Valuing Constructive Rest through Reciprocity
April 22, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
just by shimmering at the meadow’s edge or floating lazily on a pond,
I could be doing the work of the world while standing silent in the sun.”
Today is Earth Day and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than landing and locating. Feeling the ground under my body, sinking into the land I belong to, and thanking her for all her support and nourishment. Asking her what she needs this moment, how best may I show her my love and appreciation. She (like all women) does not need fixing ~ she needs to be seen, cherished ~ she needs love and gratitude…the rest will come…
To land is to awaken my responsibility and my longing for reciprocity
