Connecting With Community

Below is an incredibly sweet note from a student who recently attended a TBB Meditation Challenge.

Hi Andy,

I was endorsing your workshop to the nice woman working at STIL STUDIO the other day. I told her I had attended one of your workshops and that I was a complete novice, and that you are wonderful (which you are!) and that she should certainly attend. You get my thumbs up, way UP!

I started my yoga practice a little over 10 years ago, but it wasn’t until the past year or so that I noticed I needed something else other than asana. Don’t get me wrong, I love the asana part of my practice, but something inside of me told me I needed more, that I deserved more.

So, I began seeking out ways to get in touch with with the real me, my authentic Self. I started practicing another style of yoga (Para Yoga), focusing on pranayama and realized that beginning a meditation practice might be what I need the most. But where was I to begin?

"Breathe" Free Guided Meditation (audio)

“Smile, breathe and go slowly.”  – Thich Nhat Hanh

I hope you enjoy this free guided meditation that I created for you to help you stay centered in this turbulent time.  A Breath Awareness Meditation is one of the quickest ways to ground and center yourself.  Watching the breath in a meditation practice can help your mind let go of its often chaotic and turbulent thoughts.  The breath will fill you with invigorating energy and inspiration to be in this world, but not caught up in the drama around you.  I hope this helps!

Staying Mindful

I’m thinking of you all in these final days before the Boston Marathon.  I’m excited, ready to go, and can’t wait for the crowds of people to pull me from Hopkinton to Boston.  Admittedly, I have a daunting task ahead of me, but I’m lucky I get to do this – and incredibly lucky to a part of the Dana Farber team.

When I head to Hopkinton on Monday for the start, I will be mindful that there are thousands of people in this country and all over the world who will be sitting in infusion rooms. They can’t decide not to have cancer because it’s snowing out; they can’t go home because their legs are spent. Their strength will propel me over the course.
