Hello out there, in the world!


It is said in yoga that “the world is as you see it.”  Antoine de Saint Exupery said in his book,  The Little Prince, “The essential things in life are not seen with ther eyes but with heart.”  So how do we experience the world?  How do YOU see it?

It is easy to be reactive to everything around us and to respond to the senses, oftentimes without thinking, only feeling.  Then we are at the will of events around us, twisting, we might say, in the wind.

Spiritual practices help us to know that this need not be so.  We have a choice to stop and breath.  Or to remember a calming phrase or a mantra.  We might count to ten or whistle a happy tune.  We could stop and engage compassion.  To experience equanimity no matter what surrounds us.  Or we could look through the tenderness of the heart – with kindness and love. 

This is my first adventure at writing a blog.  So I hope you might look at this beginning writing with all of the above.  My web site suggest with look for the light of eternal love.  What if we saw each other in that light all the time.  Just asking…


About deannemincer

Deanne Mincer has been a long time student of religious and spiritual studies. For many years, she was a practitioner of yoga and in the late 1980's she was drawn to share her enthusiasm by becoming a yoga teacher. Her certification, from the Himalayan Institute, was a comprehensive two year program including the study of anatomy, diet, nutrition, Ayurvedic medical practices, the methods of teaching hatha yoga, the science of breath and the study of raja (the royal path of yoga) philosophy. She has taught yoga, meditation, and spiritual classes for more than twenty years. In the mid 1990's she became a follower of Siddha Yoga where she experienced a spiritual awakening called shaktipat and her teachings took on a new and freshly informed understanding. As Deanne continued her studies, she learned level one in Reiki and also sutdied with Henry Grayson, Ph.D. where she refined her work with muscle testing and the complex of energy healing methods Dr. Grayson has developed for use with his patients. Dr. Grayson's work is illuminated in his books, Mindful Loving and Use Your Body to Heal Your Mind. Deanne teaches group and private classes in yoga as well as stress reduction programs and meditation in many forms (sitting, walking, whirling, meditation in action, and "sleeping" meditation called yoga nidra). She has developed methods of using yoga in treating those with life threatening diseases as in the programs she designed for Gilda's Club and Friends in Deed in New York City. She was a consulting producer on an alternative health program for CNBC's Alive and Wellness, and she has demonstrated yoga on network television. Deanne created the audio DC, Inner Light Yoga with Deanne Mincer and she has spoken widely and demonstrated meditation in many venues. Deanne is an enthusiastic and joyful teacher. She is known for the keen interest she takes in her students' physical and spiritual development. She stresses that each student should work at their own pace in a non-competitive and caring environment. You can read some of the comments her students have shared in the Tesimonials Section of this site. Her teaching is grounded in her own steadfast spiritual awareness - that each of us is a being of eternal light and love and that we can all come to knowing this truth for ourselves. She is eager to help guide you on this joyful path of body, mind, breath and spirit.
