What Does The Term Mind Detoxing Mean?

Wow. I love this term. We’re all very aware of detoxing our bodies, but we’ll allow our minds to be filled with all types of filth and never clean them out. I hear people sometimes say that meditation is emptying of the mind, to which confirm, yes, we all need a little mind emptying because …

How Can I Succeed in College While Having Depression?

My dear friend. You do not have to live with depression as a student in college or otherwise.

How Do I Know If I’m Meditating Right?

Typically I tell people that the only bad meditation is the one that you don’t do. You will find that each experience can be different.
