Quieting the Storm with Stillness

Quieting the Storm with Stillness

April 9, 2020

What's your go-to when you don't know what to do? Noreen, Gennifer and EJ talk about how when confronting danger, sometimes the best survival tactic is to just be still. 


The fight, flight or freeze reactions running through so many people’s bodies right now can result in a prolonged state of alarm, creating an overload of hormones. In turn, those can deplete one's energy, lower the immune system and ultimately can do more damage than good. Join us as we discuss how being still can quietly bring us to safety and reveal the way to what's next.

Serenity Now! Tips from an NYC First Responder’s Spiritual Toolbox

Serenity Now! Tips from an NYC First Responder’s Spiritual Toolbox

March 29, 2020
 
We asked an FDNY lieutenant how he deals with unrelenting stress, and we’re sharing what he revealed. Have you noticed a spike in undeniable real-life stress over the past weeks? We thought so.
 
Our interview with our mindful, meditating first responder was already scheduled when the world flipped and froze, so we all Zoom’ed in from our quarantined corners for a powerful conversation recorded from our couches and closets.
 
We're honored to bring you our Serenity Now Special Episode, featuring an FDNY lieutenant and OEM first responder in the YPM family. He’s literally part of Noreen’s family; it's her brother Gene O’Donnell — aka g.o.d. Gene completely inspires us from our Corona-daze with his take on showing up consciously and compassionately to ourselves and others when the Unpredictable confronts us.

In YPM style, we tilt the philosophical scales towards fun when Gene shares some seriously hilarious stories and the sibling smartasses can’t hold back.

Because, hey, we’re here to remind you that life still shines bright beyond the clouds!

Is a sign just a sign? Or a message from the Universe? And if it's a message, what do you do about it? We talk about how to determine and recognize when a coincidence transcends into synchronicity.
