This week I’ve been watching the VERGE Conference draw together 10,000 of the brightest minds from business, technology, and sustainability to collaborate internationally on building a healthier future - the greatest human imperative and endeavor.
In this time, when it is easy to feel estranged and lonely,
a doorway opens into parts of ourselves beyond time and space,
beyond perceived limitations, toward a greater resonance with all.
Responses are pouring in from our online offering of Dynamic Tai Chi & Qigong. Join us.
"Thanks, Suki and Russell. Today the underlying anxiety was GONE after the wonderful class. I was peaceful all day. Thank you!!!!!!!"
Who among us is not called to find sanctuary at this time.
To find peace amidst a confusing and chaotic world.
To cease the mental spin and seek gentle solace.
To find ourselves when we have lost ourselves.
I find solace three ways; in my garden, in daily walks, and in moving meditation.
There is always the garden
If you have a garden or care for plants, you know of nature’s power to nurture you as you nurture her. She reminds us that all flowers must grow through dirt. She urges us to keep on growing. To release our cares and live in attunement with the natural rhythms of day and night, rain and drought, heat and cold.
Do you remember the first person, a teacher or parent perhaps, who empowered you? Who made you feel you could achieve your dreams?
Asking myself that question, a high school teacher popped to mind. She surprised me after class one day by gifting me with a hand-carved wooden coat button. The interior was of hammered metal, painted in beautiful colors. “This is a tradition in my family,” she said. “We give a button to someone special. I believe you will do wonderful things one day.”
A strong core is the trunk of our tree of life. Energy can flow upward and downward without kinks and twists. Living life from a centered place enhances our feeling of being balanced, connected to our roots and reaching outward to the world around us.
