Excited to dive into my new book The Mind Illuminated. This meditation guide integrates brain science and Buddhist wisdom to provide a road map for meditation and a way to check in with your progress towards mastery of the mind and the deepest states of peace and insight. ✨ I think it will be fascinating to learn more about the affects of meditation on the brain and although I have established a solid meditation practice, I believe in continuous study and I'm always open to learning new techniques, pushing thru boundaries and opening my heart to the wisdom of these ancient teachings. ✨ Meditation is the one thing I have personally witnessed to work wonders and I'm obsessed with learning and practicing everything there is to know about it! ✨ Have you read this book? Do you have a daily meditation practice? Share what your favorite books and/or teachings are. ✨ **If you are interested in learning how to meditate, or need help with establishing a daily practice, pm me for more details on my summer series, starting 6/4 at @practiceyogaaustin or for more info click this link >> http://bit.ly/LBDlearntomeditate << . . . #meditate #meditation #meditationclass #meditateeveryday #meditationteacher #meditationworks #themindilluminated #brainscience #cognitivepsychology #neuroscience #meditationandthebrain #calm #peace #tranquility #bequiet #bestill #beherenow #livbydesign #om #mantra #namaste #buddha #practiceyogaaustin #pranayama #alwayslearning #alwaysgrowing #gratitude

Meditation has completely turned my world around in the most positive way! In particular, it has relieved me from my ADHD symptoms - providing me with a calm, clear state of mind. It has relieved stress and anxiety from my busy-body, hyperactive ways. I no longer have a constant feeling of restless leg syndrome and the constant need to stay busy - I have become completely happy and content with stillness...in fact I love the quiet and the stillness. It has brought a profound state of peace and tranquility to my life...even when juggling the children, event planning, teaching yoga, and all the daily do's and the many hats we wear. Meditation has allowed me to learn to be more present, conscious, compassionate and fully experience joy and gratitude. I'm hooked, it works, I love it. ✨ Join me in June and learn how you can make Meditation a daily part of enriching your life too! I'm teaching a 5 class series at @practiceyogaaustin every Sunday at 2:30pm, 6/4-7/2. ✨ Register here >> http://bit.ly/LBDlearntomeditate PM me with any questions! I'd love to meditate with you this summer, let's do it! Happy Friday!

Busy life calls for meditation to find balance! ✨ Meditation works to balance your left and right brain hemispheres, resulting in what doctors call "whole brain synchronization." In turn, you tap into a host of amazing benefits: more creativity, faster learning, better emotional health and much more. ✨ When is your favorite time of day to meditate? Have you made meditation part of your daily routine? ✨ #meditate #meditation #brain #balance #leftbrain #rightbrain #meditateeveryday #dailymeditation #brainmatter #happyandhealthy #livbydesign #wholebrain #loveandlight #om #mantra #pranayama #bestill #befree #stillness #quietmind

This has been a very intense week so far; juggling mom duties, design/event planning work, teaching yoga, studying and caring for my dogs cancer/health - which has all been very draining, time consuming and emotional...and it all has almost hindered my time to meditate, but somehow I've made meditation a priority each day no matter what. This really re-emphasized how very important this meditation practice is for me, particularly as a Mother, to keep me grounded through all of this. 💕 As mothers we really do so much! We wear so many hats and we really have to keep a well-oiled machine going for so many beings!! Carving out time for yourself, for stillness, to find your breath, to reconnect with yourself, to serve yourself so that you can serve others is so very important and so very necessary. 💕 So I want to help Mothers do that. For this Mothers Day give your baby's mamma, your mamma, your sister or your best friend, who is a mamma, give yourself the gift of peace. 💕 I am offering a Mothers Day Discount on my Transformation Meditation Foundation Series at @practiceyogaaustin this June. This is a 5 series workshop, held every Sunday at 2:30pm, 6/4-7/2. Save $20 when you sign up now thru 5/14. (Regularly $95, now only $75 when you use Code: MOM20) 🎁 Register here >>http://bit.ly/LBDlearntomeditate << 🎁 Happy Mothers Day to all you amazing, hard-working, loving mammas out there!

A Vegan Diet should really not have any pushback. It really has nothing to do with what your tastebuds like, what you are accustomed to - it has to do with the survival of the planet. With the state of the environment and with the amount of violence that exists - we are torturing and murdering animals at an alarming rate in a disgusting, heinous, torturous way - and people don't want to talk about it - there is a great disconnect as a species. It is time to grow up, to wake up! A Vegan diet not only saves our beautiful animals, which are sentient beings, but by eating plant-based we are saving thousands of gallons of water. We are saving lives - we have fellow humans that are starving, but there is plenty of food - we just have a distribution problem. The rainforests are being cleared for agriculture, there are dead zones In the ocean due to animal ag feces runoff. A vegan diet is a must to stop the accelerated complete and utter destruction of the planet. The disconnect is buying meat in a package on a shelf - you are able to turn a blind eye to how it got there and what it is. If you had to source your food organically, most people wouldn't be able to participate in the violence. A vegan diet is the way to wake up, to take a step towards standing up for the planet as a whole, in its entirety. - Julie Piatt (Srimati) ✌🏻💗🌱 #veganfortheanimals #veganfortheplanet #plantpower #plantbaseddiet #veganforlove #vegan #vegansofig #vegandiet #bethechange #higherconciousness #chooselove #awake #loveandlight

