[Episode 15] Freedom From Attachment

5/16/2019
More
Happy Day, Friends! On today's episode, I dive into a wee bit of yoga philosophy from the Yoga Sutras, looking at attachment (raga) and non-attachment (vairagya). I've been reflecting a lot about attachment lately because of the tea cup story I share in this episode (and on the episode with Gaelyn Godwin, Abbot of the Houston Zen Center). I thought you may find it valuable to understand that when we are attached to people, experiences, and objects we tend to feel a push-pull cycle of...

5/8/2019
More
Happy Day, Friend! I hope you enjoy this bonus mama bear's day episode with me and my older son, Kane Davis. Several years ago, Kane lost his father, and I lost my ex-husband, to suicide. It was a very painful time in our lives and it still is very painful at times. I know many moms love to make things better for their kiddos. But, there are some things that just don't get better with bandaids. Emotional and spiritual pain is something you must process, not cover up. As we celebrate...

[Episode 8] Five Ways To Teach Through Behavior

3/8/2019
More
Happy Day, Friends! On Episode 8 of Mindful Living with Athea Davis, I talk about modeling the behavior we want to see in others. It's a powerful tool and way of life! People learn so much from the way we behave instead of the things we actually say. This is especially true for our kids and students! Behavior is the way we express our thoughts and emotions. If you wonder why you say the same thing over and over again to your kids and nothing sticks, check if your behavior is aligning with...

Happy Day, Friends! On Episode 2 of Mindful Living with Athea Davis we're going to talk about how to get clarity on your goal. Last week we looked at the SMART goal framework when working on your most important goal of the year. I think one of the hardest steps in the SMART goal framework is the "S"- getting specific with our goal. In fact, many of us struggle with being clear with our goals and our message. It makes perfect sense to us, but if we share with someone else it's likely our goal...
