Gilgoff’s Grace

Gilgoff’s Grace

When traveling, it is possible to become anxious. Flight delays, long queues at the airport, and small airline cabins can all turn a peaceful vacation or business trip into a major hassle. If you follow these suggestions, you may turn a stressful travel period into a chance to clear your thoughts and unwind. 1.Take a moment to relax. Put your job on hold when traveling, even if you feel the need to go above and above to please your boss. Business jetsetters are increasingly seeking to maintain a sense of balance while on the road, according to an American Express poll on worldwide business travel.

The majority of travelers, even on flights that have Wi-Fi capability, prefer to remain disconnected while in flight, instead watching a movie or reading a book in their seats.

Bring the necessities for stress relief.

“Take a deep breath and allow yourself to be transported to vacation-ville the moment you get on board the plane.

  • Your lips may get parched and your mouth may become dry while traveling by plane.
  • Perhaps some sort of delectable ruse?
  • In addition to being packed with electrolytes and potassium, this drink has a deliciously sweet and savory flavor.
  • Vita Ten of America’s top airports, including John F.
  • The coconut water is 100 percent pure and includes about 700 mg of potassium and approximately 15 times the amount of electrolytes found in the normal sports drink, allowing you to stay hydrated even at 30,000 feet in altitude!
  • Long-distance travel may be stressful, and yoga can be a terrific method to reduce tension.
  • Using yoga positions, Rachel Lehmann-Haupt and Bess Abrahams propose you may employ them all the way from the airport security line to take off, according to their book, Airplane Yoga: Your Emergency Manual for Relieving Inflight Stress.
  • It is possible to perform this posture while sitting in your aircraft seat or waiting room chair.
  • Make a full curl all the way up to your head, taking care not to break your neck.

As Rachel Nelson, owner of the Traveling Yogi blog, explained, “When I’m on a lengthy trip, I make it a point to get up every hour and walk along the aisles performing crescent lunges to keep the circulation and lymph circulating.” High height is detrimental to the lymphatic system and circulation, hence it is critical to move as much as possible while at high altitude.

  • To perform a few fast forward bends and stretches, I’m going to use the flight attendant area near the back of the plane.
  • With the addition of guided meditation films to its in-flight entertainment system, Qatar Carriers is one of the most recent airlines to make this change.
  • You can use a meditation app on your smart phone if your preferred airline does not provide meditation services onboard.
  • Several airports also provide a meditation area or an interfaith chapel where you may find a few minutes of peace and quiet before your flight.
  • Sometimes all that is required to bring stress levels back down is an adjustment in viewpoint on things.
  • There will be scores of wailing babies and irate passengers to cope with as a result.
  • Remember that their workplace is located on stage in a capsule at 37,000 feet.

Given this knowledge, my approach is to treat others the way I would like to be treated: helpful and respectful.” If you are in a small environment, humility and grace have a multiplier effect on your success.” — Contributed by Alex Weber Email News – February 2003 NewsIssue 10 (February 2003) via email A freenewsletter exclusively to Ashtanga Yoga news and activities is available for download.

Grace, Grunt and Good Stories at the Confluence

While I was taking pictures of the panel discussion, Eddie was capturing pictures of me. During our first full day at the Ashtanga Yoga Confluence, we were surrounded by beauty. I’m overjoyed that we’ve finally arrived! With vivid and lush gardens full of the tropical plants I’ve been seeing at the wholesale warehouse at flower school, the Catamaran Resort is a pleasant place to spend a few days. After a long day of yoga, we were in the mood for some great vegetarian Mexican food, which we discovered last night.

  1. Dena Kingsberg, our Primary Series instructor, kicked things off yesterday with a guided Primary Series.
  2. Although I can’t say much more than that, one phrase stands out: “Before grace, there’s grunt — you have to put in the effort.” The best teacher I have ever had.
  3. There was a lot of laughing and even a few tears shed during the event.
  4. Crazy.
  5. One thread that emerged clearly from the many accounts was the total trust they placed in Guruji – how he would sometimes rip them apart to the point that they were unable to walk, and yet they would return the next day, confident that Guruji would put them back together again.
  6. In the panel, Eddie Stern shared a story that was particularly memorable to me (his sense of humour is just hilarious!
  7. The tipping point had been reached, and Eddie had snapped, leaped off his mat, shouted “F****CK!” and bolted out of the shala onto the street.
  8. It was imperative that we return to the shala as soon as possible!
  9. Later in the afternoon, I attended Nancy Gilgoff’s workshop, “How I Was Taught,” which she was conducting.

