Weathering the Storm

I don't know about you, but the events of the past few months have consumed a lot of my energy and attention.

Between the pandemic and the widespread protests of systemic racism and social inequality, I feel emotionally and creatively drained. It's been a daily challenge not to get lost in the pain and anger around me. Over and again, I need to remind myself to be patient, forgiving, open to seeing the good in the world. In need of a guide, I picture a tree battered by the storm, its deep roots holding firm in the soil. It inspires me to reconnect to my roots, those simple things that ground me - walking, gardening, spending time with loved ones, connecting to my breath.

How about you? What helps you to stay grounded in difficult times?

In our June Mindfulness & Creativity drop-in, we’ll explore some grounding mindfulness practices, rooting our awareness in the body and our present-moment experience. We’ll check in with our intentions, revisiting longstanding intentions and perhaps unearthing new ones, as we consider how we might better align ourselves with what’s most important to us right now.
