    Change and Permanence

    I’m back in Rishikesh after several years’ absence, slowly taking in all the remarkable changes (I hesitate to say developments) that have happened here since 2013.

    Nail biting times

    The news around the world these days can be pretty distressing and, for some, it might cause an underlying feeling of anxiety, even if we’re not entirely conscious of these stressful effects. This time of year can also trigger anxiety, destabilizing our energy as the days get shorter and the weather becomes more unpredictable: nervous habits and mental agitation are…