I just pre-ordered my copy of #ThisCheeseIsNuts - a cookbook full of amazing #vegan cheeses that you can make at home! I've been listening to @srimati (Julie Piatt) talk about this cookbook on her podcast #divinethroughline for the past year as she has been developing and perfecting it. I'm super excited to try these out! 🌱 I know for a lot of vegetarians & non-vegans, people say cheese is the hardest thing to give up (well, not if you know the horrific things that happen in the cheese/dairy industry), but nonetheless people love their cheese. Julie has gone above and beyond researching and creating very real, cheese-like cheese made from plants and I think these are going to be so yummy! 🌱 I think I'll throw a cheese-making party once I get the book in June!! Who's in?! 🌱 You can pre-order a copy on Amazon. Only $16 right now instead of $25! Get it and let's get to planning that cheese party! ✌🏻💗🌱 #plantpower #plantbaseddiet #vegancheese #noanimalsharmed #veganforlove #veganmom #veganyogi #veganlife #vegancooking #vegancookbook #cheese #nuts #veganforlife #veganfortheanimals #veganfortheplanet #cooking #happyandhealthy #peaceloveandplants

My sweet Jonsie Bean could use some prayers today! We just found a very large mass in his lungs this week. This morning he has an appointment with an Oncologist to find out more about this tumor and what his options are. Jones is my first baby and my heart aches at the scary path we are about to walk. If you have met Jones, you know how much he steals your heart! He is absolutely the sweetest, most gentle, loving dog on the planet! He has been my best friend for 11 years! Now that he is 11, I have been preparing myself for the effects of aging, but I certainly didn't prepare for cancer to take him out! Please send him good vibes today that everything is going to be operable and he is going to be ok. I'm not ready to lose my first baby! 💗 #jones #fuckcancer #dogsofinsta #mansbestfriend #womansbestfriend #ilovemylab #labsofinstagram

Sometimes the tastiest dinners are when you are down to the last bit of groceries and you throw everything but the fridge together to make something of it! 🌱 This was simple & delicious! Sautéed veggies (asparagus, carrots, broccoli & spinach) on top of quinoa and brown rice, finished off with cubed Tempeh that I sautéed in fresh ginger, shallots & soy sauce.

Happy Sunday everyone. May you experience effortless love and joy! May you be one with all that is! 🙏💞✨ I loved this image because I see this exact image frequently in a guided meditation I've been doing recently. ✨ I have been doing a 6-class study on a meditation to explore the Akashic Records and this is the image of the "temple of life" that I see every time!! It was like a strange deja vu right when I saw this image! ✨ What are the Akashic Records? That's exactly what I thought the first time I heard about it too! ✨ "Akasha" is a Sanskrit word meaning Primordial Substance, That from which All Creation comes. The Akasha is also Divine Love, the Divine Vibration of Sound and Light. The Akashic Records are known as the Book of Life. By working with the Akashic Records we have the possibility to connect with the Divine vibration of that dimension and to soak in the atmosphere of acceptance and love that the presence of Angelic beings creates. In this subtle and yet powerful environment we can receive direct information, guidance and inspiration about issues that concern us so we can heal and grow. It is a place to discover your souls purpose; to learn about your divine blueprint. ✨ Sound pretty far out there?! Well, it's an interesting meditation to say the least! This one is not something I do often, but it's just fun to change it up and explore new ways every now and then. Sometimes I like to sit in quiet, other times I like to explore other dimensions! Meditation is a beautiful journey no matter what! ✨💞🙏 . . . #loveandlight #thisisit #weareone #gratitude #happysunday #sacredprayer #akashicrecords #akasha #divineblueprint #souljourney #higherconciousness #selfrealization #meditate #meditation #meditateeveryday #adventurertime #love #bethelight

For date night tonight, we went to a meditation class at @yogayogaaustin After getting very comfy lying down with blankets and bolsters and pillows and eye masks, they guided us through an hour long Yoga Nidra meditation, which was amazing! ✨ If you've never done a Yoga Nidra meditation, it's a must try! Yoga Nidra means yogic sleep...it's a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping; a deep, healing, soothing, restorative rest. They say 45 min of yoga Nidra is as beneficial as a 4 hour nap! ✨ My poor, hard-working, worn out hubs was asleep within the first minute! He said I am the best wife ever and best date planner...giving him the gift of naps every time we go on these meditation dates! 😴 . . . #meditation #meditate #yoganidra #couplesthatmeditatetogetherstaytogether #naptime #hubbynapshard #yogayoga #restored #justbreathe #bepresent #thisisit #fridaydatenight #belove #toepfadventures #guidedmeditation #goodvibes #higherconsciousness #justrelax #om #namaste

"To really be in the moment, be dead while still alive. Allow yourself to experience the sensation of of THIS IS IT. When you experience that moment as if this is it, you will instinctively get the most out of that breath. You will connect the most out of everything around you. You will interface to the greatest depth with everyone around you. The things that have separated you from those around you will disappear." -Guru Singh ✨ #beinthemoment #thisisit #bepresent #mindfulness #justbreathe
