Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueInspirationZooLemur

This lemur has found inner peace…and he's loving it!

Sebastien Degardin from London was at the nature reserve Parc Paradiso in Mons, Belgium when he stumbled upon a peculiar site…

A lemur meditating like Buddha!

Legs crossed and arms extended, the lemur is a spitting image of the spiritual teacher.

Degardin was just glad he has his camera at the time!

He says the following about his encounter with the lemur:

He looked very peaceful. He sat on top of this big wooden house that all the lemurs sleep in.

No matter how close I got he didn’t stop. He didn’t even look up as I moved in for a close-up — he was so spaced out

We wonder what teachings this lemur has for us! LOLz!

Seems like Russell Brand is going back to his old womanizing ways after his split from Katy Perry.

The newly-single actor has apparently been "finding himself again," by spending time focusing on himself AND on the ladies.

David Duchovny Shoveled Horse Manure To Meditate

Filed under: David DuchovnyIcky Icky Dog PooHorsesFunny

david-duchovny-shovels-poo.jpg

David Duchovny recently went to a Buddhist meditation retreat at a monastery in upstate New York.

You'd think that'd probably be a really relaxing trip, but apparently it was almost the opposite.

Duchovny said:

"I just went on a retreat to a zen monastery in upstate New York. It's a type of Buddhism and meditation is a big part of it.

I'm a beginner, I've only been meditating for a little while. You pay a fee to go for this weekend and what I didn't know is that even though you pay a fee they put you to work immediately.

You go there and first you bus some tables after you eat and they had me working in the garden everyday for an hour-and-a-half. It was fun, I was shoveling horse shit out there. You pay money and then you shovel horse shit!"

There was of course, times where he wasn't knee deep in manure.

There was a lot of meditation. Though that didn't seem too relaxing either.

He said:

"You're meditating quite a lot, 45 minutes maybe three or four times a day… and it's a very strict kind of monastery, they don't want you moving at all while you're meditating. You're sitting cross-legged or sitting on your heels. Your feet go numb… but I figured out a way to cheat and to move.

There's a guy who walks around with a stick and he's banging it and you can ask him to hit you on the shoulders with the stick and it's supposed to hit a pressure point and relieve some sort of stress, so I as he walks by, you're supposed to (bow). This means, 'Please hit me'.

I'd hear him come around and hear him whacking people and when he comes I'll be able to adjust a little, that's all I'm thinking about [because] I'm so uncomfortable. So when he comes round I [bow] and he hits me once here (right shoulder) and he hits me there (left shoulder) and then you do this [bow] which means, 'Thank you for hitting me', so I got to adjust."

Sounds like he figured out how to make his stay somewhat enjoyable.

And even though it might not have been exactly what he expected, he did seem to think it was worthwhile, saying:

"I'm a seeker, a searcher, a seeker of wisdom. I don't know [if it was helpful]. It's hard to say how it gets into your life but I feel that it did.

I would go back. They have people who are there for three months, six months, people who spend their life there."

We're glad you didn't have a bad time shoveling horsie poo!

Harry Belafonte Wasn't Napping! He Was …

Filed under: TV NewsSuper Seniors

… MEDITATING!

At 84-years-old, the dude has a lot to reflect on!

Poor Harry Belafonte has been put through the ringer today as video as circulated around the net of a live broadcast from last Friday in which Harry looks to be taking a nap during his interview. However, his rep is coming forward to clarify that poor Harry was completely awake - he was just in a trance of traquilty. A sea of serenity, if you will.

His rep explains:

Is Shania Twain Struggling To Conceive?

Filed under: Baby BlabberSad SadShania Twain

shania-twain-and-husband-struggling-to-conceive

Poor thing! She just can't seem to catch a break, can she?

Star Magazine is reporting that although Shania Twain is happy with her new husband, Frederic Thiebaud, the pair are privately struggling to conceive, and although they've tried acupuncture, meditation, vitamins, and fertility drugs, nothing seems to be working!

A source explains:

“She knows conceiving can be difficult for a woman her age. She really hoped she wouldn’t have to face infertility. It’s incredibly frustrating; she’s cried over it more than once. Frederic is trying to get his new wife to consider different options, like surrogacy or adoption. He asked her if she would consider using a surrogate, and she’s open to the idea. He’s also been calling around to adoption agencies, figuring out how they should proceed if they decide that’s what they definitely want to do. She’s really hoping for a daughter, and she’s even been writing songs about it. But no matter what, she’s just excited about having more children around. She loves being a mom.”

We can't imagine how frustrating and painful this process may be for them, but hopefully she'll take her husband's advice and look into other options!

There's no wrong way to make a family, guys!

We wish you the best of luck, either way! Stay strong!

Michelle Williams Creates ‘Yoga For Single Moms’

Michelle Williams Creates ‘Yoga For Single Moms’

Michelle Williams has been through some very real hardships, and has used meditation and yoga to get through them. When her former partner Heath Ledger died she used meditation to cope, and since then has done yoga to make her a better person.

That’s why she and two friends have created the Yoga For Single Moms Project:

“A visionary project to support the sometimes challenging path of single motherhood by providing a yoga sanctuary for your health and well-being. And a fun place for your young ones to explore, create, play and be kids through yoga!"

Michelle talked to Marie Claire about her vision:

“Yoga gave me relief like nothing else; it made me a better person and a better mother. I could come back to my daughter anew. And then I started to think about how expensive it is to get a babysitter to take a yoga class, which makes it out of reach for so many women… The idea behind the program is that if you can clear the time, we do the rest. It provides childcare while the mum is in the yoga class, and it's all free.”

We love this idea! Yoga relieves stress, which single moms need more than anyone else!!
