Your Hero/Heroine’s Journey

By writing 250-500 words each morning, in a public forum, you can experience a hero’s journey.Here’s how it works:1. You, as a writer are merrily going on your daily routine. (Ordinary World)2. An invitation arrives to be a guest host at Online Mindful Writers Group (OMWG). (Call for adventure)3. You don’t want to do it. It makes you feel nervous and uncomfortable. You don’t trust you have time to do it or are worthy of the task. (Refusal of the call)4. An inner voice (or an outer mentor) tugs, you can do it!5. Hesitatingly you agree. (Crossing the threshold)6. Thoughts race in your mind, which topic would I choose. As you write a rough draft your hand trembles. (Tests)7. The golden thread of the Writing Meditation Practice guides you. (Allies)...

Some Musings and A Contemplative Walk

Good Morning!We all have experienced acts of love, compassion and humility amidst the current confusing, divisive, devious and callous socio-cultural environment. Here are three of my experiences:One August morning in West Virginia my husband and I went on a four-hour scenic train ride. We sat near a window on a table for four where we were introduced to a young couple. Together we took pleasure in the scenery, chatted, laughed and ate. It was Maryanne and Bernie’s fifteenth wedding anniversary. They were planning to celebrate it with dinner at an expensive restaurant that evening.For dinner we went to a place with the view of the mountains. The wine and the food were delicious. When it was time for us to pay the bill, the waitress said it had already been...

Sudha Balagopal: June Guest of Honor

Sudha Balagopal is both, a fiction writer and a yoga teacher/practitioner. Her writing shapes the yoga instruction and her yoga practice hones her writing. In many ways the two disciplines are intertwined since they both involve drawing inward.  She is the author of a novel, A New Dawn, and two short story collections. For the past three years her focus has shifted to flash fiction. In that time, she has had over three dozen flash pieces published in various journals worldwide. Her flash has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize and Best Small Fictions, and is listed in the Wigleaf Top 50, 2019. She won the Soul Making Contest in the flash category for 2017.
