Nitai Deranja: bio
The value of higher consciousness is becoming more appreciated in all aspects of life. According to Wired.com: “Meditation and mindfulness are the new rage in Silicon Valley. And it’s not just about inner peace—it’s about getting ahead.” Gradually, we are seeing the benefits of cultivating this higher consciousness in our children. Nitai Deranja has spent the past 40 years helping young people at the elementary, secondary, and collegiate levels of education to express this higher potential. What would it look like if young people carried a higher level of emotional maturity into their relationships? What if they chose their careers from an inner awareness of their talents and interests? What if they learned to approach life’s obstacles as opportunities for growth? In this interview you can discover what you can do for yourself, your family, and your schools to change the future for generations to come!

Recipe of the week    

Ayurvedic Green Beans (serves 4)

A much healthier Thanksgiving recipe than mushroom soup green beans.
Big handful of fresh green beans for 4. Green beans should snap when folded in half. Cut off the tips. Can leave whole or cut into 2-inch pieces. Boil about 6 minutes until the beans are somewhat cooked but not mushy. Drain and cool.

Meanwhile make the dressing that is great on other cooked vegetables too!

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil 
  • 2 Tbsp whole brown mustard seeds
  • ¼ tsp of sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp brown rice vinegar 

 Heat the olive oil in a small deep pot under medium heat. Add the mustard seeds and turn up the heat just high enough that the seeds pop for a minute but without burning the oil. Make sure you have lid on the pot as the hot seeds might jump out. Let the seeds and oil cool then add the salt and vinegar. Stir and mix with the green beans.

Meditation for the week

Driving Meditation 

I came up with this meditation after reading a small but mind-blowing book called Beyond The Siddhis: Supernatural Powers and the Sutras of Patanjali. This technique can be applied to anything that you do automatically – like bathing, brushing your teeth or even driving! Last summer my son and I drove from Mt. Shasta (where I found this book!) to the SF Bay Area and we decided to take the scenic route through Mt. Lassen. The drive was about 8 hours yet I was really energized and alert doing this meditation.

While I was driving, especially on the winding mountain roads, I witnessed myself accelerate, break, and turn the wheel as needed to follow my lane. So I did not have any other thoughts or judgments. I spoke very little. I just watched myself driving and listening. I noticed my son was also in a calm space of just making up songs. We both arrived happy, peaceful, and energized!
