Sending Good Vibes
What does it really mean to “send good vibes”? Deeply impacted by the work of Dr. Larry Dossey, Prerna reflects on the healing power of intentional prayer. Prayer is now widely accepted in the medical community as a powerful healing modality, after hundreds of research studies have proven its efficacy. What is the key to unlock the magic of prayer? How do we approach praying in an authentic way that can not only help us through suffering, but deeply impact the well-being of others, even when we can’t be physically close to them. Join Prerna for a loving-kindness meditation on Thursday May 21st, 2020 EST via Instagram Live @technically.spiritual.
Special: Relaxation Meditation
Prerna leads a 15-minute guided mindfulness practice for relaxation. In this meditation, we allow our nervous system to relax by taking full conscious breaths into the whole body. Then, we rest with the breath, focusing on the present moment, gently guiding our attention back if we wander. We close with setting intentions for ourselves and share the positive vibrations out into our world.
Contemplating Connection on Social Media with School Psychologist Lauren Ross
In this episode, Prerna and Lauren discuss the psychological implications of social media. Social media is a complex mechanism that can greatly influence our well-being. How can we use it to promote equality, social justice, and elevate humanity without getting caught up in misinformation, deep division, and disconnection to our own selves? How can school systems implement media literacy to inform the next generation about how to maintain well-being and safety on the internet? How can we as adults use our technology mindfully to not only honor our own needs, but serve as role models for the kids in our life that look up to us? Lauren Ross is a school psychologist and yoga teacher in Brooklyn, NY and a PhD candidate in school psychology at Fordham University. Born of a conviction that mindfulness should be accessible to everyone, as well as a possible tool for social justice, Lauren is currently researching mindfulness and restorative justice practices in schools.
Communication as a Spiritual Practice
Communication is the key channel through which we connect and develop relationships. In this episode, Prerna discusses how being deliberate about our daily communication can be a powerful spiritual practice that fosters compassion, presence, and awakening. She offers tools to approach speaking, listening, and digital communication through the lens of Buddhist philosophy.
