Here’s a short interview my friend Waylon at Elephant Journal did recently at the Yoga Journal Conference in Colorado with Richard Freeman about the trap of ambition in the path of yoga.

The Best (and Cheapest) Massage in Bangkok

A dear friend showed me this place years ago and I have been a fan ever since. You may know of the famous Wat Po massage school that trains many Thai massage therapists at their main school near the river. But fewer know about their satellite location in Sukhumvit–soi 39. Simple, clean, extremely efficient, the therapists are expert at their trade–I’ve never had a bad experience. Foot massage and “scrubbing” are on the ground floor, with upper levels reserved for full 1.5 or 2 hour Traditional Thai Massage. The rooms are pleasantly dark and airy, sparkly clean and calm. I have been known to book a taxi directly here from the airport on arrival in Bangkok. I can guarantee you will not walk out of here frazzled. The place is packed on Saturday afternoons, so book ahead.

Expect the Unexpected

You can never really count on things going the way you think they will, but here in Crestone, you can pretty much assume things will not go the way you think. After tending my garden for several weeks this summer, here’s what August weather can look like around here:

It definitely keeps you on your toes!

The Best Remedy I Know

Nature's Remedy

If ever the pace of life get’s you down, hurry up and take one of these…a walk in the wilderness. Nothing has the ability to renew my body and calm my mind and remind me of the preciousness of this human birth like a day in the mountains. Works every time.

A View As Vast As Space

“Although my view is as vast as space, when comes to the nature of actions and their consequences, I am extremely precise, like little particles of flour.” (Or sand.)

Hillbilly Pilgrim

Found myself at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival last week. A foot-stompin, hoot-hollering, jig-dancing good time. Yeehaw! Nothing like great music and dancing for world peace.
