#PeacefulMondays: How to find your gold

By Maya Mathias / November 27, 2017

This marks the 13th #PeacefulMondays note from me to you. Time flies! When I began penning these weekly notes, I was open to the places they would take me, and to the myriad words they would hold. Life can be mundane, routine and even painful at times. But it can also be fun, free and […]


#PeacefulMondays: A musical buffet of love

By Maya Mathias / November 20, 2017

(Image from I love award shows. Glitz and glamor notwithstanding, the artistry on display is a source of inspiration. Music award shows are especially dear to me. I live and breathe music – its rhythm, rhyme and reason. As I posted on Facebook earlier today, “…music is the soundtrack to our lives, the melodic […]


#PeacefulMondays: How to heal thyself

By Maya Mathias / November 6, 2017

Health and wellness have always loomed large in my life. I almost went to medical school and, decades later, now use words as my instrument to heal the wounds, assumptions and otherwise destructive emotions we carry inside us.

#PeacefulMondays: Our power with each other

We’ve had a week where Catalonia wants to break away from Spain, Kurdistan pushes forward in breaking away from Iraq, and Nigeria and Cameroon deal with protesters who want to break away from their ruling governments. According to this New York Times article, security forces have been accused of killing protesters in both Nigeria and […]


#PeacefulMondays: The deadly denial of the unhealed

By Maya Mathias / October 2, 2017

Sunday nights are our time, a moment when I shut out the outside world, and when I hold you in my heart and mind for this #PeacefulMonday note to emerge. That moment was shattered last night, as yet another US mass shooting played out at an open-air country music concert in Las Vegas. It’s now […]


Manifesto for the Star In Your Soul

By Maya Mathias / August 23, 2017

I’m thrilled to launch my “Star In Your Soul” manifesto. Is it just me, or have the last couple of years been filled with one (okay, more like 10) too many globally-renowned icons passing? It’s sad enough when luminaries like Nelson Mandela and Maya Angelou leave us after a full and ripe life. But when […]
