwell cancelled a show at Ohana Kava Bar and decided to take to live-streaming in hopes to get people on their feet, out of their heads, and into their hearts. The musical project, led by Austin Richman, brings original, heartfelt & diverse music and in this session along Erika de la Cuadra and Rebecca Burdick Meyer, offers music to dance to and chant to. Shout out to Tony Paul who we dearly missed that night on the drums! Please enjoy!

6 Rules for Spiritual Practice

What makes yoga special? People often make claims that their yoga is this or that referring to something outside of a conventional practice. Then there are the people who know nothing about the benefits of yoga outside of stretching. So what makes yoga different than lifting weights or swimming and couldn’t those activities be someone’s version of yoga? One hallmark of yoga is that it cultivates 2 things specific to it that are not intrinsic to most other activities: being and intention. ‘Being’ in the respect that one shifts the frame of their life from ‘doing’ to ‘being’ in a ways that are subtle yet profound. Intention is in the way that we have the ability to tap into an unlimited resource for creativity and creation in our lives. There are caveats to both however, and restrictions to access this potential as they are only within our ability when we play by their rules, so in this week’s installment of the Yoga Living Project I offer an outline for the 6 rules for spiritual practice that, no matter what the activity, will help cultivate the superpowers of being and intention.
