A Tale of the Winter Scarf (and Other Layers)

In the Northeast, it appears winter is finally here. New York City had a snowfall that stuck to the ground and accumulated (a rarity), and my friends who live on Lake Champlain report temperatures that will freeze the lake well into March. Perhaps you are a Winter Adventurer excited for cross-country skiing and ice-skating. Perhaps … Continue reading

Off the Grid: Into the Dark

I’m writing this now from the comfort of my parents’ home in central Indiana, where I’ve been spending the bulk of my time the past week resting, reading, and spending time with loved ones. What I love about being here, especially this time of year, is the very real sense of light and dark. Nighttime … Continue reading

Hot and Cold, Finding Balance in Summer Extremes

Growing up in the Midwest, I learned to love the summertime thunderstorms that are particular to that region of the country. There is something so wonderfully exhilarating about watching a huge storm roll in across a field, visibly churning up the atmosphere. The feel and smell of the air changes, the sky darkens, and suddenly … Continue reading

Coming Up Empty

It is at this time of year that I tend to feel especially tired and overwhelmed.  Various projects and work commitments seem to move at lightning speed, and everyone I know (including myself) seems to be in some show  or hosting some event at opposite ends of the city that make it impossible for me … Continue reading

Coffee Shop Meditation

#Ruralist: "We’re made up of space, air, fire, water and earth. In the Northeast we experience the seasons with distinction and have an incredible opportunity to observe how the cycles and rhythms of the seasons change both around us and within us. During the winter, the body, like the natural world, is weak from fall’s death cycle and needs winter’s deep rest to reinforce its strength for spring. Winter holds a special opportunity for introspection. Trees and animals are always showing us how to live. In the winter they retreat and hibernate. 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.
