Monday Mantra: Silence

“Silence is not the absence of something but the presence of everything.” -Gordon Hempton The quieter holiday season has provided much needed time to catch up on home projects.

The cold also encourages us to stay indoors so we can explore the benefits of quiet and stillness—to make time to develop and engage in self-care." - TaraMarie Perri, founder of @perriinstitute (📷 @pbcrosby | interview @jillianschein) Join @luminousarchitecture tonight at 6:30pm in Union Square for this week’s Fall Seasonal Yoga Series.
