Friday July 09 2021, 5.00pm, The Times

She wears tailored suits, speaks in no-nonsense Antipodean tones and was formerly an executive for a global publishing company. Meet Jillian Lavender, the go-to meditation teacher for hedge funders, top lawyers and chief executives, who sign up to her classes in London and New York, each paying up to 2,000 for her time.

These high-flyers turn to her to tackle stress, anxiety, insomnia and migraines. Brown rice and sandals this is not, Lavender says. A lot of people come to me because they want to stay at the top of their game but find coping with that pressure unsustainable eventually.

Among the thousands of pupils she has taught to meditate over the past decade are the actress Sienna Miller and the wellness expert Jasmine Hemsley.

Lifeblood out of balance: Serious Play returns to the stage with a meditation on climate change and water – GazetteNET

Posted: at 1:55 am

without comments

Water is the lifeblood of the planet but in its salty form, it can also be a threat. Even as drought cripples the U.S. West and other parts of the world, rising oceans are lapping at the shores of coastal communities and islands, increasingly exposing natural ecosystems and built-up environments to flooding, storm surges and erosion.

For over two years, the Northampton theatrical ensemble Serious Play has been developing a multi-dimensional production that grapples with the threats climate change poses to water on different levels, and with it life on the planet as well as what Director Sheryl Stoodley calls our own relationships with water.

Now, after the pandemic wiped out any chance for live performances last year, Moving Water is set for a live debut July 22-25 at the Northampton Arts Trust building at 33 Hawley St., and an online screening July 30-Aug. 1. Using sound and music, movement, drama, video, a rain shower tool and rolling scaffolding, its the most ambitious production Serious Play has ever mounted, Stoodley says.

The technical stuff can make me crazy, she said with a laugh during a recent phone interview. But given everything were seeing today with drought, melting glaciersand rising seas, [the production] certainly seems timely.

And though the pandemic has delayed the presentation of Moving Water, Stoodley noted, its also helped foster a collaborative effort with other arts organizations to get the show to the finish line. Moving Water is being co-produced by the Ko Festival, the long-running summer theater festival at Amherst College which this year is offering virtual workshops and performances.

In addition, Northampton Open Media will record the live performances of Moving Water, then edit and caption them for online viewing July 30 through Aug. 1. Those presentations will also include real-time, post-show discussions with the Serious Play ensemble and guest experts; audience members can ask questions via Vimeos chat function.

Im so grateful for the support the Ko Festival and Northampton Open Media have shown us, and for the way art organizations in general have kind of pooled their efforts during this really tough time, Stoodley said. She hopes the videotaped performance can also be used as calling card for finding other venues for Moving Water.

In addition, Ko Festival Artistic Director and Co-Founder Sabrina Hamilton is handling the lighting for Moving Water.

Aside from delaying the plays debut, COVID-19 also took a toll on the cast of Moving Water, which Serious Play members first began researching in 2018. The ensemble held a couple of live workshops in 2019 to showcase parts of the production, but a few initial members of the cast had to drop out during the pandemic for economic reasons,Stoodley said.

Now the story, by playwright Eric Henry Sanders, focuses on three characters, while the pandemic, or an unnamed one, forms a backdrop to the narrative.

In an aging apartment building in acoastal U.S. city, three residents are thrown together amid debate about climate change and a shortage of fresh water. Sergei (Kermit Dunkelberg), the buildings superintendentand a refugee from the Chernobyl nuclear plant meltdownin Ukraine, discovers another resident and friend, Pakistani immigrant Zara, is missing. Two other residents, Luna (Ximena Salmern) and Drew (Will Swyers), join the search for Zara.

But there are complications galore. Zara had been working with Sergei, an older man whos been creating da Vinci-like experiments, as Stoodley puts it, to try and save the building from impending flooding. Meantime, Drew, the building owners son, dismisses climate change and is determined to maintain the status quo. And Luna, an oceanographic student from Mexico, may have very different ideas altogether on how to address water problems.

