I've been meditating with a mantra everyday since 2010—with only a few breaks and exceptions here and there. I ask myself: Why have I stuck with this habit of twittering around with an internal sound, and how can I explain this addiction to readers who are unfamiliar o...

"My voice is not that important. What's important is your inner experience," Dr. Hayden says.

I am sitting in a recliner chair. He is guiding me through a body scan.

"Your eyelids are becoming heavy, and the heavier they become, the more relaxed you become."

As much as I wanted to like the new movie about Han Solo's rise to being a lovable smuggler, I found myself struggling to settle into the story. My strife was due to one particular, glaring element of film composition that vexed my mind from the opening scene until the...

The self is composed of layers. We all know this.

The physical body alone is saturated with an intricate web of systems that operate interdependently and symbiotically in order to satisfy a wide variety of purposes.

On the AYP chat forums, there is a high level of decorum.

I use the word "decorum" because it reminds me of a cross country running coach I once had at a Jesuit high school. Our coach would say to the team (with his stern voice): "We're going to maintain decorum, gentle...

In the archetypal tale Peter Pan, the villain Captain Hook often chides the eternally pubescent Peter Pan with the admonition: "Bad form, Peter, bad form."

Form is such a fascinating concept and reality. Anything that can be perceived has form. Even ideas in the mind ha...
