One of the best parts of going on a road trip adventure is everything that you see along your drive. A Buddhist teacher I respect a great deal once proclaimed a warning about meditation: Don't do it unless you're willing to change. To close out meditation programs I lead, each participant has the opportunity to anonymously offer an issue that they are working with in their own life. Monday morning I woke up and did what I have done every Monday morning for the past three weeks: I practiced a compassion meditation in honor of my recently deceased father.

Personally, I just think it's a matter of choosing a pattern, color or length that best suit your legs. If you're one of the two gazillion people aiming to launch a meditation practice in this new year, please heed that warning. I teamed up with Chrissy's and my bestie, Michelle from YoGoGirls, to bring you these playful and sporty looks.
Off the meditation cushion, we can be present with the people we encounter, our morning commute, the food we eat, everything.

We sipped on wine and she let me interrogate her about her work bringing the grounding practice of meditation into the activist world.
Sometimes the best way to see ourselves through our heartbreak is to be with our heartbreak, with or without another human bearing witness to our pain.