Luna represents the next generation and how they might approach these issues, Stoodleysaid. Im not sure our generation has the answers. Thats one of the questions [the production] asks: Are there other things we should be considering besides science and technology?

To tell this story on multiple levels, the stage will be backed by a screen on which Robin Doty, Stoodleys husband, will project a number of videos he has designed (including an image of Dunkelberg, wearing a snorkel and mask, walking down a street in a coastal New Jersey town that was underwater during Hurricane Sandy in 2012).

Jonny Rodgers, a composer and multi-instrumentalist from Oregon, has created the soundtrack for the production, a combination of electronic music and sounds from tuned wine glasses, also known as the glass harp. Rodgers will play the latter live at the show, Stoodley says, after working with Serious Play both live and virtually over the last few years.

The production also includes a water tank, and characters will get rained on during the performance. Rolling scaffolding represents the structure of the apartment building. The ensemble will also make use of Playtronica, a new electronic sound sensor technology that can make sound emanate from human skin or inanimate objects.

There are a lot of moving parts to this production, Stoodley noted with a laugh.

Moving Water will be staged in the Arts Trusts large, unfinished space (about 3,400 square feet), which provides lots of roomfor maneuvering but also poses additional challenges, such as rigging special lights for the play, as regular lighting is not yet part of the space.

Stoodley says the play is designed to be a really immersive experience, as its based on company members research and their own personal histories and memories of being in contact with water. That research, she notes, involved talking to and reading accounts of people who grew up in areas of chronic water scarcity.

Its really about the beauty and terror of water, she said. Water is a gathering point for the story but we didnt want to do make this just a story of disaster. We wanted it to be about empathy and about finding ways of coming together to try and deal with a crisis.

Tickets for the live performances of Moving Water, which take place July 22-24 at 8 p.m. and July 25 at 4 p.m., must be purchased in advance no walk-in sales will be available at Seating will be limited to 50 people per show.

Tickets for the online version of the play, at 8 p.m. on July 30-31 and 4 p.m. on Aug. 1, can also be purchased at Tickets for both versions of the production range from $32 (patron price), $22 (discounted price), and $10 for those with SNAP/EBT cards, on unemployment or with income affected by COVID-19.

The Health Benefits of Walking Meditation-Plus, How to Implement the Practice Into Your Daily Routine – Yahoo Lifestyle

Posted: at 1:50 am

Walking outdoors and mindfulness

Meditation is a practice that is beneficial for the mind and body. Taking a little time to relax and clear your head is important for a balanced life. The dictionary defines meditation as engaging in contemplation or reflection, or practicing mental exercise (like the concentration on breathing or repetition of a mantra) for the purpose of reaching a heightened level of spiritual awareness. If you prefer to move while doing this kind of deep thinking, walking meditation might be the best method for you.

While some practices require you to sit still or lay down, walking meditation is a chance to move around with a concentration on your body and how it feels. According to Peloton yoga instructor and meditation coach Dr. Chelsea Jackson Roberts, "Walking meditations are specifically designed to cultivate awareness and mindfulness while moving." Whether you move along a path indoors or head outside to be one with nature, walking meditation is one way to center yourself while getting some exercise.

Related: Two Simple Meditation Methods You Can Do Anywhere

Before you begin your walking meditation journey, consider what you'd like to get out of the experience. "Be intentional about where you want to walk, how long you will walk, and make sure that you are dressed comfortably in order to reduce any distractions. Make a plan [for] your intention during the walk," suggest Dr. Jackson Roberts. After you've prepared yourself it's time to figure out where you want to go. Travis Eliot, yoga instructor, meditation teacher, and co-founder of Inner Dimension TV, suggests finding a spot where you feel the most comfortable. "To prepare for walking meditation, find a quiet place where you can walk comfortably back and forth for 10-20 paces," he says. "It can be indoors or outdoors but it should be an environment where distractions are minimal and you feel at ease."

