There’s Water in My Nose, and I Put it There

Sometimes when I talk about my yoga experiences with friends on Facebook, I forget how strange it must all seem to them.

One of the most-liked quotes my husband posted from our most recent retreat together was an imperative to try “vomiting harmoniously”—people were equal parts awed and amused.

And probably a little disgusted.


elephant journal is dedicated to sharing the good life beyond the choir, and to all those who didn’t yet know they give a care about living a good, fun life that’s good for others, and our planet. The mindful life is about yoga, organics, sustainability, conscious consumerism, enlightened education, the contemplative arts, adventure, bicycling, family…everything. But mostly it’s about this present moment, right here, right now, and how we can best be of benefit, and have a good time doing so.
