urban views | Downtown Skyline from the New Museum

The day after the June solstice I am enjoying the commending views of downtown Manhattan from the New Museum rooftop, after a 4.5 miles walk.

Events | Summer Solstice, International Yoga Day, Strawberry Moon

On June 20 2016 the solstice coincides with the full moon—called strawberry moon. June 21 is also  International Yoga Day. The June solstice marks the shortest nigh and longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere (summer solstice), while coincide with the shortest day and longest night in the southern hemisphere (winter solstice)
In this very special day I am practicing the "Finding the Axis Mundi" movement sequence in a place very special to me: the NYC Hudson River waterfront, by the 70 Street pier. It is a healing practice dedicated to victims of domestic violence and bullying. Awareness of movement empowers and promotes healing.
Namaste to ourselves, sun, earth and moon, in this special moment of connection with the universe.

Father's Day | Remembering My Father

Dear Father,

Thanks for teaching me honesty and respect.

Now, more than ever while dealing with my former spouse cowardice, greed and deception, I appreciate the values you lived by, your being a gentleman and strength.

Art Installation & EEG | Mutual Wave Machine

Zoe and I participated at the art installation "Mutual Wave Machine on June 17, at the 3LD Art and Technology Center: The Mutual Wave Machine is described as "an interactive neurofeedback installation & neuroscience experiment that embodies the elusive notion of ‘being on the same wavelength’ with another person through brainwave synchrony. Enclosed by an intimate capsule and immersed in an audiovisual environment that responds and reflects their shared brain activity, two visitors can directly experience and manipulate their internal efforts to approach or distance themselves from each other."