Afterwards, she guided us through this specific practice, beginning with three Sun As and three Bs, progressing through standing poses (minus the twists and the two balancing poses), into the seated series (with many fewer vinyasas and navasanas, too), and finally through the first few poses of the Intermediate series before a very few backbends were performed.

  • When compared to the length and dynamism I’m continuously working on with my teacher David G, this seemed completely different.
  • Nancy has provided us with a couple of amusing anecdotes – It was Guruji who first instructed his students to perform Sun Salutations with their arms raising in front of their bodies rather than out to the side as many practitioners do nowadays.
  • If you have any shoulder pain, it is better to constantly elevate your arms at a little angle in front of your body rather than straight up and down.
  • These stances can truly instruct you on how to use the bandhas.
  • She continues to move her students swiftly into these poses because she feels they assist to balance the body, especially because she teaches Primary Series with fewer vinyasas than most other teachers (therefore less updog).
  • She advises young practitioners to take these poses rather of the entire Primary sequence, which might be too uncomfortable on their growing bodies, according to her.
  • This is another reason why we always roll in garba pindasana clockwise — kids in utero move in a clockwise direction – because energy travels clockwise in the body starting from the right foot and up the spine.
  • When she spotted statues of the Buddha sitting with his left foot in first, she inquired of the Tibetan lamas if they understood why he was shown in this manner.
  • After explaining that as students they were taught to sit with their right foot in first, they were informed that when the Buddha reached enlightenment, his energy flow shifted directions, which is why he sat in a different manner as a result.

Just a few bites here and there. So much more to tell you, but I’m running out of time! It’s been another busy and rewarding day, and I consider myself quite fortunate to be here. I’m off to a kirtan right now! Blessings, Frances

Christian group pulls support for event challenging homosexuality

5:37 p.m. on October 6th, 2010 Dan Gilgoff of ETCNN contributed the following report: According to the head of a national Christian organization, an annual event that urges school kids to “fight the promotion of homosexual activity” will no longer be sponsored since the event has grown too contentious and confrontational, according to CNN. This year’s event was sponsored by the Exodus International organization. “With all of the recent attention on bullying, we realized that we needed to equip kids with the tools they need to live out biblical tolerance and grace while treating their neighbors the way they’d like to be treated, whether they agree with them or not,” said Alan Chambers, President of Exodus International, the organization that sponsored the event this year.

A manual for this year’s Day of Truth, which is held on the same day as the Day of Silence, states that it was established “to counter the promotion of homosexual behavior and to express an opposing viewpoint from a Christian perspective.” Exodus International is the organization that organized this year’s event.

The first Day of Silence was observed in 1996.

In response to the event on Wednesday, Chambers stated, “I don’t believe it is essential anymore.” Specifically, “we wish to assist the church in being courteous to all of its neighbors, in assisting those who want assistance, and in being sympathetic toward individuals who may hold a different worldview than our own.” Exodus International, according to its website, advocates “liberation from homosexuality through the power of Jesus Christ.” According to Chambers, the organization has not changed its view on homosexuality, but it has reevaluated how best to express its message.

  1. According to a specialist in evangelical attitudes to homosexuality, Exodus’ decision is likely to be condemned by some conservatives since it is controversial.
  2. On Wednesday, at least one prominent Christian organization, Focus on the Family, came out in support of the Day of Truth.
  3. Day of Truth has encouraged students to express their free speech rights and engage in open conversation while also listening with courtesy to others, in contrast to the entire concept of’silence,'” Cushman said.
  4. Chambers said he informed the Alliance Defense Fund of his decision last week, and that it is uncertain if the organization would continue to fund the Day of Truth in the near future.

In the statement, it was said that “contrary to remarks made by GLSEN inaccurately characterizing the Day of Truth as ‘inappropriate and divisive,’ the event was always about students’ freedom to peacefully express their point of view on the issue of homosexual activity.”

My Take: 5 things I learned editing the Belief Blog

December 31st, 2012 06:00 p.m. Eastern Time’s Dan Gilgoff contributed reporting. – Religion Editor at CNN (CNN) As my last day as religion editor at approaches on Monday, it’s a good opportunity to take stock of what I’ve learned during my three years on the site. The CNN Belief Site will continue to thrive under the direction of Eric Marrapodi, with whom I’ve had the pleasure of working as a co-editor on the blog since its launch in 2010. I’m on my way to National Geographic, where I’ll be the director of digital news and information.