Story continues

Once you've chosen your location and set your intentions, it's time to start moving. When asked about the steps of walking mediation spiritual teacher and author Mathew Ferry acknowledges that meditation can take many forms. "There are no rules to meditation, and you have full discretion to be creative," he says. But if you really need a jumping-off point, Eliot suggests choosing a path and getting in proper alignment. "Begin by standing at one end with your feet spread about hips distance for stability. Allow your arms and hands to rest comfortably down along your sides. Close your eyes, and take a moment to feel grounded and centered. Feel the physical sensation where your feet make contact with the ground," Eliot explains. Then, when you're ready, slowly open your eyes in what Eliot calls a relaxed state of alertness.

Begin to walk slowly along your selected path and relax and let your walking feel natural. "Bring awareness to each step as you experience the sensations of lifting and placing your foot on the ground. Move at a pace that keeps you most present and aware. When you get to the end of the path, pause for a moment-center yourself, slowly turn around, pause again and when ready, proceed with awareness back along the path," Eliot says. Continue this practice for 10 minutes or longer. You can customize these steps as you see fit, as long as you focus on the point: inner peace.

More than its obvious physical pros (we all know walking is a great form of exercise) walking meditation can have many health benefits. "The intention of walking meditation is to develop and nourish an embodied awareness as you move. A walking meditation practice connects your mind and body to the present moment," says CorePower Yoga master trainer Amy Opielowski. The benefits of this practice include a calm and clear mind and supporting your ability to focus and to be fully present in each moment, explains Opielowski. "As you learn how to show up fully for each moment of life you will experience an overall expansive sense of wellbeing."

Ferry points out that letting go of negative interactions, gaining insight, and getting clarity about the next steps in life can be obtained through the quiet time you spend with yourself during walking meditation.

Euro 2020: Sterling takes up meditation to ‘stay connected’ to body – Sportstar

Posted: at 1:50 am

England forward Raheem Sterling has said he meditates in his downtime during the Euro 2020 to "stay connected" to his body and brain.

Sterling scored in Sunday's 1-0 win over Croatia as England began the Euros with a victory for the first time in nine attempts.

The Manchester City forward, who was at the weekend awarded an MBE for his services to racial equality in sport, said meditation helped him feel relaxed.

"I'm doing a little bit of meds," Sterling told British media. "I try and do it before I go to sleep get relaxed before I go to sleep. Just taking time out, being thankful and grateful for the day.

"(I'm) just trying to get connected. On the whole, not a lot of us get connected to our bodies and our brains so I am trying to get everything as one connected and be in a good place," he added.

A Meditation On Illness | Columbia News – Columbia University

Posted: at 1:50 am

without comments

Q. The pandemic makes your book especially timely, as it's partlya meditation on another illness, AIDS. Is that just a coincidence?

A. Yes, it is a coincidence, but I believe entirely in coincidences, especially as they happen in the process of writing. So the work becomes a meditation on pandemics, morality, the body, all stuff that was already in the Guibert novel and felt so eerily magnified in the process of living through and writing the book.

Q. What have you read lately that you would recommend, and what are you planning to read next?

A. I recently wrote the introduction to the Portuguese writer Maria Judite de Carvalho's 1966 novel,Empty Wardrobes, translated by the great Margaret Jull Costa and published by Two Lines Press. I've also been loving the novels of the French writer, Marie NDiaye, translated by Jordan Stump, also published by Two Lines Press.

I've been reading the diaries of the artist, Eva Hesse, for a novel that I'm working on that, in part, thinks through her sculptural practice. Next up is School of the Arts Professor Susan Bernofsky's biography of Robert Walser, for an event that I'm doing with her via the Center for the Art of Translation, in June. I also am looking forward to reading Thalia Field's new collection,Personhood.

Q. What are your summer plans?

A. I have an eight-month-old baby and a four-year-old, so my summer will revolve around them, and going to Prospect Park with them hopefully almost every day. I also am intending to eke out some of the collection I'm working on,The Missing Person.

Q. You're hosting a dinner party. Which three scholars or academics, dead or alive, would you invite, and why?

A. I would definitely invite friends who are thinkers and writers I love that I long to seeBhanu Kapil, Sofia Samatar, Danielle Dutton, T. Fleischmann are four that come to mind, but there are many more! And I probably wouldn't host a dinner partyI would try to attend a dinner party someone else hosted if I had childcare!

