Ash Wed: Remember Man That Thou Art Dust

By Ananaia OLeary | Feb 21, 2018

I was never impressed with the whole idea of Lent, a 6-week season of deprivation in the name of spiritual growth. But growing up Catholic, there was always something just a lil bit badass about having ashes smudged onto my forehead with the forbidding admonishment: Remember, Man, that thou art dust and to dust thou […]

By Ananaia OLeary | Dec 7, 2017

Ever notice that, when times get tough, we tend to bow our heads & forge ahead, eyes lowered, chin tucked, jaw set? This posture compresses our upper chakras: Crown, 3rd Eye, Throat & Heart.

Synergy: Our Next Evolutionary Step

By Ananaia OLeary | Apr 7, 2017

What would happen if humans learned to work together harmoniously? That is not possible, you say? I challenge that. Past precedent is not proof of future possibility. Humans are a collective species. We are expressly designed to live and create together harmoniously. We simply have yet to fulfill our design. Throughout human history, we have […]
