Pracitices 

Mindfulness

When you listen to the news or read about the many crises happening all over the planet, can you remember to breathe through the emotions and neither cut them off nor go into reactivity? Can you let your heart break and act on behalf of life? How is your pain for the world a reflection of your love and passion for life.

Gratitude

Can I remember gratitude for my interconnections to the earth, to all humanity (even to ones we don’t like), to the stars? Gratitude for water, food, sky, bird song, children’s smiles...all that is given us freely by the earth.

Deep Listening

Practice when you are listening to the news or to friends and family talking about what is upsetting them.