Cheryl reveals yoga, meditation and delivery food boxes are the secret to her youthful looks… – The Sun

Posted: at 1:50 am

without comments

CHERYL revealed yoga, meditation and delivery food boxes are the secret to her youthful looks.

The singer, 37, went on a social media hiatus through the pandemic but this wasn't the only change she made to her lifestyle.


Cheryl revealed she now does "life changing" meditation every day - as well scoffing on food delivery boxes.

Speaking to Yahoo!, the Girls Aloud singer said: "If you just meditate for two minutes a week, it becomes five minutes.

"It's life changing. It makes you more peaceful and happy."

The 5ft 3in star also dabbled in yoga, adding: "I've heard stretching adds an inch to your height."



She also used Mindful Chef recipe boxes in order to pick what to eat, admitting: "I got so fed up during the pandemic of thinking what to eat."

The singer returned to Instagram for the first time in a year last week with a smiling selfie.

The 37-year-old singer's post, captioned "We back ", came one day after it was revealed that her ex Liam Payne was single.

She also posed with her squad of hair and make-up artists in a selfie taken in a mirror.


Cheryl sought to reassure people who claimed they were too close to one another adding: "All covid tested ."

The pictures are the mum-of-one's first post since sharing a 'Black Out Tuesday' square almost exactly a year ago.

Fans were delighted, with one writing: "Omg youre bacccccck! ."

They came after Cheryl's ex Liam Payne, with whom she shares four-year-old son Bear,revealed he is singleafter splitting from Maya Henry.



Liam, 27, said: "I feel like more than anything at this point, I'm more disappointed in myself that I keep on hurting people.

"That annoys me. I've just not been very good at relationships. And I know what my pattern of things is with relationships at this point.

"I'm just not very good at them so I just need to work on myself before I put myself on to somebody else."

Are meditation apps the next to be Sherlocked? – iMore

Posted: at 1:50 am

without comments

Apple's watchOS 8 isn't out yet, but when it arrives later this year there's a good chance it'll come with new guided meditation options as part of Fitness+ if Apple's own leak is to be believed. So will apps like Calm and Headspace be the next that get Sherlocked?

'Sherlocked' is effectively a term given to an app that has been replaced by functionality natively added to an Apple device. There's a whole story behind it, but that isn't important right now. All you need to know is that a Sherlocked app tends to suffer because Apple made it either obsolete, or much less useful for whatever reason.

Adding guided meditation, or as Apple seems to be calling it, Audio Meditations, to Fitness+ makes plenty of sense. It already has guided workouts and guided walks, after all. Having someone whisper in your ear while you carry out your daily meditation is arguably the next logical step here.

If a Sherlocking is going to happen, the likes of Calm and Headspace are those most likely to suffer. According to AppAnnie numbers, Calm is the second highest-grossing app in its category, while Headspace is fifth. And that category isn't just meditation apps it's the entire Health and Fitness category. That includes Weight Watchers, Strava, Peloton, and more. It's a difficult category to come out on top in.

With two of the top five highest-grossing fitness apps being of the guided meditation variety, using it as a way to get people into Fitness+ is something else that makes sense. At $9.99 per month, Fitness+ is likely the same price, or cheaper, as dedicated apps. Will it offer the same level of features? We don't know yet, but Headspace and Calm don't offer guided workouts or guided walks, so "you pays your money and you takes your choice," as someone somewhere once said. Will the prospect of Apple Fitness+ guided meditations be enough to have people scrambling to find the best Apple Watch deals for the best Apple Watch? Maybe, maybe not.

We don't know when any of this will happen, of course. Apple removed mention of Audio Meditations from its Platforms state of the Union video earlier today, clearly not ready for it to be the talk of the town. Whether it'll make an appearance in a later watchOS 8 beta, we'll just have to wait and see.

We surely won't be the only ones watching along. Some will be holding their breath, too.
