September Meditation: Welcome, Fall
Right now we're getting ready for a change of season. Our beautiful fantastic summer is coming to an end. Many people, many people mourn the passing of the summer. A common prescription for the Fall funk is often to abuse our body with sugars and hot chocolates, pumpkin pies and spices associated with the seasons and holidays. That seems to be how we find comfort.
I offer a different perspective. There are many many wonderful plus sides of the fall season. But it can really be difficult to see …

Remember, this day, this very moment, is yours to shape, create, and experience. Own it. Start by stepping outside, allowing your face to smile, and embracing the beauty around you.

Celebrating The Song Of Summer
Now summer is in flower and natures hum is never silent...
In his “Shepards Calendar”, Poet John Clare recalls that buzzing song of a summer day: “The green wood fly and the blossom painting bee are never weary of their melody...”
Today, I invite you to celebrate the song of summer, for natures hum is never silent. Where do you hear it? From the early morning calling birds? the june bugs on the screen? the rippling of a brook?
It is summer. In the yard, baby bunnies munch on new grass…
May Meditation: Plant Your Garden
It's a time to reconnect to the earth to yourself. I remind you as you enter a state of stillness to simply breathe. How blessed are we to breathe to live. So feel it. Feel the sensations of those breaths. Feel how your body responds to each and every breath. Feel your clothing brushing up against your skin. As your chest rises and falls, feel your ribcage open expand as you breathe in to allow your lungs to fill with precious air.
Feel the release as you exhale. Become hyper aware of what you ar…

Spring - Awaken Your Senses Meditation
As we get ready to change from winter to spring, I wonder what is the first thing you notice?
The initial signs of spring may be subtle. The sunrise is a little earlier and climbs a little higher into the sky. But then I look to the tree line. I see the slight orange and red thickening of the first heart buds along a melt off runnel in the woods. The skunk cabbage emerges fully formed from under the snow at a still half frozen vernal pool. I hear that duck like croaking of the wood frog. And th…

Thank you. It’s that simple.
Thank you for taking a moment from your busy day.
