The Neuroscience of Compassion

By Silvia Mordini, Featured on Yoganonymous The conversation was loud and lively as we were waiting for the San Francisco IVY event we had gathered for: The Neuroscience of Compassion featuring Dr. James Doty. A group of Bay Area young professionals had gathered for a couple of hours before the main event to socialize and take advantage of the open bar, but when Dr. Doty took the stage, the crowd was rapt. Dr. Doty is a clinical professor in the Department of Neurosurgery at Stanford University and the director and founder of The Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education at Stanford University School of Medicine.

Why You Should Give Yourself a Timeout

By: Silvia Mordini, Featured on Yoganonymous A retreat is just that: A break from the daily grind in order to get clear on what you like about your life and what could be working better. It’s a safe space where you can take the time to step back and gain perspective to help you realize and recognize the things you’ve outgrown.

Uncertainty is Part of the Adventure

By: Silvia Mordini Life is messy. I wouldn’t want it any other way. I am in love with imperfect people. My favorite moments are when I’m unshowered, lost in a new place, first waking up in the morning, or after long 24-hour travel days. I relate easiest to rumpled people who aren’t afraid to show me what they look like when they cry ugly. My fellow travelers who wear the same three outfits for three months. The natural fashionistas who make magic with two scarves and a hat. You are beautiful to me after you’ve danced wildly for an hour and are not just “glowing” politely but are sweaty with sticky clothes and matted hair. I appreciate people who gobble up cookies or ice cream and aren’t afraid to wear…