The tragic school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, serves as an example: On the same day that the massacre occurred, we reported about individuals wrestling with the question “Where was God?” in the wake of the tragedy and on the same day as the shooting occurred.

Searching for meaning in the midst of apparently pointless deaths and suffering is at the heart of the human experience.

Regardless of the circumstances, people are eager to discuss belief, spirituality, and the purpose of life – even when it looks that all hell has broken loose.

CNN reporter Dan Merica has been in the forefront of the news media’s coverage of what the development of “religious nones”means for American politics, as well as the burgeoning movement of activist atheists, which represents just a small part of people who do not adhere to a religious belief system.

  • Press releases will not be the catalyst for these pieces.
  • Inform the news media about the stories that should be covered in your part of the world.
  • The first article on our Belief Blog, published in May 2010, stated, “We feel that knowing the role of faith in today’s society isn’t optional or pleasant to know,” as we stated in our first Belief Blog post.
  • You don’t have to be religious to believe that religion tales are important; all you need is a curiosity in how the universe works to believe this.
  • 4.) The news media is not anti-religious in its viewpoint.
  • Truth be told, news companies such as CNN are attracted by religion because it produces stories that are rich in meaning, rife with conflict, and filled with compelling individuals.
  • deadline if you’re not a Mormon).
  • Many more religion tales originated from CNNers who shared ideas from their own religious subcultures as part of their volunteer service.
  • I was never in contact with any.
  • With the growth of reader comments, social media, and real-time stats on what our viewers are clicking on and how they’re responding, your choices and views are more influential than ever in defining our coverage than they have been previously.

We chose which stories to tell and which ones to skip because we want to see how engaged you are with the stories we’re telling. Make good use of your authority.

Valuing “moral values”

31st of December, 201206:30 PM Eastern Standard Time From CNN’s Dan Gilgoff: CNN’s Religion Editor is available for interviews. As my last day as religion editor at approaches on Monday, it’s a good opportunity to take stock of what I’ve learned during my three years here. Despite the fact that I’ve had the pleasure of co-editing the CNN Belief Blog with Eric Marrapodi since 2010, the CNN Belief Blog will continue to thrive under his direction. I’m on my way to National Geographic, where I’ll be the director of digital news and storytelling.

  1. A instance in point is the recent school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut: ” On the same day as the shooting occurred, we reported about individuals wrestling with the question “Where was God?” in the wake of the tragedy.
  2. But exploring that question got to the heart of one of the most strongly felt emotions among those in Newtown and those watching the news from anywhere in the world.
  3. The fact that our story received over 8,000 comments so fast helps to explain why.
  4. 2.) The emergence of non-religious individuals will be a major story in this century, and the news media has only begun to cover the various consequences of this phenomenon.
  5. It’s possible to find numerous such stories among the tens of millions of religious “nones” – stories about how to find meaning, maintain traditions, and practice ethical behavior in a post-religious world.
  6. Don’t be shy about expressing yourself if you are a religious “none.” Inform the news media about the stories that should be covered in your part of the globe.
  7. The first article on our Belief Blog, published in May 2010, stated, “We feel that understanding the role of faith in today’s society is neither optional or pleasant to know.” ‘It’s important to know’, says the speaker.
  8. If you believe religion tales are important, you don’t have to be religious; all you need is a curiosity in how the universe works.
  9. There is no anti-religion bias in the mainstream media.
  10. Truth be told, news companies such as CNN are captivated by religion because it produces stories that are rich in meaning, rife with conflict, and filled with charismatic individuals.

So many CNN Belief stories were generated as CNNers throughout the organization addressed fundamental questions such as “Will Catholic presidential contenders don ashes for an Ash Wednesday debate?” and “Will the Republican presidential candidates wear ashes for an election debate?” “Why don’t we explain why some American Muslim women choose to wear the hijab?” says one.

Working against religious coverage on CNN?

None that I was aware of.

More than ever before, thanks to the growth of reader comments, social media, and real-time stats about what our viewers are clicking on and how they’re reacting, your choices and opinions are influencing our coverage more than ever.

Certain stories are performed and others are not, in part, because you are either involved in or disinterested in the story. Make effective use of your authority.
