Beach Walk 636 – Turn Off the Pressure

One of my Twitter friends, @Akelatal, pointed me to a funny video the musician John Mayer did – a parody of himself. That led me to discovering that John had planned a tour this summer, expecting to have a new album. Well, no new album, but he is still doing the tour (see May 4th video), and seeing the one door closed is going to explore what might be behind another one.

He didn’t freak out and succumb to the pressure to create for some arbitrary reason. I just love that.

Beach Walk 609R – Walk with Me and Dream

Today is a replay of one of my favorite Beach Walks episodes – originally Beach Walk 150.

Please join me for a few Sun Salutations or Surya Namaskar to greet this day. As I stretched into the first back bend with my eyes open to heaven, I saw a waning full moon directly overhead in the deep blue sky. It reminded me of our connection across the many miles of land, sea, and sky. And I smiled at that.

Yoga means “union” so this seemed a natural, reinforcing event. Frequent visitors to Beach Walks will remember Show 116 with my friend Shaina Noll. You can hear one my my favorite songs from Shaina, “Dream” in today’s show. This moving meditation was also inspired by Jen and Kent’s Know Your Dreaming. Mahalo nui loa to all of you beautiful souls.

Today’s special show music is Dream by Shaina Noll.
Darest thou now oh soul; walk with me into the unknown.
You can buy the song Dream on iTunes here.

Hawaiian word:
Pilina: union

Beach Walk 585 – 5 Blessings with E.K.

Last week I went early to catch the sunrise – just me and Lexi.

The clouds were a curtain across the sun, yet it was a lovely and typical Hawaiian beach morning. It is easy to meet new people here, and start up an often inspiring conversation. Please meet my new friend, E.K., and hear about sand in the toes, green flash, the practice of five blessings, a 50-year West Point reunion, and not taking insults personally.

Hawaiian Word:
Manawa: chance, opportunity
