It's official :: Spring has arrived, and now our first day of meditation has too.
I'm so looking forward to practicing with you over the next 7 Days.
Today we're kicking off our inaugural practice by starting with the roots :
So often-- as the busy people that we are-- it can be easy to fall into the ACTION of something without first having a heart to heart with ourselves around why we're engaging, and how we want to show up in the process.
So for today's practice, we're going to begin by doing just that:
creating a bit of space for ourselves to ask not just what we want to achieve-- but how we want to participate-- and the feeling tone that we would like to infuse into the weeks ahead.
It reminds me of something one of my favorite artists--the Brazilian mastermind Vik Muniz--once said when asked about his creative process:
"The really magical things are the ones that happen right in front of you. A lot of the time you keep looking for beauty, but it is already there. And if you look with a bit more intention, you can see it."
Because it's our first day together, I'm leading us in with a longer introduction than usual -- also, I was just pretty excited to welcome you to this series.
If you want to skip my introduction and get right to the cushion, you can forward the video to the 6 minute and 40 second mark.
Just grab a comfortable seat, and perhaps a pen + paper to capture your own insights after meditation, and click the video ABOVE.
As the old Irish blessing goes:
May the sun shine warm upon your face, and the rains fall soft upon your fields.
Welcome to In Bloom.
