Our bodies, like all of nature, are in constant change. How we walk, stand, express and think are the soup of our self-creating process.
My posture photos document the structural changes I’ve accomplished over three decades. But like you, I am a work in process.
In 2020, with the closure of gyms, many people switched to walking. Even hard core exercisers learned to love walking, one male writer dubbing it “the superior form of exercise”. Walking is Covid-safe, hassle free, and expands to fit the time you have. Fitness, therapy, entertainment, and transportation rolled into one.
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.
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.
