Meditation Demystified

Meditation is simple mental focus exercise that can have powerful effects in your daily life.

When I’ve had a consistent practice of meditation, it’s also reduced stress and anxiety, increased my compassion for others, and improved...

Memories of Spanish Speaking Countries

5 Favorite Pieces of Travel Gear

I like to travel light, and typically only bring along carry-on luggage (in fact, we each only travel with one piece of carry-on luggage and a small backpack). Because of this, I’m especially careful about any new purchases. If I buy something new, it usually means I have to get rid of something else. But these are five unconventional items that I’ve found useful while...

Highlights of 2015

Another incredible year has passed! In 2015, we visited 7 countries, spent time with extended family, made many new friends, and found ourselves gradually integrating experiences and letting go of thoughts that have been holding us back for years. It hasn’t always been easy. We’ve had physical, emotional, and relationship challenges. We’ve felt tired, anxious, overwhelmed, and bored. But we’ve worked through it and learned...

Staying Sane in the City: Family-Friendly Tips for NYC

If I had to describe Manhattan in one word, it would be “energetic”. This intense place is buzzing with activity and excitement. Mammoth skyscrapers, throngs of diverse individuals, flashy advertisements, and the noise and smells of a big city. During our ten day trip there, we found ourselves feeling awed and engaged, but also exhausted and overwhelmed. It was a bit surreal to visit landmarks we’d heard and seen in countless movies, stories, and music...
